Tenth-seeded Davidson had their chance to become this year's Final Four surprise, but they fell two points shy to Kansas, 59-57. The de facto Cinderella of the team, the tiny school from Charlotte, was the only team who came remotely close to winning a game in the Round of Eight. Louisville, Xavier, and Texas all went down with about as much resistance as the wind emanating from a referee's whistle when a UCLA player charges into a defender. (Which is none. Get it?)
But on the other side, most of the tournament games have been a sudden cure for insomnia, with the close ones coming in the first few rounds. Perhaps this means that four great teams, when in the same venue, will produce three equally amazing games. And if you were cheering for one of the Duke brothers to win that one-dollar bet in Trading Spaces, then this year's Final Four might be right up your alley.
