One of the most unpredictable NCAA tournaments in recent history served up a bit of the familiar for the Final Four and a good dose of something completely different.
Coached by Bob "Huggy Bear" Huggins, West Virginia will make its first appearance since 1959, back when Jerry West played guard. Its opponent Saturday will be Duke, the only No. 1 seed to make it to Indianapolis.
The other game features a pair of No. 5 seeds -- the first time that's happened. There's tiny Butler, which plays in the gym where they filmed the basketball classic "Hoosiers" and is making its first Final Four appearance. And there's Michigan State -- making its sixth appearance in the past 12 years, but probably its most unexpected.
