Men’s Final Four Preview: Diverse paths lead four contenders to San Antonio
SAN ANTONIO, TX – Kansas head coach Bill Self certainly remembers the Alamodome well, as it last hosted the Men’s NCAA Tournament Final Four in 2008–the same year Self’s Jayhawks last cut down the nets for a national title. But in order to reach the final, Kansas will first have to take on a fellow top-seed–and 2016 national champion–Villanova. In Saturday’s early game, two of college basketball’s most intricate, fluid offenses will face-off when eleventh-seeded Loyola-Chicago goes to battle with third-seeded Michigan with a spot in the national title game on the line.
