March Madness 2010 Final FourCategory: Basketball
After four grueling rounds in the ongoing 2010 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament, teams slowly bowed down one by one until only 4 college basketball teams remain.
Out of the original 65 teams all over the USA that started the March Madness, four teams stood tall above all them.
They are the NCAA Final Four 2010 teams.
And they will be battling it out for supremacy over the right to be called the NCAA champions.
Duke, Michigan State, West Virginia and Butler are the four teams with enough guts and talent to reach the NCAA Final Four 2010.
Duke (34-5) is the South Region’s #1 seed and is the only #1 seed to make it this far. Duke has won three national titles, in 1991, 1992 and 2001. This is the Blue Devils’ 15th Final Four appearance, and they were runners-up in 1964, ’78, ’86, ’90, ’94 and ’99.
Michigan State (28-8) is the Midwest Region’s #5 seed. Michigan State has won two national titles – in 1979 and 2000. This is the Spartans’ eighth Final Four appearance; they were runner-up last season.
West Virginia (31-6) is the #2 seed for the East Region. This is West Virginia’s second Final Four appearance; WVU was the runner-up in 1959, when a Jerry West-led team lost by one to California.
Butler (32-4) is the #5 seed for the West Region. This is Butler’s first appearance in the Final Four; the Bulldogs never even had been to the Elite Eight before this season.
The NCAA Final Four 2010 bracket would be:
Duke vs West Virginia
Michigan State vs Butler
The 2010 NCAA Basketball Tournament will conclude with the championship game on April 5 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
