Final Four schedule 2014 news has the teams set for the college basketball title. The first two games in the 2014 Final Four schedule will take place on Saturday (April 5), with the championship game set for the following Monday (April 7). Two huge surprises took place in the NCAA Tournament over the weekend, ending with the Kentucky Wildcats beating the Michigan Wolverines to continue an improbable run through the Midwest Region on Sunday (March 30). The team knocked off No. 1 Wichita State, No. 2 Michigan, No. 4 Louisville and No. 9 Kansas State in their four games.

Draft Prospects Under The Radar

In the other three games that led to this point, Connecticut beat Michigan State, Florida beat Dayton, and Wisconsin beat Arizona. The Huskies could be referred to as the other Cinderella story left in the tournament as they have had a rough route as well. They beat No. 10 Saint Joseph's, No. 2 Villanova, No. 3 Iowa State, and then No. 4 Michigan State in successive games coming out of the East Region. Now the No. 7 seed will try to take down the top team in the country next weekend. Florida did the expected by beating all opponents by at least 10 points each and Wisconsin got there by upsetting the top seeded Arizona Wildcats in the West Region.

The 2014 Final Four schedule begins on April 5 with Florida vs. Connecticut at 6:09 p.m. ET. It is then immediately followed by Wisconsin vs. Kentucky at about 8:49 p.m. ET. Both games are set to be broadcast live on TBS and the two games will decide the two schools that play for the college basketball championship on Monday night (April 7). Currently the oddsmakers have the Gators as 6 1/2 point favorites in their game and the Wildcats as two point favorites in their game to get to that title night.
