With the Final Four of the 2012 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament set to go, the University of Louisville, Ohio State University, the University of Kentucky and Kansas State are all ready for arguably some of the best matchups in college basketball history.
On Saturday, March 24th, the Louisville Cardinals defeated the Florida Gators by a score of 72-68, and Ohio State defeated the Syracuse Orange by a score of 77-70 in what many considered to be a big upset. The following day, the Kentucky Wildcats defeated Baylor 82-70, and the number-one North Carolina Tar Heels fell to number-two Kansas by a final score of 80-67.
Out of the four teams remaining in the tournament, only Kentucky came in a number-one seed, while Ohio State and Kansas were ranked second and Louisville fourth. Just as any other year has been, the 2012 tournament has been filled with upsets, so don’t count out teams like Louisville just yet, as they take on Kentucky on Saturday. Also on Saturday, Ohio State is set to take on Kansas. Both games will take place in New Orleans, at 6:09 and 8:49 respectively. Look for two good match-ups, as four teams look for a spot in the championship game and college basketball history.
