Auburn goes to the Final Four as a five-seed and knocks off the three winningest hoops programs in college history to get there:
Kentucky, Kansas and UNC. Wow.

If Duke wins, it would be the first all-South Final Four since 1983 (NC State, Houston, Georgia, Louisville).
great state

What a great Final Four this will be. Three new-or-basically-new fanbases living it up, plus a solid Michigan State program.

This will be the first Final Four since 2007 with no schools from North Carolina, Kentucky or Kansas.

Got have him...if UVA’s big 3 can get it going at the same time...I’d bet the house on UVA winning it all. 

And that’s exactly what happened in the 2nd half and overtime last night.  So thankful and satisfied today!  From a pipe dream to reality.

@Bearcat Bob

My families (both growing up and current) have had an unusual Tech-UVA mindset.  Different members of the family had their favorite school but never pulled against the other team.  I'm a Hokie first but still pull for the Hoos as they represent the Commonwealth and Conference.

My earliest memory of college basketball was watching the '76 ACC Tourney with my dad.  I remember us being so excited about UVA's unlikely run which ended with Virginia shocking the tobacco road elites by claiming the title. That winter I pretended to be Wally Walker with a makeshift nerf hoop in my house.  The Ralph years were particularly special but the title proved elusive .  We all watched more special teams come and go but a natty seemed agonizingly out of reach.  And now, 43 years after a young Terry Holland won UVA's first ACC Tourney, Tony Bennett has now brought home the ultimate trophy.

Congratulations, Hoos fans!
