University of North Carolina Tar Heels Vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs
UNC nearly missed the big dance, as the Tar Heels came dangerously close to falling to Oregon in the Final Four. The Ducks lost, 77-76, but not before giving every UNC fan a heart attack. After Oregon’s Keith Smith trimmed UNC’s lead down to just one point, the team had four chances to get farther ahead of Oregon.
Yet, both Kennedy Meeks and Joel Berry III missed their free throw chances. Four shots completely blown in the closing seconds of the game. Unbelievable! It’s no surprise that 60% of voters picked Oregon to go over UNC in this match. When the Tar Heels take on Gonzaga, they can’t make such rookie mistakes if they want to win the title!
Things were more joyous for Gonzaga, even though they nearly blew a 14-points lead over the South Carolina Gamecocks in the Final Four match. With 11 minutes remaining, the Bulldogs were in a comfortable lead, per NPR. Then, South Carolina went on a 16-0 streak to take the lead. It would be Zach Collins and Prezemek Karnowski leading the fight to reclaim the lead and when the buzzer rang, Gonzaga won – 77-73.
Will the Bulldogs have better luck in this match? Or will UNC get their game together and claim another national title? There’s only one way to find out. Come back to HollywoodLife.com around game time for info on a livestream. Don’t forget to vote!
