2018 Final Four

No. 1 seed in East RegionalVillanova has yet to win by fewer than 12 points in the NCAA Tournament, its latest dominant performance coming Sunday with a convincing 71-59 defeat of Texas Tech. The Wildcats are making their second Final Four appearance in three seasons, and are two wins away from winning a second title in that same span.

No. 1 seed in Midwest RegionalKansas faced a challenging road to San Antonio but proved its championship mettle by ousting No. 2 seed Duke in the Elite Eight in an overtime thriller. The Jayhawks are seeking a national championship ten years removed from their last under Bill Self — and ironically, it will take place at the Alamodome in San Antonio, where Self cut down the nets a decade ago.

No. 3 seed in West RegionalThe Michigan Wolverines made NCAA Tournament life difficult on themselves early, winning their first two by rather uncomfortably close margins. But since, the Wolverines have flipped a switch and put their top-5 defense to the test, holding Texas A&M and Florida State to a combined 126 points en route to its first Final Four since 2013.
4
No. 11 seed in South RegionalMeet your Cinderella, folks. Loyola-Chicago, the No. 11 seed in the South Region, won its first three games by a combined four points in the NCAA Tournament before punching its Final Four ticket with a 78-62 victory over Kansas State. It’s the first time the Ramblers will be in the Final Four since 1963.
