Final Four includes three powerhouses and one Cinderella — March Madness

Kansas State guard Kamau Stokes and teammates celebrate after defeating Kentucky 61-58 early Friday in Atlanta

With AP Photos.Villanova is headed back to the Final Four for the second time in three years. He says getting a spot in the National Championship spot is "totally doable". Then you have Kansas State who is seeded number 9 and has played in the Tournament without their best player Dean Wade. No. 2 Duke in San Antonio, and their emerging as the team to beat in this NCAA Tournament.

The 2018 NCAA Tournament marks the first time the Beavers and Ducks have both earned Elite Eight berths in the same season.

"This tournament's a insane tournament". "We don't get caught up in the win streak that we're on", guard Charles Matthews said. Kansas beat Duke in OT 85-81 Sunday evening in arguably the game of the year so far. "I think they're ready for it". I have great respect for the Nuns. "So to be able to share that moment with him was actually real fun". Eric Paschall finished with 12 points and a career-high 14 rebounds.

The Kansas-Villanova matchup is sure to re-ignite calls for some form of reseeding heading into the Final Four. Marina Mabrey, who shined with 25 points and nine assists against Texas A&M, will try to stay hot from outside after making seven 3-pointers for a Notre Dame tournament record.

Kansas and Duke traded barbs in an electrifying affair to close out the weekend's March Madness schedule.

The teams matched each other with 33 percent shooting from the floor - Villanova's lowest since 2015- and the Wildcats made just 4 of 24 from beyond the arc.

It's quite a feat considering three of those teams faced at least some bubble uncertainty in the final month of the regular season.

"I think a year ago we had no idea what to expect", Ducks guard Sabrina Ionescu said. A lot of people-not just sports fans-fill out brackets with the hope they pick as many games correctly as possible. Our guys take pride in that. I tell them we are good enough. "They know they're going to have to go the distance (with a short bench)". After opening a 20-point lead early in the second half, the Jayhawks held off Clemson by four in the Sweet 16.

"I really feel that our team is confident".

Newman's most important shot came with 1:49 remaining in overtime, as he handed Kansas a three-point advantage with a three-point basket.

It seems when Kennan Evans is on, so is Texas Tech. Despite a team known for it's defense, Villanova figured out how to out play Texas Tech by keeping the ball moving.

Beard compared them to the Showtime Los Angeles Lakers that played across the way in the old Boston Garden.

"They've had some losing seasons in the past", said Myhres. "He's a multi-dimensional player. I think his toughness and intangibles. are at the top of that list".
