2013 NCAA Final Four Set & Headed for Atlanta
Hot Matchups set for 2013 Final Four in Atlanta
A Cinderella contender is still dancing, the overall No. 1 seed overcame injury and adversity to assert its will, and two of the biggest names in the recent history of the game dominated in their Elite Eight matchups to round out the field for the 2013 NCAA Final Four in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome starting Saturday, April 6. The NCAA Basketball Tournament Bracket in 2013 only saw one No. 1 seed advance into the Elite Eight and plenty of other upsets along the way. In the Midwest Regional, hosted in Indianapolis, all three games were decisive, double-digit victories, including the regional final pitting Louisville versus Duke. Up only by two at halftime, Rick Pitino’s Cardinals won the second half by 20 to eliminate the Blue Devils. In Los Angeles’ West Regional, Wichita State emerged as Louisville’s opponent by defeating La Salle and then recently-clutch Ohio State.
The East Regional in Washington, DC, saw two more instances of the vaunted Syracuse Orange 2-3 zone shutting down capable opponents as they advanced to the NCAA Final Four 2013, representing the Big East one final time before heading to the ACC next season. Their Elite Eight Matchup against Marquette proved to be a bonus last game between two Big East rivals before the league is re-engineered for next year. The South Regional took place in Arlington, TX, and Michigan dispatched of No. 1 seed Kansas before knocking out a surging Florida in the Elite Eight.

Louisville – Wichita State 2013 Final Four Tickets
While the other 2013 Final Four pairing features two teams that already knocked out the No. 1 seed in their region, Wichita State is the only Final Four team that will definitely have to beat another No 1 on the way to an NCAA Basketball Championship. Louisville will try to maintain focus after Kevin Ware broke his leg in the regional final. The team’s tenacious defense and roster depth will continue to be their greatest assets as they attempt to live up to their ranking as the top overall seed in the 2013 NCAA Basketball Tournament.

Michigan – Syracuse Final Four 2013 Tickets
Many people doubted these two teams would make it to the 2013 Sweet Sixteen, let alone the Final Four. But Michigan and its stalwart guard play have overcome VCU, Kansas and a strong Florida team to punch its ticket to the Final Four in Atlanta. Syracuse, meanwhile, overcame late-season poor offensive performances to defeat Montana, the upstart Cal Bears, and the No. 1 seed Indiana Hoosiers before then dispatching Big East rival Marquette. Jim Boeheim and his zone defense will now attempt to continue confusing the opposition en route to a second national title.
