NCAA Tournament: Who Will Survive and Advance in the Final Four?
The story Saturday is the same as it's been since SC beat Marquette.
But a key Stanford injury and a 15-1 run by the Gamecocks sparked SC past the Cardinal 62-53 in the first NCAA Tournament national semifinal game Friday night at the American Airlines Center.
"First I'd like to congratulate Dawn and her South Carolina Gamecocks". The Bulldogs will start three transfers - Nigel Williams-Goss (Washington), Johnathan Williams (Missouri) and Jordan Mathews (California) - against SC on Saturday. "The journey we've been on has just been unreal, and we just never stopped believing and we've had the utmost confidence in ourselves the entire season long".
Halftime-North Carolina 39-36. 3-Point Goals-Oregon 7-26 (Dorsey 3-7, Ennis 2-9, Benson 1-2, Pritchard 1-5, Brooks 0-3), North Carolina 8-21 (Jackson 4-9, Berry 2-8, Britt 1-1, Pinson 1-2, Maye 0-1). Defense spurred the spurt, as it typically does with the Gamecocks.
Nigel Williams-Goss scored 23, Przemek Karnowski dropped 13 and freshman Zach Collins racked up 14.
"The rim protection that we have this year is different than anything we've been able to put out there", Bulldogs coach Mark Few said. "We just really struggled without our glue out there when Karlie twisted her ankle".
There were no obvious signs of distress - neither awkward gait nor grimace of pain after landing on a jumper - from the ankle injuries plaguing him as the Tar Heels prepare to face OR in the Final Four.

VanDerveer added, "I'd also like to congratulate our team on a great season". "His work ethic is awesome". It kind of disappeared on us there the last month of the season.
"I just didn't want to lose another game off a winning shot", said Joel Berry II, who missed the free throw that Meeks tore away from Jordan Bell to ice the game. So he's been huge for us. Killian Tillie secured the rebound for the Bulldogs and sank two free throws to ice the game.
The Bulldogs maintained a slim lead from there and led 75-72 with 12.7 seconds left as the Gamecocks set up a final play. But even those few skeptics will surely be silenced if the Zags can manage to pull out two more wins. I think it's midnight for Cinderella. But we practiced it a lot.
"To be playing the last game of the year, that's insane cool", added Few. The play was set for Thornwell to take a 3 from up top or drive quickly. The 3-pointer certainly wasn't his flashiest play of the game, but may have been the most momentous.
They'd hold on for dear life coming down the stretch. "And they've impacted our community in an unbelievable way, which is worth so much more than the score of a game. It's what it's all about".
