Bleacherreport Article: The Final Four is set. In what has been an upset-filled, historic 2018 NCAA tournament, only a handful of people had the clairvoyance or were lucky enough to predict that Villanova, Kansas, Michigan and Loyola of Chicago would be the last squads standing in the 68-team bracket.
Millions of people took a stab at forecasting which teams would make it to San Antonio to fight for a national championship, but according to ESPN Stats & Info, only a minute fraction of those who filled out a bracket got it right:
The semifinal doubleheader will take place Saturday, with the final played Monday, April 2. Villanova will be looking to win another national title after cutting down the nets in 2016, while Kansas is in its 15th Final Four and hoping to win its first championship since 2008.
Michigan is in the Final Four for the first time since 2013, but it might be the most unpopular team left, if only because the Wolverines are playing the wonderful underdog that is Loyola-Chicago, which has rattled off a string of last-second wins and a crushing upset to become one of the best Cinderella stories in NCAA tournament history.
Here’s what you need to know to catch all the action.
