No. 1 South Carolina follows men's team, reaches Final Four

The forward is expected to be drafted somewhere in the first round of the upcoming National Basketball Association draft, so another strong performance against North Carolina could increase his value for some National Basketball Association teams. North Carolina stands out as the most talented and the deepest team in the Final Four, starting five players that all have at least three years of experience.

Martin has not given up on the yelling and his players say any harsh words are balanced with a parent's devotion and fierce loyalty.

Before March Madness, they had lost six of their last nine games, including their first one in the SEC Tournament. Tar Hell coach Roy Williams will be looking to add another piece to the hardware on his mantle. Seeing the joy on the faces of players and cheerleaders and coaches is, well, fun. Martin is no stranger to success in the tournament, as he led Kansas State to the Elite 8 in 2010.

RECORD HAUL: UNC, the South Region's No. 1 seed, earned a record 20th Final Four berth on Luke Maye's last-second shot to beat Kentucky 75-73 in Memphis, Tennessee.

The 26 national champions since 1990 have been: Duke (five times), CT (four times), North Carolina (three times), Kentucky (three times), Florida (two times), Arkansas, UCLA, Arizona, Michigan State, Maryland, Syracuse, Kansas, Louisville and Villanova. He chatted with former Stanford coach Mike Montgomery, who took the Cardinal to the 1998 Final Four. "I want you to pull his rear end over, too, scare him to death like you did me'".

"Our guys realized that we had a little bit more of an obstacle to come to Kansas City with all their fans", Altman said. "I'm just trying to go out there and help my team win as best I can". But it's even sweeter given the USC men's team's remarkable momentum in this year's NCAA college basketball tournament. He expects a different level of distraction at the Final Four, and that's to North Carolina's advantage. "The general distraction meter is going to through the roof".

Woods was in Clemson earlier this year when the Tar Heels were at Littlejohn Coliseum. "It was a high-level game", Pinson said. The Wolfpack got the matchup they expected against the Longhorns on Sunday with a trip to the Sweet Sixteen on the line .

This is the first Final Four for both Frank Martin and Mark Few, meaning one of the two will be playing for a national title on Monday night.

"How the stories have changed that I'm a yeller and a screamer to that I'm a passionate man", Martin said Tuesday, "I find that very comical".

The ball was not inbounded to point guard Joel Berry, who was heavily guarded, but instead to Theo Pinson, who played 12 minutes off the bench in last year's championship game. If you go the 10th time, you're nervous before the ball goes up in the air. During Oregon's 83-80 loss to Arizona, the Wildcats played four players as tall or taller than starting center Jordan Bell.

With what would potentially be one of the biggest games in the history of the Carolinas - if the Tar Heels and Gamecocks meet for all the marbles Monday night we must have calmer heads prevail. Williams-Goss paces that offense, but Gonzaga is at its best when its also getting points from Josh Perkins and Jordan Mathews beyond the arc.

Clearly your devotion to your team has paid off thus far, and now, to paraphrase the great Howie Rose call, 'just two more hills to climb, baby'.
