And then there were four. That's all that's left on the quest to win the NCAA Tournament in Glendale, and just one teams will earn the right to cut down the nets one final time at University of Phoenix Stadium. Take a look at the four teams that are left standing and how each of them have reached this point.
East Region Winner – South Carolina
The Gamecocks won exactly two games in the regular season against teams that made up this field of the NCAA Tournament. Now, they have four in a span of four games, including a second win this year against Florida in the Elite Eight. Did the bracket fall just right for Frank Martin's crew? Sure it did. But you have to be a lot more than just lucky. This is a team that was losing at halftime in three of its four March Madness games, including trailing by seven against both Duke and Florida. This takes grit and tenacity to get to this level, too. The Gamecocks are facing long odds against Gonzaga in the Final Four, but why shouldn't they be considered a legitimate threat to win it all at this point?
West Region Winner - Gonzaga
Hats off to the Zags for finally making it to the Final Four after 19 failures in this tournament under coach Mark Few. This Gonzaga team was always going to be one of the best Few ever brought to the dance, and after standing toe-to-toe with the best in the West and finally being the one to eliminate Xavier from the tourney and doing so in resounding fashion, there's no doubting that it should be the favorite to win the title from here. Will the Bulldogs be favored if they have to face North Carolina in the final? Nah. But we know they can beat Pac-12 teams and would have a great shot against Oregon.
Midwest Region - Oregon
The Ducks were placed poorly in the Midwest Region, but they were given a dream run to get into the Final Four, facing matchup after matchup against teams that just flat out didn't have a great chance against them. There's something about the way Dana Altman's team finds ways to speed up the game, yet slow it down all at the same time on the defensive end of the floor. Kansas was the last team to fall to the U of O, and my, what a great game that was for the Quack Attack. If you thought this team merely lucked into playing Iona, Rhode Island and Michigan to get into the Elite Eight and wasn't a deserving team that was just waiting to bow out at the first sign of trouble without Chris Boucher, think again.
South Region – North Carolina
The South Region was a nightmare to get through, but North Carolina handled the job with the highest of class. Kentucky got a little beaten up by UCLA, but kudos go out to the Wildcats for a great run that came up a Luke Maye shot just before the buzzer short of going to overtime with arguably the best team in America and certainly the most pound-for-pound talented team that was left in the NCAAs at that point. Now, Roy Williams' crew is the second favorite to win the championship at +160, and again, just as we have been preaching every step of the way, this is the only team in America that can say it would be favored over any other team in that it ran up against.
