The Final Four is set and I cannot wait to go to Minnesota.
There are so many great storylines. Texas Tech, picked seventh in the preseason Big 12 poll, is going to its first Final Four. Chris Beard has done an incredible job leading the Red Raiders. Defense got them to Minnesota, stopping Michigan and Gonzaga.
Virginia made up for last year's disappointing first-round loss to UMBC. Tony Bennett is a class act who is making history. His father, Dick, led Wisconsin to the 2000 Final Four, meaning the Bennetts are the second father-son duo at the Final Four, joining John Thompson and JT III.
Michigan State knocked off Duke to send Tom Izzo to his eighth Final Four. Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett were sent home short of a Final Four.
Auburn continued its Cinderella run. Bruce Pearl’s team beat blue bloods Kansas, North Carolina and Kentucky en route to Minnesota.
Should be a fun Final Four.
