Tar Heels hope to use previous Final Four experience to their advantage in Phoenix


PHOENIX, AZ  (WWAY) — South Carolina, Gonzaga, Oregon and North Carolina are all headed to the Final Four. South Carolina and Gonzaga have never competed in the Final Four before. Oregon hasn’t been in the Final since the 1939. North Carolina is a frequent visitor to the Final Four. They’ve been 20 times. In fact the Tar Heels came an eyelash away from a national championship last season against Villanova. “It never gets old,” UNC head basketball coach Roy Williams after arriving in Phoenix Tuesday night. “I hope I’ll have some more, but each one is really unique in itself and I’m just as excited right now as have been in every one of them. I really believe that.”
