For the first time in NCAA history, both the University of North Carolina and the University of South Carolina are both heading to the Final Four. It will be South Carolina’s first time and North Carolina’s 20th time.
The South Carolina Gamecocks dominated on defense and free throws to beat out the Florida Gators, 77-70, in the East Regional final at Madison Square Garden.
In classic Tar Heels style, UNC clinched the Final Four slot with just 0.03 seconds left on the clock, beating Kentucky with a final score of 75-73:
