Final Four: Who Will Go to the National Championship Game?

posted by Anne Erickson -

If there's one thing that's always predictable about the NCAA men's basketball tournament, it's that the results are always unpredictable.

Hardly anybody had Loyola pegged to make it to the Final Four. Well, okay, Sister Jean did. 

The rest of the 2018 Final Four is a bit more obvious: No. 1-seeds Villanova and Kansas, plus No. 3-seed Michigan. 

So, who will make it to the final championship game? 

Sports Illustrated's Michael Beller studied the teams and things Michigan and Villanova will make it through. His score predictions are Michigan 68, Loyola 60 and Villanova 87, Kansas 84.

Either way, the Final Four games are going to be competitive and close.

"I don’t think we’re going to get stuck with one of those Final Four blowouts this year," Beller writes.

My team, the Spartans, didn't make it in this year. But I'm still stoked to watch this weekend. Happy March Madness...and Easter! XO
