Drake Hogestyn on the Final Four

Butler is taking on Michigan today followed by Duke and West Virginia in the NCAA baskeball tournament's Final Four taking place in Indianapolis. Monday night will be the champsionship game. The We Love Soaps tournament pool could be decided after today depending on the results. We caught up with new REALITY BYTES star and Indiana native Drake Hogestyn recently and spoke about the Final Four.

Hogestyn is rooting for his home state team saying, "I'm from Indiana where there's Hoosier hysteria. Now that Butler is in the Final Four, it's great. [Coach Mike] Krzyzewski's Duke is a good team, not a great team, but they're really coming on. They are really peaking right now. When a team all buys into the program and peaks at the right time, it's amazing.

"I've been rooting for Butler because they are from Indiana and are a Mid-Major team. But if Duke wins, it's somewhat of an underdog [story], even though they are a number one seed. They were the fourth number one seed and weren't expected to get as far as Kansas, Syracuse and Kentucky.

"I'm surprised Kentucky is out. Calipari has had such trememdous success since he went back to college from the pros. To have that kind of success right away at Kentucky shows you what a good coach can do."
