Two teams punched their tickets into the Final Four yesterday, and the rest of the dominos will fall on Sunday.
Ryan Spangler and the rest of the Oklahoma Sooners punched past Oregon to take the first game. Villanova held down Perry Ellis and the rest of Kansas to secure their spot this far in the bracket.
Now, we have the potential for a couple more big games, or a couple more clunkers. The Virginia Cavaliers have been playing fantastically throughout this NCAA Tournament, and honestly, Syracuse can go to hell. The North Carolina Tar Heels have also looked great, and Notre Dame has needed quite a bit of lucky juice to make it through the past two rounds. There are the chances for some upsets, but we might be looking at a Final Four featuring two No. 1 seeds and two No. 2 seeds.
Considering how wacky and wild this year has been, that seems a bit odd.
Here is the schedule for today's games.
