Elite Eight Day Two

Then there was one....UCLA will be the lone Pac Ten representative in the Final Four joining Georgetown, Ohio State, Florida next weekend at the Georgia Dome.

Florida 85 Oregon 77

Next stop for the top-seeded Gators: Atlanta, where they'll play UCLA in the national semifinals in a rematch of last year's championship Game. Now Florida (33-5) would like to win both crowns in the same calendar year. And make a little history as the first team since Duke in 1991-92 to win back-to-back basketball titles -- and the first ever to do it with the same five starters. There might even be another date with Ohio State with a title on the line. The Buckeyes won the South Regional, and will play Georgetown on Saturday.

Georgetown 96 North Carolina 84

Georgetown overcame an 11-point deficit in the second half, then ripped off 14 straight points in overtime to stun the top-seeded Tar Heels 96-84 in the East Regional final Sunday for their first trip to the Final Four since 1985, when the coach was John Thompson Jr. and the star was Patrick Ewing.
