Final Four in Place: It’s Loyola-Chicago and Three Favorites
Villanova, Kansas and Michigan will join the Ramblers in San Antonio.
After two wild weekends of play, the Final Four is in place.
Top seed Villanova is in, as is Kansas. Michigan, a trendy championship pick, will also be taking the floor in Chicago.
Then there’s the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers, the little No. 11 seed that could.
All of the programs have won a national title in the past, with Villanova being the most recent champ with their 2016 victory. It’s been longer for the Ramblers; they won it all in 1963 during the Kennedy administration.
In Vegas, Villanova is favored, followed by Michigan, Kansas and Loyola-Chicago.
Despite the long odds, Les Hunter, a member of Loyola-Chicago’s championship team, believes the Ramblers can get the job done.“
I think they’re the best right now,” Hunter told The Associated Press. “They work so well together. They can play with anybody — anybody — right now.”
