Even if your bracket was busted, say, about the third game of the tournament and you don’t still have a dog in the hunt, there’s a good chance you’ll be checking out the 2017 NCAA men’s basketball Final Four and championship games Saturday and Monday.
This year, it’s a coast-to-coast affair, the Final Four featuring teams from two distinct regions of the U.S.: South Carolina and North Carolina from the lower East Coast, and Oregon and Gonzaga from the Pacific Northwest. For the next few days, the nation’s great midsection really is pretty much flyover country.
The Final Four semifinal games are Saturday, and the championship game is scheduled for Monday. Here are the details.
