NCAA basketball tournament 2016

The 2016  NCAA basketball tournament has reached the final four stage. There has been a hype of Syracuse going to create havoc and possibly wins the coveted NCAA basketball championship.

Upsets have happened before. For example, NC Sate upset of hot favourite Houston 54-52 in the 1983 tournament.  NC Sate was ranked 16th while Houston was ranked 1st in the regular season final poll.

In three to four days, the tournament will be over, and the winner will be known.

Update:  But then, in the semifinal games,  North Carolina and Villanova were too good for the title pretenders Syracuse and Oklahoma, respectively.  And the hype did not materialise.
