NCAA men's tournament: 'Zags, Ducks reach Final Four

Kansas beat Purdue

The Zags had made it to the Elite Eight twice (in 1999 and 2015), but never the national semifinals.

That respect was given, and so Williams-Goss, whose dream was to play in at least one Final Four, waited emotionally until the final buzzer.

Under a brighter light, flaws and successes stand out even brighter and show what can be expected as the tournament turns up the intensity. "Because, to be honest, I don't think the players he played against in Japan were as big as us".

"Gonzaga ended the 11th-seeded Xavier Musketeers' Cinderella run in the NCAA Tournament on Saturday with a 83-59 victory to advance to the Final Four". Gonzaga plays in the West Coast Conference, where competition isn't as stiff as, say, in the ACC.

Making it to the school's first ever Final Four, something some experts felt could've happened previous year.

Within five years, Gonzaga was in the NCAA tournament.

Gonzaga takes more pride in its defense more than most other teams in the country.

With stars like Nigel Williams, Johnathan Williams, and Jordan Mathews, among a host of other scoring options, the Zags have so many ways to attack and win. Przemek Karnowski and Zach Collins are both seven-footers who can absolutely dominate in the lane against any team in the nation.

This Gonzaga team has none of those concerns.

If the refs let them play, though, it's an advantage for North Carolina.

The Gamecocks (30-4) scored the first 16 points of the game and led 22-7 after one period.

(Kansas City) - Tyler Dorsey scored 27 points, Dillon Brooks had 17 and OR romped Kansas 74-60 to clinch their first Final Four trip in 80 years. He then pantomimed sleeping during his teammate's interview, mocking those who doubted the Ducks. He returned as a fifth-season senior. The Ducks are 25-3 since December 1, losing at Colorado, at UCLA, and against Arizona in the Pac-12 Tournament.

By the end of the day, another team from the Pacific time zone joined them. Defensively, he was everywhere in the paint for OR, blocking shots, altering others, and cleaning the glass.

He had scored a game-high 23 points, Had grabbed eight rebounds and was thinking about where he was and where he had been.

The Gonzaga Bulldogs have become a regular visitor to the NCAA tournament and in my view this appears to be one of their stronger teams.

The Xavier Musketeers upset the Arizona Wildcats 73 to 71 in the 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament West Regional on Thursday. OR faces Kansas in the Midwest Regional championship at Kansas City, Missouri.

This season's Jayhawks team flashed the flaws that would eventually cause its demise.

Kansas cut the lead to six points with 2:50 left but could get no closer. That sample includes a win over Kansas State that should have been nullified by a travel call; a wild double-digit comeback over West Virginia; and two instances of Baylor folding down the stretch. Against Oregon, the well went dry and Frank Mason, Josh Jackson, and Devonte Graham could not find the answer elsewhere on the floor. Meanwhile in Lawrence, Bill Self remains with questions lingering about his work at Kansas. He also blogs about college basketball and the NBA at Palestra Back and has contributed to Rush The Court, ESPN.com, and USA Today Sports Weekly.
