We are one step closer to learning who will make the trip to Phoenix for the Final Four of the 2017 NCAA Tournament. The Elite Eight is set and this weekend teams will battle it out to punch their ticket to the Final Four.
With just a few games remaining in the tournament, it’s crucial for the remaining teams to put their best effort forward with a shot at the national title on the line.
The South region is the only portion of the bracket that went according to plan, with No. 1 North Carolina and No. 2 Kentucky reaching the Elite Eight. The Midwest comes down to No. 1 Kansas and No. 3 Oregon.
The East and the West, however, had some major shakeups.
In the East, No. 4 Florida faces No. 7 South Carolina for a trip to Phoenix, while the West features No. 1 Gonzaga and the only double-digit seed remaining in the tournament, No. 11 Xavier.
Who will advance to the next phase of the tournament? We will find out over the course of the next few days.
