And now, some random tidbits, stats on the Final Four teams.
Four different conferences are represented for the third time in four years. The Big East had two last year (UConn and 'Nova).
It's the first time since 2004 only one No. 1 seed has made the Final Four. No. 2 UConn beat No. 1 Duke in the national semifinals that season.
This'll be the 11th Final Four for Duke coach Mike Krzyewski, who's now tied with ex-UNC legend Dean Smith for second place. (UCLA legend John Wooden went 12 times.)
Michigan State coach Tom Izzo is now tied with Adolph Rupp and Denny Crum for fifth. They've all been six times.
Butler (32-4), Duke (33-5), Michigan State (28-8) and West Virginia (31-6) are a combined 124-23, an 84.4 win percentage. That's slightly worse than last year (123-21, 85.4) and well short of 2008 (143-9, 94.1). But it is higher than any other season of the previous decade except '07 and '05.
Michigan State and Butler are just the sixth and seventh 5 seed to make the final weekend.
West Virginia hasn't been this far since 1959. The Spartans are making their second straight appearance. Duke's here for the 15th time.
It'll be Butler's first appearance in the Final Four, the first since George Mason in 2006. The Bulldogs also now account for half of the Horizon League's total NCAA tournament wins. The league, formed in 1979 as the Midwestern Collegiate Conference, is 24-36 overall.
Staying with Butler, it's the first school to play the Final Four in its hometown. The last was UCLA in 1972. Schools that have played a Final Four in their home state? Here's a list from the AP:
