The 2010 Final Four was completed on Sunday with teams led by two of the best coaches around punching their tickets. Michigan State, a team counted out on multiple occasions this season, will make it's sixth trip to the Final Four in the last twelve seasons due to their 70-69 win over Tennessee in the Midwest Region final in St. Louis. In a game that was tight throughout it took a Raymar Morgan free throw with 1.8 seconds remaining to provide the final margin. How did Morgan (13 points, 10 rebounds) get to the line?
Thanks to four players finishing in double figures and another grabbing twelve rebounds, the Tennessee Volunteers are headed to their first-ever Elite 8. Wayne Chism led the way with 22 points and 11 rebounds (18 pts in the second half) and Brian Williams added 12 rebounds as the Vols dominated the glass 41-29, grabbing 20 offensive rebounds in their 76-73 win over two-seed Ohio State in St. Louis. Evan Turner scored 31 points to lead the Big Ten Tournament champions but outside of William Buford (15 points) no other Buckeye reached double figures.
