One half of the 2022 NCAA Tournament Final Four is set.

On Saturday, No. 2 seed Duke and No. 2 seed Villanova advanced to the Final Four, defeating Arkansas and Houston, respectively.

On Sunday, two more spots in the Final Four will be locked up, when No. 1 seed Kansas plays No. 10 seed Miami and No. 8 seed North Carolina takes on No. 15 seed Saint Peter's.

Who do you have advancing to the Final Four?

ESPN's computer model, the Basketball Power Index, has updated its prediction for college basketball's national champion heading into Sunday.

Here's who ESPN's Basketball Power Index likes right now: Duke.

The No. 2 seeded Blue Devils are currently given a 36.1 percent chance of winning it all, a percentage higher than every other team remaining.

Duke will face the winner of the North Carolina vs. Saint Peter's game in the Final Four next Saturday night.
