Sixty-eight teams entered the 2017 NCAA tournament, and after South Carolina eliminated Florida and North Carolina knocked out Kentucky in the latter two Elite Eight games Sunday, only four teams remain.
Those four teams — Gonzaga, Oregon, South Carolina and North Carolina — will travel to Phoenix in the coming days for the Final Four, which will tip off Saturday evening around 6 p.m. ET. The NCAA announced the order of the two games shortly after the North Carolina-Kentucky game went final:
Saturday, April 1
(All times Eastern)
6:09 p.m. — No. 1 Gonzaga vs. No. 7 South Carolina — CBS (Line: Gonzaga -6.5)
*8:49 p.m. — No. 1 North Carolina vs. No. 3 Oregon — CBS (Line: UNC -5)
*The second game will tip off approximately 40 minutes after the conclusion of the first game
The semifinal winners will play in the national championship on Monday night.
Monday, April 3
9 p.m. — Semifinal 1 Winner vs. Semifinal 2 Winner — CBS
Jim Nantz, Grant Hill, Bill Raftery and Tracy Wolfson will be on the call for all three games. Monday’s game won’t actually begin at 9 — it will begin several minutes after the top of the hour.
The two semifinal games and national title game will be played at the University of Phoenix Stadium. The stadium, which normally houses football and holds 63,400 people, is actually in Glendale, but Phoenix is the host city, and will be the site of other Final Four events throughout the weekend.
