Last-shot practice pays with Final Four for North Carolina

"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a.", Williams said with a smile, quoting Clark Gable's famed line as Rhett Butler. Gonzaga and OR are still standing with a chance to make this a left coast championship game, ironically played out west in suburban Phoenix, Arizona.

The first night, they beat the Ducks by 11 in Greensboro, with Charlie Scott going for 34 points and 11 rebounds.

"Luke Maye was sensational in making baskets for us, made the big pass down court to Justin for the lay-up", North Carolina head coach Roy Williams said.

"The Gamecocks" of SC have players from Australia, Canada, Estonia, Gabon and Senegal.

They'll be facing OR, who hasn't been to the championship game, let alone the Final Four, since they won the first-ever NCAA Tournament in 1939.

North Carolina led most of the first half, establishing a nine-point lead at one stage before settling for a 38-33 edge at intermission. I don't recall people deriding North Carolina a year ago for catching breaks, but the run was nearly identical until the Tar Heels faced Villanova in the final. They lost 86-76 to Gonzaga in Nashville, Tennessee. SC (26-10) and OR (33-5) vs. The winning teams will then meet for the championship on April 3.

The Final Four will air on CBS on Saturday, with SC and Gonzaga set to play at 6:09 p.m. and North Carolina and OR at 8:49 p.m. "In this program, these kids, they come here, tell me what I have to do. There's not a team in this tournament that can do that, that's left". If you go the 10th time, you're nervous before that ball goes up in the air.

The Tar Heels finished this game with a 16-9 run. "You're missing a good game, ref!" a Kentucky fan screamed at one point. North Carolina spent several minutes using a backcourt of Nate Britt and Stilman White, a former walk-on.

ISAAC HUMPHRIES: We were all really, obviously, excited to play this game, so I was in the mindset of coming out and doing whatever I could to help my team. He's going to be called into action quite a bit with the likes of Tyler Dorsey, Dillon Brooks, Sindarius Thornwell and Nigel Williams-Goss in this Final Four. Right now they're experienced. I mean, you think of the plays they made, down five, to get back, and I mean, it was bang-bang. They have learned their roles and expectations within the team concept.

"Each coach is good enough to get their guys to concentrate on the games and that's what's important", he said.

The teams combined for 203 points in a December matchup won by Kentucky, but it was apparent early this game would not measure up to that one in terms of offensive fireworks.

"Every regional game that I've played in is this magnitude because you get a chance to keep playing", he said. They dominated that field in Maui.

One of Calipari's top players - Malik Monk - did just that in the first outing between the two teams. It's tape. You can't - you can say that - but deal with it, and they've got to deal with it, too.

"I'm sure when the coaches go back and look at film, there's going to be a lot of bad defenses of no helping".

SCOUTING REPORT: "The most impressive win in this tournament has been OR going into Kansas City and smacking Kansas".
