March Madness Final Four: Here’s All You Need to Know
And then there were four…
It wasn’t an easy ride to the NCAA Tournament’s Final Four — there were a lot of upsets and even more disappointments — but after this past weekend’s Elite Eight games, the four teams that remain are battle-tested. They are Connecticut, Florida, Wisconsin, and Kentucky, and it’s not a coincidence that they’ve made it this far in the Big Dance. Whether or not they have a healthy roster or are playing their best basketball isn’t relevant, because they’re still playing: That’s the only thing that matters. The four teams that will be showcased at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas (home of the Dallas Cowboys) haven’t failed to excite thus far, and it doesn’t seem like that will change when they square off on April 5.
But what sets these teams apart? Besides the fact that they all hail from different conferences and have different seeds and overall styles of play, they have used a combination of unique players — stars — and impressive performances to get to this point. The question now becomes how will these four teams match up and how will they perform on the biggest stage? There aren’t any favorites anymore. The seeds are pointless. Now, it’s whoever has the will to win it more. Here’s a breakdown of each of the Final Four teams, in no specific order.
