A VCU – Butler Final Four Matchup Will Be Historic.

With their win over Kansas Sunday, VCU set up a Final Four game in which each team will have been unranked for at least 17 of 19 AP polls this season.  VCU was unranked all year and Butler was unranked for all but the first two weeks of the season.  There has been only 4 instances, since the Top-25 era began in 1989, where the two teams meeting in a Final Four game have been unranked at some point in the season.  2006 Florida was the only one to win the National Title, but they were only unranked for the first two weeks of the season.
