article imageNCAA: And then there were four

Indianapolis - The national collegiate championship semi-finals are set after a slate of games on Saturday and Sunday. One number one seed remains as Duke beat Baylor.
Duke, West Virgina, Butler, and Michigan State will be headed to Indianapolis to be in the Final Four.
Going in to Saturday there were two number one seeds left in the tournament with Kentucky and Duke. That number was quickly cut in half as number two seed West Virginia beat number one seed Kentucky Saturday evening. The game was close going in to the final minutes but West Virgina pulled out the victory winning 73-66 to win the East bracket and punch their ticket into the Final Four.
The other game played on Saturday was in the West as number five seed Butler knocked off number two seed Kansas State 63-56. Butler will return home to Indianapolis were they will be only three miles from their home stadium.
Sunday started off with a well contested game as number five seed Michigan State beat sixth seeded Tennessee to win the Midwest region. Tennessee could not make the desperation half court shot to win the game.
Duke tried to be the only one seed left in the tournament as they played number three seeded Baylor in the South bracket finals. Baylor held the lead most of the game but Duke came back late and shut any rumblings up that they did not deserve to be a one seed as they beat Baylor 78-71.
A pair of five seeds in Butler and Michigan State will play for a chance to be in the National Championship at 6:07 ET on April 3 against the winner of Duke and West Virgina which will take place at 8:47 ET.
