This pre-play will be nothing fancy, just the scores. As I write this, the first two First Four games were already played last night. Regardless, I've decided to move ahead anyway. Let's find out who will be cutting down the nets!
The Final Four matchups are now set, with Alabama being the only first seed left in the tournament. We also have a Cinderella team in Florida Atlantic. Let's wrap this up and see who will take home the national title!
Alabama 91 - Florida Atlantic 86 (OT)
Texas 99 - Gonzaga 92
Alabama 95 - Texas 88
And with that, Alabama, the only first seed remaining in the tournament cuts down the nets! The biggest surprise by far was Florida Atlantic's unexpected run to the Final Four. Iona's spectacular run in the West Region was also a highlight.
With this pre-play completed, all that's left is to see whether the real tournament is anything like this.
