Oregon, UNC, South Carolina and Gonzaga are headed to the Final Four


The Oregon Ducks, the North Carolina Tarheels, the Gonzaga Bulldogs and the South Carolina Gamecocks are all going to continue dancing to the Final Four. 

UNC knocked off the Kentucky Wildcats in a 75-73 win in the NCAA South Regional Final Sunday. Now, the Tarheels are slated to play Oregon Saturday for a chance to compete in the Finals on April 3. 

South Carolina, a No. 7 seed out of the East, defied expectations again Sunday afternoon with its 77-70 win against Florida to continue on to the Final Four.

This will be South Carolina's first Final Four appearance and the team is set to go head-to-head with Gonzaga Saturday in Phoenix. Gonzaga is another team making its first trip to the big game. 

South Carolina, however, has become a fan favorite because of the team's unexpected run. 

Darius Rucker, who is actually a lifelong fan of the Gamecocks, celebrated the historic moment.
