Default The Final Four

If you liked the look of last year's Final Four, you will love the 2015 edition.
One game — Kentucky vs. Wisconsin — is not only a matchup of two No. 1 seeds, it's a replay of last year's semifinal won by Kentucky, 74-73.
Seventh-seeded Michigan State will face Duke, a four-time national champion led by coach Mike Krzyzewski, who is in his 12th Final Four, tying the legendary John Wooden.
It is the fifth time at least three No. 1 seeds reached the Final Four. The only top-seed sweep was in 2008.
This is the third straight year one conference has had two teams in the Final Four with Wisconsin and Michigan State coming from the Big Ten. The Southeastern Conference did it last year with Kentucky and Florida and the Big East had Louisville and Syracuse in 2013.




My Picks :



Wisc - Kentucky Winner: Kentucky, but my heart wants Wisc


Duke - Mich St. Winner: Duke, but my heart wants Mich St.

Oops looks like we already have a Final Four thread, disguised as a Big Ten thread.

Living in Big 10 country I am OK with that.

Wow that was a great game by Wisconsin

I didn't think they would be able to overcome Kentucky's height, but they did just enough to pull off a memorable upset; and get revenge for last year's heartbreaking loss. Maybe Calipari will be a little more humble now.


I'm glad you were right llord

It should be a great matchup Monday night Duke -Wisconsin

Duke 68 Wisconsin 63



Duke's freshmen Grayson Allen (16 pts) coming off the bench and Tyrus Jones (23 pts), led the Blue Devils back after trailing by 9 in the second half.
High ball screens for open jumpers and fearless drives were their attack.

Wisconsin couldn't capitalize on the foul trouble of Okafor and Winslow. Perhaps they were drained after the epic win Sat night. In any case it was a great game, tied at the half, numerous lead changes and in the end, the Duke guards took the game into their own hands and produced a Championship for Coach K and the Blue Devils.

It was a great Tournament

X 2


more than I can remember, but maybe I'm too biased.



Nevertheless a truly memorable tournament.
