Gonzaga beats Xavier 83-59 to reach first Final Four

Kansas face an OR team that has shown few weaknesses this season and despite losing probably their best player, Chris Boucher, tore his ACL earlier this season, but Dillion Brooks has kept this team glued together and the Ducks are a Final Four looking team.

"Wake 'em up", Dorsey said.

(San Jose) - Top-seeded Gonzaga rolled to a dominant 83-59 win over Cinderella No. 11 seed Xavier on Saturday night.

The Elite Eight, unlike the three rounds prior, only has one game played and televised at each interval.

Asked how he'd feel about potentially playing in front of massive crowds - expected to be around 70,000 at an National Football League stadium at the Final Four - Hachimura said: "Whether I'll get to play or not, there's not many people who can have that experience, even for Americans". "It's built on the respect my players have for me and how they feel about they were treated and coached and developed and all that". We've seen this narrative before. Saturday's 83-59 manhandling of Xavier earned the Zags their first trip to the Final Four semifinal matchup against Florida or SC next weekend.

Those days are over, and a week from now, Gonzaga will take the floor two wins away from a national title. Following a plane accident before the Big Ten Tournament, which they later won. The Ducks are 25-3 since December 1, losing at Colorado, at UCLA, and against Arizona in the Pac-12 Tournament. "We take pride in that". And we're not really backing down from anybody. We're going to enjoy the hell out of this, but then it's back to business.

Sure, there will still be one traditional powerhouse at the Final Four in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale, Arizona. Will it be enough against top seed North Carolina?

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — It's finally time to award the first spots in the Final Four.

Yep, the one where the Bruins won their 11th national championship.

And though this season the Bulldogs put together an impressive 32-1 record entering this tournament, earning the Bulldogs a No. 1 seed, they were considered by many a tier below the best schools thanks to a weak schedule.

It just wasn't meant to be for the Musketeers on Saturday night. "It's hard to get where we are".

This year's bunch of Bulldogs did. Nigel Williams-Goss led the way with 23 points, eight boards and four assists and Johnathan Williams III, who was named the region's Most Outstanding Player, added 19 points and nine boards as Gonzaga buried 12 threes and jumped out to an early lead they would never relinquish in a game that never felt like it was in doubt.

Bell is from Long Beach, California, for example.

One was born in Los Angeles, another in Memphis, two in small towns in OR and another in Torun, Poland.

Then there's the fact that OR feels like it has shattered some misguided perceptions about schools on the West Coast.

It definitely does make for an interesting sports bar debate, the idea of West Coast basketball vs. the rest of the country.

"We've had a lot of great teams, a lot of great players, and the one thing they can't say is they made the Final Four", junior guard Silas Melson said. "It shows no matter where you're born, toughness is just something you learn".
