March Madness

Final Four teams gear up in San Antonio

March Madness returns Saturday with the semifinal round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament. The Final Four showdowns will be No. 11 Loyola-Chicago vs. No. 3 Michigan, and No. 1 Kansas vs. No. 1 Villanova.

The Ramblers have been the Cinderella squad of this year's tournament, downing No. 6 Miami, No. 3 Tennessee, No. 7 Nevada, and No. 9 Kansas State en route to San Antonio, where they will face off against a defensively stingy Wolverines team that can also put the ball in the bucket. The matchup between the Jayhawks and Wildcats, meanwhile, is all chalk, though most experts expect Villanova to come out on top.

The Ramblers and Wolverines will face off first, just after 6 p.m. ET, followed by the Jayhawks and Wildcats, with both contests on TBS. The winners will advance to the championship game, which will be played Monday, also in San Antonio.
