And then there were four.

The field of 68 teams that entered the NCAA Tournament has been whittled down to the Final Four: No. 1 seed Kansas, No. 2 Villanova, No. 2 Duke and No. 8 North Carolina.

Kansas, which dominated Miami in the Elite Eight, will take on Villanova, who will be without starting guard Justin Moore after he suffered a torn Achilles tendon late in the Wildcats’ Elite Eight win against Houston.

The second game on the lineup features a blockbuster showdown between Duke and North Carolina, the first time the archrivals have ever played against each other in the Final Four. It will also mark an unexpected rematch after North Carolina spoiled Mike Krzyzewski’s home finale in a 94-81 win at Cameron Indoor Stadium on March 5.

Coach Krzyzewski has now led Duke to 13 Final Four appearances, the most in NCAA men’s tournament history. Can Duke extend Coach K’s farewell tour with a trip to the national championship?
