The NCAA Tournament has been a wild ride, much as expected, and has successfully lived up to its title of “March Madness.”

Right from the start, brackets were busted with Georgia State defeating Baylor, followed by another 14 seed topping a 3 seed in University of Alabama, Birmingham beating Iowa State.

Heading into the Elite Eight, Kentucky, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Arizona, Louisville, Michigan State, Duke and Gonzaga remained.

Kentucky improved to 38-0 after narrowly defeating Notre Dame.  A pair of free throws late in the game by Aaron Harrison lifted the Wildcats to a 68-66 victory.

The Badgers defeated the Arizona Wildcats for a second straight year in the Elite 8, but this time in regulation.  Sam Dekker’s second half shooting propelled the Badgers to the Final Four, where they will meet Kentucky.

Michigan State was able to hold off the strong attack of the Louisville Cardinals to get to its ninth Final Four.  Led by senior guard Travis Trice and junior Denzel Valentine, the Spartans look to take down Duke and projected first overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, Jahlil Okafor.

The Duke Blue Devils defeated the Gonzaga Bulldogs in one of the least entertaining games of March.  Okafor overpowered the Bulldogs in the post and led the Blue Devils to a 66-52 victory.

The Badgers attempt to take down the undefeated Wildcats on April 4, something no team has been able to do all year.

With nine McDonald’s All-Americans on its roster, the Wildcats have the greatest chance to win the NCAA Championship.

Duke and Michigan State will play in the other Final Four game.  Heavily favored Duke expects to end the Cinderella story of Michigan State.

The Schreiber Times predicts Kentucky will defeat Duke in the finals 78-70, completing Kentuckey’s perfect year.
