The NCAA Men's Basketball Championship has become so popular in the United States that it earned a month to call its own, "March Madness". The tournament began in 1939 and only featured eight teams. Before 1975, just one team from each conference could reach the “Big Dance” after winning their conference tournament. The tournament gradually expanded over the years to accommodate the rise of new basketball programs.
In its current format, there are now 68 teams, eight of which play in four games that determine the last few seeds dubbed the "First Four." Bids into the tournament are still decided by the winners of conference championships, but "Selection Sunday" has also become a major event as well. The tournament culminates in the Final Four, which is one of the most-watched events in American sports. The event is usually held at a larger venue like the Mercedes-Benz Superdome or the Georgia Dome and has an atmosphere similar to the Super Bowl. Over the years, the Final Four has seen the rise of new basketball powerhouses and the demise of others, and there's truly nothing like it on the collegiate or professional level. With a yearly rotation that spans many of the country's biggest sporting arenas, there's a good chance that one of America's biggest sporting events could be coming to a city near you in the near future.

2016 Men's Final Four Recap
The 2016 NCAA Tournament looked to be a battle between some of the greatest college basketball programs, and the Final Four represented 4 of College Basketball's greats of the 2015-2016 season. The North Carolina Tar Heels entered the Final Four coming off a 33-7 regular season and maintained a solid defense against the Syracuse Orange. Syracuse was not able to recover from North Carolinas lead made early in the game. The Tar Heels advanced to the Finals with a final score of 83-66 against Syracuse. On the other side of the bracket, the Villanova Wildcats went up against the Oklahoma Sooners in Houston. Josh Hart pulled out some more March magic, leading the Villanova Wildcats team to their fifth Final Four.
2015 Final Four Preview
The 2015 NCAA Tournament looked to be a battle of blue blood college basketball programs, and the Final Four represented 4 of College Basketball's traditional greats. Kentucky entered the Finial Four coming off an undefeated regular season, and look to beat a plucky Wisconsin team for a 2nd straight season. But the Badgers had other ideas, playing behind the hot shooting of star Frank Kaminsky, the Badgers knocked off the undefeated Wildcats and reached the NCAA Tournament finals.
On the other side of the bracket, Tom Izzo pulled out some more March magic, leading a low seeded Michigan State team back to yet another Final Four. The Spartans deep run was ended by Coach K and the Duke Blue Devils. In a new story for Duke, the Blue Devils relied on a bevy of Freshmen to push them into the Final Four and past Michigan State.
2013 Final Four Preview
The 2013 Final Four is set and has destroyed brackets all over the nation as the #9 Wichita State Shockers lived up to their name joining Louisville, Michigan, and Syracuse as the final teams left in the NCAA Tournament. The last time Michigan was preparing for some final four play came in '93 when they were featuring one of the premier rosters in college basketball with the Fab Five. Louisville entered the tournament as a favorite and remained so maneuvering through a bracket that failed to provide the least bit of competition for the Cardinals. The Orange held up their #4 seeding beating out some of the top teams in the East including Indiana and Marquette in the regional's. Now with a week to rest and prepare the remaining four have arrived at the final stop of the 2013 NCAA Tournament with high hopes of being the last team standing.
2012 Final Four Preview
There’s no room for Cinderella teams in this year’s Final Four, as basketball powerhouses dominated the NCAA tournament to secure their spots in New Orleans. Kentucky, Kansas, Louisville and Ohio State all clinched a berth in the big dance, and these teams are no strangers to each other.
Kentucky takes on Louisville, a rematch of a 69-62 Wildcat win over the Cardinals earlier this season and Louisville coach Rick Pitino would like nothing more than to beat his old squad on the way to a National Championship. The Cardinals beat No. 1 seed Michigan State in the Sweet 16 and Florida in the Elite 8 while Kentucky bulldozed its way through Indiana and Baylor to set up the rematch. The Wildcats have won every game by double digits and is the favorite to win it all, so Louisville will have its hands full.
On the other side of the bracket sits a matchup of two No. 2 seeds in the Jayhawks and Buckeyes, who also faced off earlier in the season with Kansas coming out on top 78-67. Ohio State was missing its 6’9 star Jared Sullinger, who was dealing with back spasms and will be a different team this time around. Ohio State took care of Cincinnati in the Sweet Sixteen before knocking out No. 1 seed Syracuse in the Elite 8, with Kansas beating down perennial powerhouse North Carolina by 13 to qualify for the battle in the Big Easy.
2011 Final Four Preview
This year’s edition of college basketball’s biggest stage comes in two flavors: Underdog and Legacy. On one side of the bracket you have the awe-inspiring Virginia Commonwealth University Rams, who were widely scoffed at by TV analysts when they were included in the tournament and made a run from the First Four set of games to the Final Four (at 820-1 odds). They beat Purdue by 18 and knocked off the Southwest 1 seed Kansas by ten in what many are calling the biggest upset in tournament history.
Not as improbable, but as amazing, is their competition Saturday night in the Butler Bulldogs. Last year’s Cinderella team came within a few inches of an upset of Duke in the 2010 championship game. Most thought they would make it back to the tournament, but few envisioned a return to the Final Four. Other than the ’90-’91 UNLV Running Rebels, no other mid-major school has gone to back-to-back championship semi-finals. If there’s anything wrong with this match-up, it’s this: the seeding didn’t allow for these teams to take on the teams from the other side of the bracket. Instead, we will see at least one team in the Championship game that will be an underdog to a team that will surely be favored, but not by much.
That’s because the other teams are legacies: Connecticut and Kentucky have nine titles between them and are always in the conversation when talking about who’s going to the Final Four. Except this time, they didn’t do it as a number one or two seed, but as a four (Kentucky) and three (Connecticut). That has meant more of a struggle for the teams to get to Houston, especially on the Kentucky side where they had to knock off the number one overall seed in Ohio State and North Carolina over two days.
Connecticut’s Kemba Walker has carried his team through nine wins in 18 days, a feat that saw them win the Big East tournament and carry that momentum into Houston. As Jim Calhoun goes for his third title as Connecticut head coach, you can imagine a Huskies win will allow the players, coaches, school and entire state to finally breathe a sigh of relief.
2010 Final Four Preview
The 2010 Men's NCAA Final Four will be played April 3rd & 5th at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. The 2010 Final Four will be the first Final Four held at Lucas Oil Stadium, but the 5th time the city of Indianapolis has hosted the college basketball championship. Indy's RCA Dome hosted Final Four's in 1991, 1997, 2000 and 2006 - and the Final Four will return to Lucas Oil Stadium in 2015. So Indianapolis has a rich history as host city of the NCAA Final Four, which should help to make the 2010 Final Four even more special. The 2010 NCAA Final Four will match up the 4 winners of the 2010 NCAA Tournament Regional Finals: East, Midwest, South & West. The 4 teams that advance to the Final Four will play for the right to be crowned as champions of college basketball in 2010.
