GAME THREAD: NCAA Tournament Round 4, Day 1

Two teams punch their tickets to the Final Four today.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-Tennessee vs Loyola Chicago Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: The start of the Elite Eight!

WHAT: The fourth round of the NCAA tournament

WHEN: 5:09 p.m. (CT) and 7:49 p.m. (CT)

WHERE: Atlanta, GA, and Los Angeles, CA


We’re in the home stretch of the tournament, as the Final Four will be decided today and tomorrow. It’s a battle of underdogs in Game 1 today, with Loyola Chicago going against Kansas State, two teams that nobody thought would be competing for a Final Four bid. The other game has some more traditional teams, although Florida State as a nine seed is a major underdog to be at this spot as well. They’ll be taking on a molten-lava-hot Michigan team, that might just shoot it’s way to a national championship with the way things are going.

Please be nice in the comments and enjoy the games! Not as many potential Mavericks prospects in this one, but it should still be two entertaining games.
