Who Is In The Final Four 2023? More Know For March Madness Semifinal Games

Final Four 2023 – Only four teams are left standing in the NCAA tournament.

March Madness has been living up to its name in the 2023 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament.

While the tournament usually sees early upsets, the top teams in the country tend to make it to the later rounds.

However, this year’s tournament has been different. For the first time ever, all the No. 1 seeds were eliminated before the Elite Eight, and almost all the No. 2 seeds were gone as well. The remaining teams include only one with a national championship under their belt (No. 4 UConn) and three teams that have never made it to the Final Four (No. 5 Miami, No. 5 San Diego State, and No. 9 Florida Atlantic).

The madness isn’t over yet, as there is still one game left to determine the national champion. The teams left are a five- or nine-seed, and no national champion has ever come from one of those seeds. Could this year’s tournament make history once again?

If you want to stay up-to-date on the Final Four in 2023, including the matchups, TV information, and more, here’s all you need to know.

Who is in the Final Four in 2023?

The Final Four teams for the 2023 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament are set. The four teams that will be competing for the national championship are Florida Atlantic (East), UConn (West), San Diego State (South), and Miami (Midwest).

Florida Atlantic, the biggest underdog in the Final Four, was the first team to secure their spot in Houston by defeating Kansas State in the East Region. UConn followed suit by continuing their impressive run through the West Region with a dominant 82-54 victory over Gonzaga on Saturday night.

On the following day, San Diego State claimed their spot with a narrow 57-56 win over Creighton, aided by a controversial foul call. The last team to secure their spot in the Final Four was Miami, who overcame the Longhorns in an 88-81 win on Sunday, powered by a second-half surge.

How many times has Florida Atlantic been to the Final Four?

The Owls has not had much success in the March Madness tournament prior to the 2023 NCAA Tournament. The Owls had only qualified for the tournament once before, in 2002, as part of the Atlantic Sun Conference. They had been placed as a 15-seed in the South region, and unfortunately were defeated 86-78 by the No. 2 seed, Alabama.

Although the Crimson Tide advanced to the next round, their run in the tournament was short-lived as they were defeated by No. 10 Kent State in the following round.
