As always, the National Championship game ends with the playing of "One Shining Moment". A salute to the champions -- the Western Leathernecks!

In the Sweet 16 round, #1 seed WIU took down #5 seed Kansas, 97-67.
Then in the Elite Eight round, matched up with #2 seed Florida and came away with a nailbiter victory, 96-93.
The Leathernecks are 35-0 on the season heading into the last "weekend".

He'll be livestreaming the Final Four matchup with fellow #1 seed Michigan State at 7:30 PM (central) this Saturday. If Western wins, they will take on the winner of Louisville/Villanova in the national championship game immediately following.
