2018 Final Four bracket for the March Madness NCAA tournament

final four bracket

Contrary to some thinking, the Final Four refers to the remaining four teams not the four games (eight teams).

Everything comes down to this next weekend as the field of nearly-seventy teams when March Madness started has come down to just four teams — two #1 seeds that avoided upsets in the Kansas Jayhawks and the Villanova Wildcats, a #3 seed that found their offense and relied on defense in the Michigan Wolverines, and #11 seed Loyola-Chicago Ramblers and their lucky charm Sister Jean trying to advance to a round an eleven-ranked teams has never gone. A true Cinderella story if we’ve seen one.

With the last four teams also comes a trimmed-down bracket for the Final 4. Not sure how many fans out there still are looking for printable brackets at this stage of the game, but if there are those obsessive-compulsive people that require a clean bracket without the distractions of 64 other teams cluttering things up, we aim to provide that.

March Madness Remaining Schedule: The Final 4 for 2018

Final Four Schedule for 2018 March Madness
Round Teams Where Date Time
Final Four Michigan vs. Loyola-Chicago San Antonio March 31 6:09 PM EST
Final Four Kansas vs. Villanova San Antonio March 31 8:49 PM EST
NCAA championship TBD San Antonio April 2 9:20 PM EST

The two teams that win their games advance from the Final Four onto the the NCAA Championship game (or if you wanna get crazy with the names then… the Terrific Two? Ugh, that’s terrible). The two teams will have the next day off after their semi-finals game before the finals will be played on Monday, April 2nd, 2018.

In terms of locations, it’s the last destination that teams will have to fly to. After games last weekend in Los Angeles, Boston, Omaha, Atlanta and a slew of locations two weekends ago, including Detroit, Wichita, Dallas, Nashville and Boise among others, the remaining teams converge in San Antonio for at least one more game, hopefully two. The 2018 edition of March Madness comes to an end in Texas where three of the four teams go home disappointed.

Final Four Brackets: Printable in PDF, Blank

As we mentioned above, we have the Final Four bracket needs covered. We also created that four team bracket and published in three different formats that are printable for your convenience depending on your preference. So, get your printer-friendly bracket in a Microsoft Word document (who does that?), the popular printable PDF format, or can save and print the high-resolution, full-size JPEG you see below.

Who do you have winning the tournament? Really depends on the following questions: do you believe in Loyola-Chicago’s destiny? Can Michigan conjure up enough offense to complement their defense? Can the stars of Villanova and Kansas continually step up?  When it comes down to it, the rhythm the teams come into the game with and the effort they put forward will have a significant impact on who takes home the NCAA championship trophy.
