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.

They've dubbed it Red Dead Redemption V, a combination of the titles of the two games, and are developing it as a mod for GTA 5 . Along with this update is the new Progen GP1 supercar which also now available in GTA Online from Legendary Motorsport.

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".

Syria: Rebels, Jihadists Launch Attacks On Eastern Districts In Damascus
More than 320,000 people have been killed since Syria's conflict erupted six years ago with protests against Assad's rule. Qabun is an area in northeastern Damascus that has been the target of heavy shelling by government forces in recent weeks.

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.

The British government said last week that it would temporarily restrict its advertising on the company's platforms. Nina dos Santos contributed to this article .

"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.
