The 2014 NCAA Final Four line-up for men’s basketball.

The Final Four is possibly the best time for college basketball fans; a reward to make up for epic-failing at their March Madness brackets, in a way.

The teams that are in the Final Four are the Florida Gators, Kentucky Wildcats, UConn Huskies, and the Wisconsin Badgers. The Huskies and Gators will play first, and the following game will be the Badgers and Wildcats, this Saturday, April fifth. The winners of those games will play in the NCAA championship game on Monday, April seventh.

I believe for the first game between Florida and UConn, that UConn will pull off the upset. However I think the game will come down to the buzzer like their game earlier in the season on December second. Florida’s defense is one of the best in the country but I think senior guard Shabazz Napier is too much of a threat on the offensive end.

I am pretty confident for the Wisconsin and Kentucky game that powerhouse Wisconsin will walk away with the win. Wisconsin, as a whole team, can shoot the three well, but the charge as it has been throughout the season is junior forward Frank Kaminsky.

As you can see the teams that I think are going to be in the national championship are Wisconsin and UConn. I think Wisconsin will win, because Kaminsky is just a beast who can rebound and score in the post and shoot from all over the floor. Unless something crazy happens Saturday, that’s my call–Badgers to take it all.  Feel free to disagree with me in the comment section below.
