The results are in for the latest Courier Publications/VillageSoup sports poll, which asked viewers which team would win the National Collegiate Athletic Association men's basketball championship, as the majority of voters selected the Blue Devils of Duke.

Forty-five percent chose Duke, while 20 percent believed Gonzaga and Virginia would cut down the nets, and 10 percent picked North Carolina. Five percent voted for "the field," or the other 60 teams that make up the tournament.

Duke, Gonzaga, Virginia and North Carolina were the four No. 1 seeds in the tournament, and now only Virginia remains, as the NCAA men's tourney has four teams left standing.

Duke was eliminated in the Elite 8 by Michigan State, Gonzaga in the Elite 8 by Texas Tech and North Carolina in the Sweet 16 by Auburn.

With only four teams left, the sports staff asks: Which of the final four men's basketball squads do you believe will win the national championship?

Options for this poll include: Virginia, Michigan State, Texas Tech and Auburn.
