SC vs. (1) Gonzaga, 3:09 p.m.
Oregon's Dana Altman soaked up a Gatorade bath. Coach Roy Williams improved to 9-4 in regional finals overall and 5-3 at North Carolina.
North Carolina advances to the Final Four with a 31-7 record. The national semifinals isn't a birthright to anyone, of course, but it is at least a fairly regular destination for the Tar Heels. She chose not to play basketball in college, but could have. "Just what if?' And my heart will start beating real fast", Briscoe said.
Few can be forgiven his scientific snafu.
They'll have another shot in the Final Four against No. 1 seed Gonzaga.
STOP MONK: The freshman guard turned in his best game this season in that 103-100 win over North Carolina in December. The Tar Heels never let their lead get under double digits in the second half. Gonzaga is an experienced team with all the right ingredients. "They made big shots". OR has been there once before, in 1939 when the tournament had just eight teams competing. The Webfoots, nicknamed the "Tall Firs", won the championship. Freshman Hamidou Diallo (6-5) will play next season after practicing and watching this semester. But whenever he's back, he'll keep feeling the love for a long time.
Unguarded on the left wing, Maye took a pass from teammate Theo Pinson, straightened, launched and made an 18-footer with 0.3 seconds to play to lift North Carolina to that 75-73 victory, the one that stopped the Wildcats three victories short of where they meant to finish. "Four seconds made a difference in my life".
Still, Roy Williams was not pleased, saying, "I thought we played bad the last four-to-five minutes".

The anticipated Elite Eight showdown between Villanova and Duke in Madison Square Garden evaporated in the first weekend. Fox scored the first eight points for Kentucky and was all over the court forcing turnovers or diving to the floor to force a jump ball. Kansas looked like a juggernaut - until it couldn't score against Oregon.
"That's what we come to college basketball for, and it doesn't get any better than this", North Carolina junior guard Joel Berry II said Saturday. "We need to make dome dadgum shots and free throws". Gonzaga chewed up darling Northwestern and less darling West Virginia.
It looked like Kentucky's regional to win.
"It was about more than just holding and hosting athletic events", Williams said during his news conference.
"We felt like we was doing the right things".
