One of the most improbable Final Fours ever has formed at the 2023 NCAA Tournament. This is the 1st Final Four ever that won’t have at least a 3-seed participating.
The Final Four tips off Saturday (Apr. 1) at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, with the national championship scheduled for Monday (Apr. 3) in that same building.
Representing the South Region is the 5-seed San Diego State Aztecs. They’ll play the 9-seed Florida Atlantic Owls, who won the East Regional.
The 4-seed UConn Huskies breezed through the West Regional and are the favorites to win the national title. Connecticut will face the 5-seed Miami Hurricanes, who upset the top-two teams to win the Midwest Regional.
