Down to the Final Four

With world-famous music, food, and culture, how could New Orleans get any better you might ask? With March Madness 2012!

Throw in a NCAA men’s basketball Final Four and you have got all the makings for one eventful weekend. New Orleans will play host to one of the most exciting events in the sport of basketball this week. This Saturday, March 31, sports fanatics everywhere will be glued to their television sets in anticipation of which basketball team will take the win. And for those lucky fans, whose brackets

are still going strong, a lot might be riding on the performance of these Final Four teams.

What started out as a 68-team tournament has now dwindled down to the last four standing: Kentucky, Louisville, Kansas, and Ohio State. These stellar teams left no room for a “Cinderella Team” in the tournament this year, maintaining a more traditional bracket with all the teams experienced in the Final Four. The number 1 overall seed Kentucky plays the number 4 seed Louisville at 6:09 pm this Saturday, and the number 2 seed Kansas plays the number 2 seed Ohio State at 8:49 pm. The winners of both games will then play for the National Championship on Monday, April 2 where one team will ultimately celebrate their amazing finish to the season as national champions.

Cross your fingers! Who will you be rooting for this year?
