Every Final Four season has its hiccups—those moments where the entire production feels scattered, broken, fated to fail.

On March 2nd, Wichita State lost to Creighton, 91-79. It was the Shockers' second consecutive defeat, and it dropped their season record to 24-7.

On March 9th, Syracuse lost to Georgetown, 61-39. It was the Orange's fourth loss in their last five, and it dropped their season record to 23-8.

Since then, Syracuse and Wichita State have lost two games combined. And next week in Atlanta, each will play for a shot at the national title.

It happens every year. And it's why we keep watching.

Long live college basketball.
