The field is set. The Final Four gets underway on Saturday in Glendale, Ariz.
The Final Four is set after a thrilling conclusion to the Elite Eight on Sunday. The North Carolina Tar Heels, Oregon Ducks, Gonzaga Bulldogs and South Carolina Gamecocks are the last teams standing. The fight for the national championship will take place in Glendale.
For North Carolina, it’s the 20th Final Four appearance in program history. Gonzaga and South Carolina are making their first ever appearances in the national semifinals. Oregon won the national title in 1939 and has not been back since.
The Gamecocks are the clear Cinderella here, stunning Duke in the second round, blowing out Baylor in the Sweet 16, and outlasting Florida to reach the Final Four. South Carolina faces a Gonzaga team that finally reaches the Final Four in its 19th straight NCAA tournament appearance.
North Carolina vs. Oregon should be uptempo and wildly entertaining. The Tar Heels beat Kentucky on a Luke Maye buzzer-beater, while Oregon stunned Kansas behind a dominant effort from center Jordan Bell and guard Tyler Dorsey.
Here’s the complete schedule for the Final Four, which starts Saturday in Glendale. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
