Anybody who enjoys the sheer chaos of the NCAA Tournament has been having a whole lot of fun this month.
The tournament has been loaded with drama and plenty of memorable upsets.
It took barely any time at all for us to get our first wild moment as 13-seed Furman got a late steal and hit a 3 with time winding down to take down 4-seed Virginia.
THe pandemonium hasn’t stopped from there.
15-seed Princeton made it to the Sweet Sixteen with wins over Arizona and Missouri. Fairleigh Dickinson took down 1-seed Purdue.
By the time the Sweet Sixteen rolled around, Houston and Alabama were the only two remaining 1-seeds. They didn’t make it through the round. That made this the first tournament ever to not have a 1-seed in the Elite Eight.
Yesterday, UCONN dismantled Gonzaga. That meant there wouldn’t be a 3-seed in the Final Four.
Today, Miami eliminated Texas, who was the last of the 2-seeds.
According to ESPN’s Field Yates, this will be the first tournament in history where there isn’t a 1, 2, or 3 in the Final Four.
For the first time in NCAA Tournament history, the Final Four will not feature a 1, 2, or 3 seed.
UConn as a 4 is the highest-seeded team this year.
