Sixers Lose Second Straight Game...Falling to Kings

Virginia Commonwealth University Knocks Off Kansas To Get to Final Four

Looks like there is another George Mason this year folks and that team is VCU. #11 seed Virginia Commonwealth has rolled through the tournament by pulling off 4 straight victories (they are on a 13-game winning streak) to make it to the Final Four in Houston. Yesterday VCU knocked off Kansas 71-61 and dominated them virtually the entire game. And, they have been winning their games in convincing fashion - winning all 4 tournament games by double digits. VCU coach Shaka Smart has become a household name in the matter of ten days. VCU will take on Butler in the Final Four. Butler, like VCU was another sleeper despite making it all the way to the championship game against Duke last year. Unless you filled out two dozen NCAA Tournament brackets you probably didn't even come close to getting these teams right. Not one #1 or #2 seed made the Final Four. #3 seed UCONN will take on #4 seed Kentucky in the Final Four this weekend.
