2011 Final Four:Kentucky vs. Connecticut and
VCU vs. ButlerMarch 30, 2009 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas is the site of this year's Final Four. Kentucky, Connecticut, Butler and VCU have all emerge as the best in their respective division bracket. All of the No.1 seed have been eliminated and these four teams are primed for a spot in the National Championship.

The first match will feature the 11th seed VCU Rams against the 8th seed Butler Bulldogs. The Rams are this year's "Cinderella team"; no one expected them to reach the Final Four after being bracketed in the Southwest. They overcome the odds by beating Georgetown, Purdue, Florida St and top seed Kansas.

Meanwhile, the Butler Bulldogs are in their prime to advance in the National Championship since they are in same position last year but were denied by Duke. The Bulldogs have the veteran players and championship experience they need to topple the Rams.

The second match will feature the return of two powerhouse team in college basketball supremacy. The Kentucky Wildcats faces the Connecticut Huskies. These two teams seek to re-establish their top college basketball programs that were in disarray for the past few years.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed both Butler and Kentucky as a 2.5-point favorite to beat VCU and Connecticut. However, we witnessed unscripted turn of events on how these four teams played and it only shows that no lead is safe until the final buzzer rings.
