Zags, Ducks make Final Four

Two teams from the West Coast will be in the Final Four. The Southeastern Conference hopes to fill the other two spots.

Gonzaga trounced Xavier and Oregon upset Kansas in Saturday’s regional finals. Sunday’s schedule includes a Kentucky-North Carolina matchup in the South Region and an all-SEC showdown between Florida and South Carolina in the East Region.

If Kentucky beats North Carolina, the SEC would send two teams to the Final Four for the second time in the last four years. Florida and Kentucky both made the Final Four in 2014.

This marks Gonzaga’s first Final Four appearance in school history. Oregon hasn’t advanced this far since its 1939 national title.

Oregon is in the Final Four.

Tyler Dorsey scored 27 points and Jordan Bell was two blocks away from a triple-double as Oregon upset No. 1 seed Kansas 74-60 in the Midwest Regional final.

Joining Oregon in the Final Four is Gonzaga, which trounced Xavier 83-59 in the West Regional championship.

Two more Final Four invitations go out Sunday. North Carolina takes on Kentucky in the South Region, and South Carolina meets Florida in an all-Southeastern Conference East Region final.
