The Final Four is set for this weekend in Indianapolis.  Three number ones seeds and a number 7 are still dancing after this weekends Sweet 16 and Elite Eight games.  The teams are Kentucky, Wisconsin, Duke and Michigan State. 

In the first game South Region champ Duke will play the East Region champ Michigan State, the number 7 seed.  Duke has had a relatively easy path to the Final Four.  They had a scare from Utah and Gonzaga hung with them but they were able to come out on top.  Duke is averaging just over 70 points per game in the tournament.

It's been a tougher road for the Michigan State Spartan's who have had battle after battle but have found ways to win  They have beaten the 2 3 and 4 seed to get to Indianapolis.  They have averaged 67 points a game but put 76 on a very good Louisville team to ensure a date with Duke.

On the other side of the bracket the top seed Wisconsin Badgers knocked off #2 Arizona to win the West Region.  They will face Kentucky, the top seed from the Midwest region who defeated Notre Dame to punch their ticket to the Final Four.

Wisconsin had four tough games but came out on top.  They scored 80 points per game on their way to the West Region Championship.  Now they have the unwanted task of playing maybe the best college basketball team ever in 38-0 Kentucky. The Wildcats got a scare from Notre Dame but kept their poise and with two last second free throws they are on their way to Indianapolis.  Kentucky has averaged 72 points a game in this tournament. 

So the stage is set for the 2015 Final Four in Indianapolis.  Many questions will be answered but the most important one is who will be cutting down the nets next Monday night?
