To make the Final Four Villanova defeated UNC Asheville, Iowa, Miami and Kansas. The Wildcats are playing for their second NCAA Tournament championship.

To reach the Final Four the Sooners beat CSU Bakersfield, VCU, Texas A&M and Oregon. Oklahoma is gunning for its first NCAA Tournament title. The Sooners lost the title game in both 1947 and 1988.
4. Syracuse – 12 to 1
