Here’s what ESPN’s BPI is projecting to happen in the Final Four.
The Final Four is set.
Two of the four spots were wrapped up nearly a week ago on Saturday – Gonzaga beat Xavier and Oregon beat Kansas. Meanwhile the final two spots got filled on Sunday when South Carolina beat Florida and North Carolina took down Kentucky.
South Carolina continued its Cinderella run with a comeback win over the Gators. Down by seven at the half, the Gamecocks outscored Florida by a 14-point margin en route to a 77-70 win and a trip to the Final Four.
Oregon took down No. 1 Kansas with a stout defensive effort, led by Jordan Bell, who managed 13 rebounds and eight blocks. The Ducks stifled Kansas' impressive offense, allowing the Jayhawks to score just 60 points en route to a 14-point victory -- in their first three games, the Jayhawks scored at least 90 points.
With the Final Four set in stone, here’s what ESPN’s BPI is projecting in both games.
No. 1 Gonzaga vs. No. 7 South Carolina
Game time: 6:09 p.m. E.T.
Score prediction: Gonzaga by 14 points
No. 1 UNC vs. No. 3 Oregon
Game time: 8:49 p.m. E.T.
Score prediction: North Carolina by 2 points
Both games will take place on Saturday, April 1.
