The Final Four is set. Here are four important questions to consider as the teams head to Phoenix for next weekend's festivities.
Very few people predicted a Final Four between South Carolina, Gonzaga, Oregon, and North Carolina.
UNC is back in the Final Four, where it'll answer questions about the miracle shot in Memphis, not just the one that ended the Heels' 2015-16 season.
Villanova's Kris Jenkins talks about watching his brother, UNC's Nate Britt, defeat Kentucky in the Elite Eight and looks back on last year's National Championship game when he hit the game-winning shot to defeat his brother and North Carolina.
This is South Carolina's first trip to the Final Four. Same for Gonzaga. Oregon has been here before, in 1939. Then there's North Carolina, for a 20th time. No, this isn't your normal Final Four.
Kentucky forward Isaac Humphries put up a career-high 12 points in the Wildcats' 75-73 loss to North Carolina in the Elite 8.
