NCAA Tournament Bracket Has Half of Final Four Set After UConn, Butler Pull Off Thrilling Wins

Thanks to a couple of late, dramatic wins on Sunday night, we now know half of the Final Four — two teams that not many people would have predicted to be here once the season began.

Butler returned to the Final Four just one year after making a Cinderella run all the way to the national championship. This year's repeat Final Four performance may be even more impressive, though, as the Bulldogs were an 8-seed heading into this year's dance, while last year they were a No. 5.

UConn started the season unranked before shooting up the rankings early on, falling back some during the middle of the season and now riding a hot streak that includes five wins in five nights during the Big East tournament before racking up four wins in the tournament to get to the national semifinals.

Check out the updated bracket below.
