Jeremy Conn: NCAA Final Four Thoughts

Dorsey is averaging 24 points in the postseason.

The team then survived a late Stanford run to close out the game.

However, Bulldogs head coach Mark Few (or Fewey as Coach Martin likes to call him) understands that this SC will provide many challenges for his team outside of the stingy defense they play.

All Gonzaga had to overcome was a gruesome eye injury, the lost momentum from relinquishing a 14-point lead, its toughest defensive opponent and three of its best players teetering on the edge of fouling out in the final minutes.

Who: South Carolina (26-10) vs.

Two teammates came off the bench to carry Samuelson off the floor.

Based on the way the second half was going, it seemed highly unlikely the Gamecocks would even be in that position, having fallen behind 65-51 with just under 11 minutes remaining. But she was back on the bench after only 73 seconds, standing behind the bench briefly while stretching her ankle and grimacing in pain.

North Carolina is listed as a five-point favorite against OR with a 152-point total.

Gonzaga is looking to win its first championship as a continuation of the program's rise to prominence after the last two decades. The Bulldogs leaned on Collins, a 7-foot freshman to stabilize things. Alanna Smith had 14 points and 12 rebounds. They scuffled ahead of their NCAA Tournament run, losing six out of nine games, including their SEC tournament opener against Alabama.

Sindarius Thornwell, South Carolina. Plus a passionate coach who calls himself a dreamer, with a dream that may not be finished just yet.

Stanford shot 4 of 21 (19 percent) in the third quarter.

3 players with at least 10 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks in a Final Four game. The best story of the NCAA Tournament will end with little drama.

Gonzaga is the first men's basketball team to make it to the NCAA Final Four from Washington state since Seattle University went in 1958.

Some new blood is filling in for the blue bloods at the Final Four, with the Bulldogs pulling their stunner in their first trip to the semifinals and the Gamecocks taking over in the second half of their second visit and beating frequent semifinalist Stanford 62-53.

Pregame: A SC equestrian team member, a Gonzaga golfer, a North Carolina fencer and an OR volleyball player sang the National Anthem. That has carried them to a 36-1 overall record and an 18-16 mark with the under. They were facing Notre Dame with a chance to play UCONN in the National Championship game.
