HELLO HUMANS. TOMORROW IS THE FINAL FOUR. VIRGINIA PLAYS AUBURN IN THE PROGRAM’S FIRST FINAL FOUR SINCE 1984. YES, I AM INTERNET YELLING, YES, I AM THIS EXCITED.
Anyways, March Madness is coming to an end. To prepare you for the final weekend, we brought you the complete preview of Auburn vs. Virginia, a look at Mamadi Diakite’s postseason success, a look at Tony Bennett and the team’s arrival in Minneapolis and much more on the site. Here’s what’s happening around the corner ahead of Saturday’s 6 p.m. tip.
