Butler is back as well, advancing to the semifinals for the second year in a row. The eighth-seeded Bulldogs eliminated No. 1 Pittsburgh in the second round and defeated No. 2 Florida in the Elite Eight.
Kemba Walker and the UConn Huskies haven't slowed down after winning the Big East tournament, winning nine games in 19 days. Kentucky, the favorite in Vegas, took down the top-seeded Ohio State Buckeyes and beat North Carolina in the regional finals to reach the Final Four. So which team will come out on top?
