"I was fortunate to have played in three national championship games while I was at Johns Hopkins and the excitement my teammates and I felt being a part of that event was incredible," said Rabil. "I'm looking forward to being back in my home state of Maryland to cover the competition for SiriusXM and bring our listeners closer to the games. All four semifinalists are experienced "Final Four" teams and are playing at the top of their game, and it will be a lot of fun to see how these matchups unfold."
