Final Four Packing for Houston
It’s official and you can carve it in stone. The NCAA College Basketball tournament is down to the Final Four, and they’re packing their bags for the championship games this weekend at Reliant Stadium in Houston.
As it almost always does, the Final Four has at least one Cinderella team. The team nobody thought even belonged in the tournament has defeated the number one team nobody thought could lose. Virginia Commonwealth routed top seed Kansas 71-61 Sunday, to win the trip to Houston. The other Cinderella team, Butler, beat Florida 74 to 71 to punch its ticket to Houston.
Connecticut squeaked by Arizona 65-63, and Kentucky beat North Carolina 76-69 to round out the Final Four.
VCU will play Butler in the first semi-final game Saturday at Reliant. Perennial powerhouses Connecticut and Kentucky will play the other semi-final game. The championship game will be played Monday night.
