It’s been a phenomenal tournament and with solid basketball all around. We’re now down to the Final Four teams in the Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament. It’s your last chance for this season to get on the bandwagon with a winning team. Each theme looks great, as does each team. And they all have a great storyline, though you can still play neutral the Bracket Madness theme.
Gary Parish, over at CBSSports.com, says “the only thing worse than Calipari losing in the Final Four with this roster would be Calipari losing to Pitino’s Cardinals in the Final Four with this roster. It would crush the Big Blue Nation more than Christian Laettner’s buzzer-beater in the 1992 East Regional final and sink Calipari worse than Mario Chalmers’ buzzer-beater in the 2008 national title game.” How’s that for adding drama to a must-win situation?
The other half of the Kentucky drama is Louisville. Louisville will take an eight-game winning streak on its trip to New Orleans. Awaiting a matchup with Pitino’s old school, Kentucky. Bitter pill, better game. This is what makes sports fun.
2. Ohio State
The Buckeyes make their first trip to the Final Four since 2007, where they lost in the national championship to Florida. They have lost in the regional semifinals in each of the past two seasons, and coach Thad Matta wasn’t sure they would make it that far after a series of poor practices. Chastened with mediocrity, they responded with motivation and are on their way to the Big Easy.
The Jayhawks play in their first Final Four since 2008, when they won the national championship. For those of you looking for any kind of sign, Kansas began this year’s tournament in Omaha, Neb., the same place as four years ago. We’ll see if it helps get them back in the Championship game.
