The Final Four, 2015!

127Alrighty then, the second weekend of the NCAA College Basketball Tournament is in the books and the original field of 68 has now been reduced to the final four teams!  The pinnacle of the college basketball season is upon us.

From the Sweet Sixteen to the Elite Eight, all but one of the higher seeded teams advanced.  Michigan State was the lowest seed (#7) remaining in the Elite Eight following their victory over the University of Oklahoma on Friday.  Go Green!

From the Elite Eight to the Final Four . . . the #1 seeds advanced in three of the four regions . . . the Midwest (Kentucky), the South (Duke), and the West (Wisconsin).  But in the East, once again the Michigan State Spartans, a #7 seed, were able to advance by defeating the Louisville Cardinals (#4 seed) in overtime to secure their spot in the Final Four!  Woohoo, what a game!  Go Green!

Next up for the Spartans the Duke Blue Devils on Saturday for a chance to advance to the title game next Monday.
