The Gamecocks, riding three-straight upsets of Duke, Baylor and Florida, capped one of the most unlikely Final Four runs the sport has ever seen, winning the much-heralded East region with a 77-70 win Sunday over their favored conference foes from Gainesville.

Flinging around bottles of water or firing off Super Soakers or dousing unsuspecting coaches, as had become the post-victory customs for teams nationwide, made no sense to Oregon. This was stuff you did when you accomplished something. And three wins in the NCAA tournament did not qualify 14

March 26, 2017 5:50 AM Bill Self, Kansas Jayhawks Didn't Choke: Oregon Ducks Earned Final Four Bid

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The hot take out of Kansas City on Saturday night is Bill Self did it again. Choked. In another Elite Eight. The seventh time in his career his team has crashed one step from the Final Four.
