GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Gonzaga and North Carolina have turned their attention toward Monday's national championship game.
The teams are holding news conferences and a closed practice at University of Phoenix Stadium on Sunday afternoon after both earned tough wins in the national semifinals the night before.
The Zags beat South Carolina 77-73 in the first game. Then the Tar Heels beat Oregon 77-76 in the nightcap.
Gonzaga (37-1) is in the Final Four for the first time, while North Carolina (32-7) is in the Final Four for a record 20th time. That includes last year's run to the national championship game, where the Tar Heels lost to Villanova on a buzzer-beating 3-pointer.
