We’re just one win away from the Final Four in the 2020 mock NCAA Tournament. Which of these NCAA Basketball teams move on?
Around this time, we’d normally have the Final Four of the 2020 NCAA Tournament, featuring four NCAA Basketball teams who have won their respective regions. Of course, we all know why that isn’t happening at this point.
But still, many hoops fans are still looking for ways to remain connected with the game, even without it being played live. For those who don’t know, we here at Busting Brackets have been conducting a mock exercise of what the tournament would’ve looked like.
Using Lukas Harkins’ own projected field of 68 teams, our great staff of contributors has been voting (in groups of 3) for each game, from the “First Four”, Round of 64, Round and 32 and most recently, the Sweet 16 matchups. Whoever gets at least two of the three votes, moves on to the next round.
After a crazy round of selections, including the loss of our first No. 1 seed, we’re at the Elite Eight. Here are the final eight teams in the running for the Busting Brackets’ 2020 national championship:
South Region: 1) Kansas Jayhawks vs 6) Virginia Cavaliers
West Region: 1) Gonzaga Bulldogs vs 2) San Diego State Aztecs
Midwest Region: 4) Kentucky Wildcats vs 6) Penn State Nittany Lions
East Region: 1) Dayton Flyers vs 3) Michigan State Spartans
We have a trio of mid-major programs, a pair of 6 seeds and the reigning national champion Virginia Cavaliers still remaining in the NCAA Tournament. But which teams will move on to the Final Four? Check out our writers’ outlook and predictions for each game.
