The Washington University men's basketball team knocked off the Nos. 1 and 3 seeds last weekend in the NCAA Division III tournament to advance to the semi-finals.

This year's trip to the Final Four marks the third straight season in which the men's team has survived to the final rounds of the touney. Last year's team won the championship. The Bears, seeded No. 2, take on No. 23 Guilford College on Friday at 4 p.m. in Salem, Virginia. You can view the game on CBS College Sports or NCAA.com.

Meanwhile, the women's team (national champs for four consecutive years from 1998 to 2001) return to the women's Final Four for the first time since '07. The lady Bears takes on Amherst on Friday.
