Who would have thought that the biggest scoring margin of the NCAA Tournament would occur in the Final Four? That’s exactly what happened when Villanova beat Oklahoma by 44. It was a record-setting performance, and the Wildcats will face North Carolina in tonight’s title game. For a recap of Saturday’s games and a mini championship review, check out my latest for CBS Local.
Every March, I dream of a perfect bracket. I know that nailing every game in the NCAA Tournament is impossible; I’m talking about correctly picking 15 of the Sweet 16 teams or the entire Final Four. Most years, by the end of the Tourney’s first weekend, I’m hoping I at least get the champion right and finish with a better bracket than my brothers (neither will happen this year).
You know Buddy Hield and the other three-point shooting Sooners. But the one starter who doesn’t shoot jumpers will be key for Oklahoma this weekend. Meet my latest Rising Star, sophomore forward Khadeem Lattin.
