This March has been truly mad. As we prepare to watch the UConn vs Miami live stream of the Final Four game, we can't help but reflect on what a rollercoaster ride the 2023 March Madness tournament has been. UConn is the highest seed left at No. 4 out of the West region, while Miami was No. 5 in the Midwest.

The matchup should be an offensive showcase, which you don't have to miss even if you've cut the cord. You can catch all the basketball action with one of the best cable TV alternatives or for free!

UConn owns three previous national championships and is the only program left in the tournament that has even been to the Final Four before. Under the guidance of coach Dan Hurley, they've rolled through this year's March Madness, winning games by at least 15. 

The Huskies are favored over Miami, thanks to the scoring prowess of Jordan Hawkins, Andre Jackson Jr. and Adama Sanogo. Hawkins is coming off back-to-back 20-plus point games, while Jackson has been an assist machine in earlier rounds.  

Miami has some offensive weapons in its arsenal. Jordan Miller, Isaiah Wong, Norchad Omier and Nijel Pack are all capable of putting up a lot of points. Their defense is not quite as strong, but when they get stops, their transition offense is one of the best. 

The Hurricanes are also terrific at the free throw line, which could make a real difference since UConn can be prone to foul trouble. 

UConn (-250) are the moneyline favorites according to DraftKings, so you'd need to bet $250 to win $100. Miami (+210) is the underdog, but with a more experienced coach in Jim Larranaga, they shouldn't be counted out.

Here's everything you need to know to watch San Diego State vs Florida Atlantic online, plus the full schedule and what we know about the brackets so far.
