In an amazing development, the NCAA has cancelled the Final Four tournament in Phoenix, Arizona.
Many theories are circulating on the Internet and social media surrounding the cancellation. Among widespread speculation, here are several theories that seem to carry the greatest level of credibility.
One, Jordan Bell may only be 6’9, but he has been an absolute force in the paint during Oregon’s run to the Final Four. Therefore, some are speculating that Roy Williams is afraid of Jordan Bell’s shot-blocking ability. Bell has blocked 12 shots and committed only three fouls. Interesting.
Two, Xavier pulled off one of the greatest bracket busters of March Madness. The Arizona Wildcats suffered a devastating 2-point loss to the Musketeers in the Sweet 16. It is a continuation of a tough trend for Arizona Coach Sean Miller. He has made it to 10 NCAA tournaments, but never navigated his way to the Final Four. He would have had a strong home state advantage in Phoenix. Are we dealing with a wayward Wildcat fan?
Three, there is widespread speculation that the beloved mascot for Gonzaga, Spike the Bulldog, had a tragic accident this weekend. Apparently, he was attempting to jump through a Ring of Fire with this good friend and Phoenix Suns mascot, The Suns Gorilla.
