Of all the teams that make up this year's Final Four, the most improbable of the lot is Connecticut. And it's not even close.

Though the Huskies' No. 7 seed was better than fellow national semifinalist Kentucky (No. 8), the expectations surrounding both teams were far different throughout the season. Simply put, UConn never looked like a Final Four contender, at least not until the NCAA tournament began.

Connecticut (30-8) faces its toughest test yet, squaring off with top overall seed Florida (36-2) at 5:09 p.m. ET Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
