The Final Four will be at Houston’s NRG Stadium on April 1 and 3.

Some of the news and talking points between now and the Final Four will be whether the Kansas Jayhawks become the first repeat champion in men’s college basketball since Florida in 2006-07? And if North Carolina will be a favorite to get back to the Final Four after it returns 4 starters — Leaky Black, Caleb Love, R.J. Davis and Armando Bacot — for Hubert Davis.

The Heels move up to No. 2 overall in this bracket, trailing only Kentucky on the seed list. Ironically, the two programs ended last season tied for second in all-time wins (2,353) behind reigning national champion Kansas.
