South Carolina and North Carolina advance in NCAA tournament

The Final Four field is set after No. 7 South Carolina and No. 1 North Carolina won their regional finals on Sunday.


No. 7 seed South Carolina beat No. 3 seed Florida 77-70 in the East Region final, while North Carolina beat Kentucky 75-73 in the South Region final.


The national semifinals on Saturday, April 1, will pit No. 1 seed Gonzaga against No. 7 South Carolina and No. 1 North Carolina versus No. 3 Oregon. The winners will then face off on Monday, April 3, for the national championship.


No matter who wins, there will be a new national champion. Defending national champion Villanova was eliminated in the round of 32 by Wisconsin. The last back-to-back NCAA champions was Florida in 2006 and 2007.
