March Madness is the optimal time of the year for any college basketball fan. With its high stake games and its close down to the wire games, it’s hard not to love all the madness that comes with this tournament. However, some big time moments have happened so far leading up to The Final Four, such as eight seed South Carolina’s 77-70 victory over fourth seed Florida in the Elite Eight to earn themselves the programs first ever Final Four appearance, as well as Gonzaga’s first ever appearance in The Final Four in program history. Another huge moment to remember inside of this year’s NCAA March Madness tournament was number 11 seated Xavier’s victory over number two seed Arizona by a score of 71 to 73. A tournament with big moments is one that has had all of its viewers glued to their seats as they watch.

The 2017 men’s Final Four will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Phoenix, Arizona April 1, with the final of the tournament on April 3. A day to mark on your calendars, everyone will be watching these four teams what do you get out for two final spots in the 2017 NCAA national championship. The four teams that have qualified for the final four are Oregon, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Gonzaga. My personal favorite to win the whole thing is Gonzaga; my predictions go as follows.

Gonzaga Vs South Carolina- Gonzaga wins by a score of 75-70

I chose this score because Gonzaga is the team I chose win it all in my bracket, so naturally I have to root for them in this matchup.

Oregon Vs North Carolina- Oregon wins by a score of 60-62

Oregon has been full of surprises in the tournament so far, and I believe that they can pull this one off to beat the highly respected North Carolina.

The winner of the national championship will be Gonzaga by a score of 84-81

Gonzaga has been one of the most impressive teams in the tournament so far. Gonzaga coming into the tournament had just ended their 21 game winning streak in the regular season to earn them the one seed in their conference. Gonzaga has had little trouble throughout the tournament and will continue to bring home the bacon on April 3rd.
