Final Four Preview: UNC looks to return to the title game while South Carolina plays the wild card

GLENDALE, AZ – Gonzaga and South Carolina are both in their first Final Four, but it’s hard to really consider them equals. Gonzaga has been a national contender for the past 15 years, while South Carolina is the shock of the tournament but riding a very strong defense.
