Xavier Basketball's on unexpected Elite Eight run

Then he allowed himself a good cry.

"Everybody was asking me, 'Is this your best team, ' in November", Few said. "And so, yeah, tears of joy and just makes your heart warm to like 350-degrees Celsius or something". "It's been awhile since I was in class".

The Zags have been burying 3-pointers against Xavier's 2-3 zone, but Xavier's still managing enough points in transition and at the foul line to stay within striking distance. With the Final Four taking place Saturday, April 1, and leading up to the national championship on Monday, April 3, Phoenix is in for a wild ride - and featuring your Oregon Ducks, for the first time since 1939, when the Ducks won the program's only basketball national championship, which required only three wins.

"We're all about going to the beach, sunshine", Bell said. "And we'll go down there to try to win the thing". Gonzaga was the heavy favorite with just one loss on its resume. They've won at least one game in 16 of the 19 NCAA tournaments, including this year, that they've been a part of, including five of the six years in which they were a double-digit seed.

Goldman Sachs strategist: Yes, Marine Le Pen can win in France
If Macron gets only 75 percent of his voters to cast their ballots, Le Pen could be the next president of France. She said that she had her "own viewpoint on Ukraine, [which is] identical to Russia's".

He will likely be matched up with Nigel Williams-Goss, the Gonzaga guard who has propelled the Bulldogs to their best regular season and best tournament seeding in school history.

Xavier is doing something no one has done all season against Gonzaga: run an efficient offense.

"We didn't think he was ever going to walk again normally and just function, I mean, getting in and out of a vehicle and doing things like that", coach Mark Few said.

Xavier has had a great run, but I feel like the Gonzaga defense is going to be too much for them to overcome. And I mean this wasn't even possible. "This was a culture win and a culture statement and couldn't be prouder".

'The Walking Dead' season 7 spoilers: Is Sasha still alive?
In four seasons, her only defining characteristic was her relationship with Abraham, both before and after he dumped her . At the Saviors' compound, Eugene is showing a guard around when Sasha drops the guy with a silenced firearm.

Unfortunately for Xavier, replay confirmed that J.P. Macura's 80-foot shot was just a little after the buzzer sounded. Xavier was out-rebounded by Arizona, 35-27, but Gonzaga has been unable to secure the boards, and the Musketeers will have an opportunity at some second-chance points, which is where they can hurt the Bulldogs. He expressed gratitude for his current players and those that came before them that set up a winning program from a smaller conference that could compete at the highest stage. They are really, really good.

If the Bulldogs continue to play solid perimeter defense.

With about a minute left in a blowout that would finally send his team to the Final Four, the emotion finally hit Gonzaga head coach Mark Few.

Along with that, the Musketeers need Trevon Bluiett to be as efficient from the field as he was with his 9-of-17 shooting performance in the Sweet 16. This can become an issue the farther they go into the tournament, but can also be a great advantage. The Musketeers pulled off an upset over No. 2 Arizona on Thursday night, 73-71.

Jeff Flake: Wiretapping of Trump Tower by Obama 'just didn't happen'
O'Reilly said that there is absolutely no evidence that Obama tapped Trump Tower during the presidential campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James Comey publicly contradicted Trump's claims for the first time .

"When we got into the Elite Eight (round), I was just like, 'Okay, this is the Elite Eight, ' " he said. "It's not validation now (that we've) made a Final Four". That Kelly Olynyk-led group ranked among the nation's best on the offensive end, and was unlucky to face an insanely hot Final Four-bound Wichita State in a brutal second-round matchup, but it did finish 30th in adjusted defensive efficiency, outside the range of basically every other national champion of the past 15 seasons.
