Bruins advance “from First Four to Final Four,” while Bulldogs extend unbeaten run

03/31/2021

UCLA is heading to the Final Four for the first time since 2008–and this time they have accomplished the feat after surviving a First Four game. The Bruins join VCU (2011) as the only First Four participants to go on to advance all the way to the last weekend. Their road does not get any easier, though, as they will next face undefeated Gonzaga on Saturday. Mark Few’s squad rolled past USC on Tuesday and is now just two wins away from attaining the first perfect season since Indiana’s 1975-’76 national championship campaign.


Michigan missed an open three-point attempt down 1 with 12 seconds to play. After a Johnny Juzang free throw extended the UCLA lead to 51-49 with 6 seconds left, the Wolverines missed two more shots from behind the arc, and the Bruins held on to advance to the Final Four.


Top-seed Gonzaga completely dominated the first half, putting USC in their rear view mirror with a 49-30 lead heading into the locker room. The second half was a bit sloppy at times, but the Zags made enough buckets when they needed them to never let the Trojans go on a big run. At 30-0, the West Coast Conference champions are now just two wins away from perfection and their first national title.
