Michigan State showed how playing as a team can overcome a talent disadvantage with their win over UConn to make the Final Four.

The team that everyone expected would, did.

With all the preseason hype they received, the North Carolina Tar Heels might've just headed North to Detroit and cut down the nets at Ford Field during football season.
