Final Four Finishers

Mar 28, 2011

The Final Four finishers are set. #3 Uconn Huskies, #4 Kentucky Wildcats, #8 Butler Bulldogs, and the… #11 VCU Rams??? Wha?!?!?! The 2011 Final Four Basketball Championship in Houston, Texas will be the first time in NCAA history that no #1 or #2 team has qualified.


Second Cinderella

If you thought the Butler Bulldogs were the Cinderella team to make the Final Four… you were right… but you were also wrong. The Bulldogs have made it to the Final Four, BUT they’re actually the favorites against the real Cinderella’s… the Rams from Virginia Commonwealth University.


Ram it!Ram it!

Just like the real poor housekeeper Cinderella winning the Prince’s hand in marriage, the 11th seeded VCU Rams beat the #1 Kansas Jayhawks to get to the Semi-Finals. It was the biggest upset since #11 George Mason made it to the Final Four in 2006. Do you think VCU can win two more games to be crowned the lowest ranked team to have ever won a NCAA championship?


The Butler Did It

VCU is scheduled to play the Butler Bulldogs, one of the most exciting basketball teams of all time. The Bulldogs are known for dramatic finishes. They never take the lead and they wait until the very end of the game to make a dramatic shot at the buzzer to pull in front. That’s exactly what Butler’s Shelvin Mack did when he hit a 3-pointer with 1:21 left in overtime against Florida in the Elite Eight Quaterfinals.


Semi-Final on the Side

Wild Cats!Wild Cats!

With all the underdog excitement in the one semi-final game, everyone has forgotten about the other semi-final game between the UConn Huskies and Kentucky Wildcats. Kentucky’s swarming defense shut down Jared Sullinger and the Ohio State Buckeyes, the big favorites to win the National title. Will it be enough to keep pace with the Huskies who have won 9 straight victories in just 19 days?


Serious Schedule

Looking to catch all the action this weekend? Here is a schedule of the final 3 games to be played in Houston Texas:


  • April 2nd - 6pm Eastern – VCU vs Butler
  • April 2nd – 9pm Eastern – Uconn vs Kentucky
  • April 4th - 9pm Eastern – Championship Final
