Oregon faces North Carolina in the NCAA tournament Saturday, the first trip to the Final Four for the U of O since 1939 when Oregon won college’s first national basketball championship. The semifinals game is set for tipoff at 5:49 p.m. PDT, following the other Final Four matchup, pitting Gonzaga against South Carolina which is scheduled to start at 3:09 p.m. Both games will be broadcast on CBS TV.
Oregon advanced by beating Kansas, 74-60, last Saturday night in Kansas City, Mo. Tyler Dorsey poured in 27 points, Dillon Brooks added 17 and Dylan Ennis added 12 points for the Ducks (33-5), who took the lead with 16 minutes left in the first half and never trailed again, giving coach Dana Altman his first trip to the Final Four.
