Six Seahawks have ties to NCAA Final Four

Find out which Seahawks players' colleges are still alive in the 2015 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.

The 2015 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament is down to its Final Four teams and six Seahawks still hold a rooting interest.

On Saturday, April 4, the West Region champion and No. 1-seeded Wisconsin Badgers will face the Midwest Region champion and No. 1-seeded Kentucky Wildcats, while the East Region champion and No. 7-seeded Michigan St. Spartans will meet the South Region champion Duke Blue Devils, with the winners squaring off in the Championship Game on Monday, April 6.

From a Seahawks standpoint, that pits quarterback Russell Wilson, wide receiver David Gilreath, linebacker Brendan Kelly, and linebacker Mike Taylor's Wisconsin ball club up against wide receiver Chris Matthews' Kentucky side. Tight end Cooper Helfet, who played football at Duke, is the lone Seahawk whose college is still alive on the other side of the bracket.

Duke and Michigan St. tip off at 3:09 p.m. PT tomorrow with Wisconsin and Kentucky following up at 5:49 p.m. PT on TBS.
