Before we look forward to Saturday's Final Four matchups, let's take a look back at how the four survivors made it to the promised land in the NCAA Tournament. It's a historic bracket this year as a grand total of zero No. 1 seeds advanced to the Final Four as a No. 8 and No. 11 seed broke through to crash the major conference party. It's been a nightmare for bracket predictions, but a thrilling ride as the NCAA Tournament was as unpredictable as ever this year.
