1. Rivalry, but make it Final. This year’s Final Four will feature one of the greatest rivalries in men’s basketball – UNC vs. Duke. Believe it or not, it’ll be the first time the programs have EVER faced off in the NCAA Tournament!
  2. It just wouldn’t be the Final Four without UConn’s Women’s Team. No REALLY! The Huskies are back in the Final Four yet again, continuing a pretty impressive streak. This Friday will mark the program’s record 14th straight (!!!) trip to the Final Four!
  3. Have no fear, the reigning champs are here! This year’s Final Four will in fact feature the winner of last year’s Women’s Tourney – Stanford. If they advance, they’ll have the chance to become just the fourth women’s program to win consecutive Championships!
  4. No surprise, the program with the most Final Four appearances will be playing in this year’s Final Four. That honor goes to UNC’s Men’s Team, who’ll be playing in their 21st Final Four!
  5. Cinderella will not be attending the Final Four. In fact, most “Cinderella’s” don’t. The lowest seed to ever make the Final Four in the Men’s Tourney is No. 11, while no lower than No. 9 has ever made it in the Women’s.

I created Fangirl Sports Network as a place for female sports fans to follow their favorite teams with content and coverage that speaks directly to females. It started with one and then eight and now 32 NFL Fangirls and 15 NBA Fangirls.
