Oregon's Jordan Bell is in the head of every player on KU's roster right now. 7 blocks and altered a dozen more shots. He's really helped his draft stock this tournament. Dominant defender.

Bill Self would really really like to get to Final Four. He's lost 4 of 6 Elite 8 games with Kansas, 3 times as the # 1 seed. He says this round has an aura all its own, and here lately not a pleasant one for KU

Jordan Bell just set an Oregon record with his fifth blocked shot. He also has 11 rebounds -- Kansas currently has a total of 15.

Gonzaga's 83-59 win over Xavier to reach the Final Four was the Bulldogs' 23rd victory by a margin of 20 points or more. That's the most such wins since 1998-99 Duke, which went 37-2 and lost to UConn in the national championship.

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

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

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.
