NCAA Basketball Tournament Round-Up – Cinderellas In the Final Four

Can you believe the upsets this year? And who the Final Four teams are? I chose Kansas to go all the way, only to find out that they got beat by Virginia Commonwealth University on Sunday!

VCU and Butler will meet Saturday in Houston in the most unlikely Final Four match up in NCAA Tournament history.

Led by  Jamie Skeen’s 26 points, 11-seed VCU continued their impressive run of giant slaying with a surprisingly easy 71-61 victory over the one-seed Kansas Jayhawks.

Eight-seed Butler punched their ticket to Houston with a thrilling 74-to-71 overtime win over the Florida Gators, making their 34-year old coach Brad Stevens the youngest man to ever twice coach his team to the Final Four.

Traditional powers UConn and Kentucky emerged from the other two Elite Eight games, but even with that infusion of blue blood this will be the first time since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985 that there will be no one or two-seed playing in the Final Four.

How improbable is this scenario? According to ESPN, only two of the 5.9 million brackets entered into their Tournament Challenge correctly predicted the remaining four teams.
