Oregon, UNC, South Carolina, Gonzaga fill out Final 4

They're all pretty fundamentally sound.

The Gators are a prime example with a top ten strength of schedule that was really took a hit when they went into league play. "We have to guard them too".

Whatever the atmosphere was on Friday night, it was unexpected, mostly because no one thought SC would be through to a regional final, let alone a Sweet 16.

Florida connected on 7 of their 12 three-point attempts in the opening half and went into the break with a seven-point lead.

"When they are allowed to hand check you and bump you and have three guys swing at you when you're in the air, and there's no fouls called", said Chiozza, "there's nothing you can do about that". "So and we just faced adversity and just got to be tough and keep moving forward, just like now".

On consecutive Sundays, UNC had its NCAA life flash before it, trailing Arkansas by five late before running off the game's last 12 points, trailing United Kingdom by five with five minutes left before scoring the next 12 and looking home until they weren't until they were. "We just got to stay poised, stay together".

What if UF's leading scorer KeVaughn Allen, who scored a Gators' NCAA Tournament record 35 points against Wisconsin, hadn't gone 6 for 20 from the floor against SC? The Gators turned the ball over 16 times, shot just 31.4 percent in the second half and, after taking a 63-61 lead with 3:48 left in the game, scored on just one of their next five possessions.

"I just thought Florida State imposed their will after the start of the game", Staley said. "The first two games, it didn't go well for me how I wanted it to go as far as shooting it". When they put up a statue of Martin outside Colonial Life Arena, they can just slap a plaque on a 10-foot-high stone box.

One of the following teams will be playing on April 3: Gonzaga, Xavier, Wisconsin, Florida, South Carolina or Baylor.

Wisconsin Badgers Take On the Surging Florida Gators
The Badgers are making their fourth-consecutive trip to the Sweet Sixteen, the longest active streak in the nation. Derrick Walton Jr. has been nothing less than spectacular to watch and the versatile play of their two bigs, D.J.

Their paths to this regional final couldn't have been any more different.

After a back and forth first ten minutes of play, SC grabbed the lead for good at 18-15 on a three-pointer from Notice. I don't care how hard it gets.

It's hard to claim any team from a traditional Big Six conference is a Cinderella, but in historical terms, SC is as close as you could get. "They have guys flying all over the place".

Florida is in the Elite Eight for the first time since 2014, and for the first time with second-year coach Mike White - the former MS guard who was on the losing end of one of the most famous game-winning shots in NCAA history.

"Their defense is similar to ours", he said. Suddenly, the Gators lost a key defensive piece and an effective rim protector.

"They're so long and they're fast and". "Really, you look back to those scrimmage situations, and as a scrimmage partner, you follow them throughout the year because you're a fan".

The victory marked coach Frank Martin's 10th NCAA tournament win. The Gators beat Wisconsin in overtime after USC beat Baylor, then had to be right back at MSG by 2:50 p.m. Saturday (the NCAA put the late-game winners at practice and pressers first).

When Florida basketball coach Mike White left his post-game news conference, his father and the Duke athletic director, Kevin, was waiting for him in an outside hallway. "And I'm sure SC feels that way as well". Both teams earned their shots at the national semifinals and are here on merit, not smoke and mirrors. Clark fills Motley's model in some ways and could see some early minutes even as a freshman. Robinson said he has to talk with his parents and coaches before deciding whether to return for his senior season or go pro. It's time for Clemson to return and make a run of its own.

SC tips off against the No. 1-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs in Phoenix on April 1 at 6:09 p.m. This was the first time a SC team ever made it to the Elite 8.
