Oregon played a near flawless first half. The Ducks negated Kansas' speed and Jordan Bell's shot blocking presence made the Jayhawks think twice when in the paint.

Largest lead of game for Oregon. Shooting well, defending, making life difficult for Kansas. Numbers tell the story

It's tough to get your vaunted transition game going when you're always taking the ball out of the net. Kansas has mostly had to play half-court ball, as Oregon's drained 61 percent of its 2s to go along with seven first-half 3s (four by Tyler Dorsey). Throw in four blocks by Jordan Bell, and this is close to a peak-Duck performance over the first 20 minutes.

Foul trouble has obviously kept Josh Jackson from being a factor offensively, but Kansas has to figure out a way to get Devonte Graham involved. Remember he's one of only four players in history to make at least four 3-pointers in his first three NCAA tournament games. He's missed his only attempt tonight.

"I'm a blessed man," Gonzaga coach Mark Few told the crowd, just before climbing the ladder to cut the net with his players. "And this is a blessed team."

Frank Mason doing Mason like things taking over offensively for the Jayhawks midway through the half. Oregon doing a lot of switching when it's in man-to-man, but may be better off throwing Ennis or Dorsey on him.

If there's not a place for KU's Frank Mason, III in the NBA, then I don't know what. Dude is a stud.

Question of the first half becomes how long Kansas coach Bill Self keeps Josh Jackson on the bench with two fouls. As talented as Jackson is, he's still a freshman playing in a high stakes game. We'll find out just how much trust Self has in him based on if he returns.

Quite a scene here in KC as we await Kansas--Oregon. Gonzaga--Xavier on the big screen. Lots of Jayhawks blue. @KUHoops

The 2017 Final Four's first team, and Gonzaga's first Final Four.

That sliver of green and yellow is pretty much it for Oregon fans in the Sprint Center. The rest of the place is decked in the red & blue of Kansas. It's not hyperbole, this will be like a road game for the Ducks.

Florida State WBB seeking first trip to Women's Final Four. Seminoles will face South Carolina in Stockton Regional final on Monday.

Gonzaga routs Xavier 83-59 to earn first berth in Final Four (first in school history and first team to earn a berth this year). The ViewFromVegas is the Bulldogs also covered as 8.5-point favorites and the game stayed under the betting total of 145 points. Gonzaga was the 7-5 favorite at the Westgate SuperBook to win the West Regional before the NCAA tournament started.

So cool to see Gonzaga make the Final Four after being there for the beginning of this run in 1999 in Seattle and Phoenix. Mark Few hasn't changed from when he was an assistant to now. What a win for the Zag players from Santangelo to Karnowski and everyone in between.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Really impressive aspect of this Gonzaga Final Four run is that Mark Few has done it with 4 starters who weren't on the floor a year ago: Karnowski (injured) and 3 transfers: Nigel Williams-Goss, Johnathan Williams and Jordan Mathews.
