Loyola basketball team heads to San Antonio for Final Four — March Madness

Udoka Azubuike talks about his mom potentially flying to the Final Four

MI coach John Beilein, whose team will face Moser's 11th-seeded Ramblers in Saturday's first game, is making his second Final Four appearance with the Wolverines.

Kansas is definitely on a roll and they are so fun to watch, so athletic, so they'll beat Villanova 69-62 in another close one.

Self said he thinks San Antonio is "the best" venue for the Final Four.

- 1. National championship under Wright in 2016. The 7-footer averaged an efficient 13 points and 7 rebounds this season but becomes a liability when other teams spread the floor out, forcing Kansas to play their own small-ball lineup. Their school hadn't even made the tournament since Patrick Ewing's Hoyas knocked them out in the 1985 Sweet 16.

That Final Four also was held in San Antonio, where KU faces Villanova Saturday night. After disposing of Penn State 76-60 in the first round, the Jayhawks have won their next three games all by four points, including a 85-81 win over number two seed Duke in the Elite Eight. And if they continue playing the way they do, they just might win their first national title since 2008.

UConn, Louisville, Mississippi State and Notre Dame are headed to Columbus, Ohio, marking the fourth time in tournament history that four No. 1 seeds made it to the national semifinals. "We certainly played to it here of late", he said. It's something we have talked about as a team, that we've played some of the best teams in the Big 12 and now we're getting the best team in the Big 12 so you know it's going to be tougher. It will be a tight one and will come down to whose star players are on that night, but when the dust settles, the Kansas Jayhawks will be facing MI in the National Championship. But who are the Villanova Wildcats? .

Kansas U.S. Rep Kevin Yoder had been working with the Nigerian consulate to obtain the visa for Azubuike's mother, as first reported by Rustin Dodd of The Athletic. The defensive effort in the third quarter was as good as we have seen in the tournament, with the Irish outscoring the Ducks 21-9. "But it is, it's a lot of the same questions over and over and over and over again, and you've just got to do it and do it the right way", Beilein said.

"We want to win the game, but is winning the game more important than to make sure there's not a little distraction for Doke?"

Indeed, this group of Jayhawks overcame its share of adversity on the way to winning a record-setting 14th consecutive Big 12 title, the conference tournament and the Midwest Region final. First-team All American Devonte Graham has stepped up big in the leadership department to accompany skills that few guards in America can match. He scored a career-high 32 points in the Elite Eight win against Duke.

Villanova, meanwhile, is arguably the favorite going into the Final Four.

"If you get (to the Final Four), you realize more how hard it is".

"For Doke to be able to share his experience at the Final Four with his mom is something neither of them will ever forget", KU Athletics Director Sheahon Zenger said in a news release. "I can't allow him to have a big offensive rebounding night against us on game day". But I do think it enhances it. All five experts like the victor of Kansas-Villanova to be the champ. The previous three - LSU (1986), George Mason (2006) and VCU (2011) have all lost in the national semifinal.
