The first three teams to make the Final Four were Gonzaga and South Carolina — who have never made it this far in the NCAA tournament — and Oregon, who hasn’t gone since 1939.

But that’s history. To put it in more relevant terms: Roy Williams has coached 520 minutes of Final Four basketball, while the other three remaining coaches have coached zero combined.
That might have something to do with why almost no one saw this Final Four coming.
