The event that every sports fan has been waiting for is here. Full of surprises, good and bad, March Madness is upon us. Talk of brackets, predictions, final four, and much more has taken over the sports world. The NCAA website updated its brackets, score recaps, key stats, and the final four team’s profiles. The final four teams are South Carolina, Oregon, North Carolina and Gonzaga.

Students have some predictions of their own.

Bob Jones senior Abby Bates said, “This tournament has been absolutely insane, but I’m predicting that the championship will be between Gonzaga and North Carolina. Gonzaga should win by five probably, at least I hope so.”

Though Abby seems sure Gonzaga will win, Sara Jones said, “I was really surprised when I saw the final four, but ultimately I think North Carolina will end up as the National Champion. Even though they’re not the popular prediction, I think they could really pull through this year, I don’t want to jinx myself, though!”

If you want to get in on all the action, the final four will be playing this Saturday. Gonzaga and South Carolina will play in Phoenix at 6:09 p.m., and you can catch the game on CBS. Oregon and North Carolina will also play in Phoenix at 8:49 p.m. on CBS.

The two finalists will play Monday, April 3rd in Phoenix at 9:00 p.m.
