An 11 seed has not mad the Final Four since VCU in 2011. Prior to them, only George Mason in 2006 and LSU in 1986 had qualified for the Final Four from the 11th seed, something Xavier can add its name to if they are able to win here.
Gonzaga, on the other end, has never reached the Final Four, but a win here would put Mark Few and his group at en elite spot in Phoenix.
The Musketeers have been the darlings of the dance, making an improbable run that has seen them beat Maryland, Florida State and Arizona to this point. Xavier fully believes they can beat Gonzaga as well and if they play defensively the way they have the first three games, the Musketeers will be right there.
But Gonzaga is strong defensively, they have an advantage up front and this team has the feel of one that’s in a good situation to advance.
