The Final Four tips off on Saturday with two games fighting for their chance to play in the National Championship game.
One of the match ups is a WCC/SEC showdown between the Gonzaga Bulldogs and the South Carolina Gamecocks.
One of these two teams will be making their first ever appearance in the national championship game.
South Carolina Gamecocks
No one expected the South Carolina Gamecocks to be in this position, many expected to them to be out of the tournament in the Round of 64.
But here we are in the Final Four and Frank Martin has his Gamecocks still playing, and playing at a very high level.
Of any of the teams left, the Gamecocks have had the toughest road to get to the final four.
They had to beat Marquette, Duke, Baylor and Florida, and their game on Saturday night won’t get any easier.
Against the Gators the Gamecocks trailed much of the game, before a late push was enough to beat them 77-70.
The Gamecocks were led by Sindarius Thornwell. He had 26 points and seven rebounds. He was also the emotional leader on the defensive side of the floor.
For the Gamecocks to pull the upset they need to play with the same intensity on the defensive end that they have had all tournament.
On the other side of this match up is the Gonzaga Bulldogs. Like the Gamecocks they are reaching the Final Four for the first time in program history.
The Bulldogs had the easiest Elite 8 match up of any of the four teams left. They beat the upset minded Xavier Musketeers 83-59.
The Bulldogs were led by Nigel Williams-Goss. He poured in 23 points and grabbed six rebounds. Johnathan Williams also contributed 19 points and 8 rebounds.
For the Bulldogs to win this game they need to lean on their Senior leadership and get off to the fast start.
They need to play well on the offensive end and try to find the weaknesses in a Gamecocks defense that can really shut teams down.
Free South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs NCAAB Prediction: Gamecocks ATS
Everyone has doubted the Gamecocks all year, and I think they were disrespected again with the line that was released for this game.
I think the Bulldogs have more talent and that will lead them to the victory, but I think the Gamecocks will cover the spread.
