The 2015 NCAA Tournament has flown by.

It seems like just yesterday that we were watching the round of 64 and saw upsets like Georgie State beating Baylor, UCLA beating SMU and UAB beating Iowa State.

We now find ourselves in the Final Four and what a Final Four it is. Undefeated Kentucky will take on Wisconsin and the hard working 7th seed Michigan State will try to defeat Coach K and Jahlil Okafor along with the rest of the Duke Blue Devils.

Ahead of the two epic match ups lets take a look at what we can expect.

Kentucky (1) vs Wisconsin (1):

If Kentucky can get through Wisconsin, they will most likely win it all. The key word here being "if". We saw that the Kentucky Wildcats in fact are not immortal like we all thought as Notre Dame took the game to them, which saw Kentucky just hardly scrape by to the Final Four.

Kentucky has 5-7 NBA potential players on their roster and are undefeated on the season, however, if anyone can beat UK it has to be Wisconsin. Frank Kaminsky is the leader of the Badgers and is one of the top players in NCAA basketball. He is in his senior year and is hoping for a fairy tale ending to his college career.

Duke (1) vs Michigan State (7):

Michigan State has been the surprise of the tournament, the one 7th seeded team amongst three 1st seeded teams in the Final Four.

Watching Michigan State's gritty hard working game, under the leadership of long time coach, Tom Izzo has been a great experience, however, the question for Izzo and the Spartans is if they can beat the talented Duke Blue Devils.

Duke has the likely 1st overall NBA Draft pick in Jahlil Okafor who has been amazing for the school this season and surely will be a star in the NBA. Duke are coached by the legendary Mike Krzyzewski, better known as Coach K, who has been with Duke for 35 years and has been the Coach for team USA Basketball. Coach K coaches champions.

Finals Prediction: Wisconsin (1) vs Duke (1)

Shocked? Don't be. Kentucky will not end this season undefeated, despite their super talented team. Wisconsin will come into the game with an intensity and drive to pull out the win and move on to the finals.

Duke vs Michigan State was the harder pick, as Michigan State does have a legitimate chance to defeat Duke. However, after Duke's early exit last year, they have something to prove and making it to the finals is the first step towards doing just that.
