2022 Women’s and Men’s NCAA March Madness Highlights

After being canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19 and last year’s games having only sparse crowds, Men’s and Women’s March Madness is running at full capacity and ready to kick off the final four matchups. 

The final four teams for the 2022 Women’s Basketball March Madness have been determined and announced Monday night. The lineup includes the Connecticut Huskies, the Louisville Cardinals, the South Carolina Gamecocks, and the Stanford Cardinal. 

Guided by Coach Kay Yow, North Carolina State has been trying to make it to the tournament for 24 years. North Carolina State secured their spot in the tournament after Saturday night’s game, where they struggled a bit against Notre Dame, who was leading up until the fourth quarter. If they don’t win this year’s tournament, they will be tied for second place.

On the other hand, the Cardinals team entered the tournament with high hopes, given that they plummeted the Wolverines in Louisville in December. The Cardinal’s most crucial weapon is Van Lilith. Lilith scored twenty-three points over Tennessee on Saturday. She will push the Cardinals to their first national semifinal since 2018. 

The final four teams for the 2022 Men’s Basketball March Madness have also been announced Monday night. The final four teams include; Duke University, North Carolina State, Kansas, and Villanova. All teams seemingly have the same colors making fans coin the term “blue-blooded” and “Blue-blooded streak.” They have secured seven of the fourteen national championships making the matchup game a powerhouse of a game no matter the winner. Three of the highest seeds (Arizona, Baylor, and Gonzaga) were eliminated and thus won’t be playing any further. 

The men’s matchup will be held at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, while the women’s matchup will be held at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, this weekend. The matchups will be live on TBS and ESPN for TV watchers but can also be viewed on the NCAA website for free. The Broadcasting times are all Eastern Time, with the Men’s National Championship being held at 9 p.m. ET and the Women’s National Championship being held at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. ET.
