The NCAA Tournament Final Four is fast approaching and fans across the country are exciting.
Among those fans pumped up for the Final Four is golf influencer Paige Spiranac, who has been following along with the tournament intently from the first round up until now.
Saturday’s semifinals pit sixth-seeded San Diego State against ninth-seeded Florida Atlanta on one side, while fourth-seeded Miami meets fifth-seeded UConn on the other.
Paige Spiranac Reveals Final Four Rooting Interest
Spiranac’s already blew up her bracket. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a rooting interest. In fact, it’s the exact opposite, as she revealed in her latest viral TikTok.
Can you relate?
“We need to talk,” she began. “So, I played golf at a University in San Diego. That school is now in the Final Four. I didn’t say anything about it. Not a peep. And this doesn’t count, because I’m not saying the school’s name. This does not count one bit. I’m very superstitious, and I feel if I would say something, because I haven’t said something yet, that if I say something now that it’s gonna be bad luck. So I’m not saying anything. And, again, this does not count. I don’t care what you say this does not count.
“In golf, I was also superstitious. I would never use the golf ball with the number one on it. If I played well one day I would eat that same breakfast the next couple days. I would only mark my ball with a quarter that was heads up. And I’m crazy because in golf none of that worked for me. I mean, I didn’t make it. I didn’t play great. But still, there’s something up there (in her head) that I just had to do it every single time…”
Spiranac, of course, was referring to San Diego State, where she played from 2012-2015. She helped lead the Aztecs to their first Mountain West Conference title in 2015.
So it’s understandable that she still has a strong attachment to the school. For her sake, let’s hope those superstitions finally work for once.
