NCAA Tournament 2017 Live Stream: Watch Oregon Vs. North Carolina!
Oregon and North Carolina will face off in the 2017 NCAA Tournament Final Four on Saturday. Watch the live stream below!
The two teams have made it almost to the end of this year’s March Madness, with tonight’s game the last round before Monday’s finals. This is the day’s second Final Four Game, following the match-up between South Carolina and Gonzaga earlier tonight. The University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona is the host of both critical games.
Oregon is in the Final Four for the first time since 1939, the same year the Ducks won the entire tournament. This year’s journey began with a number three seed in the Midwest Regional division and a win over Iona. In the second and third rounds, the players beat Rhode Island and Michigan, respectively, by just a few points. Oregon then knocked out Kansas, the number one seed, during last weekend’s Elite Eight.
In contrast, North Carolina has been to the Final Four 20 times, the most of any team in history. The Tar Heels were awarded the South Regional’s first seed, and kicked off this year’s run with a whopping 39-point victory over Texas Southern in the round of 64. That was followed by wins over Arkansas and Butler, respectively, in the round of 32 and Sweet Sixteen. For the Elite Eight, the players triumphed over the number two seed, Kentucky.
And after a crushing loss to Villanova in last year’s national championship, North Carolina is determined to win these last two games. But Oregon has a pretty powerful motivator, too, knowing this is the farthest the team has gone in decades. Gossip Cop predicts this will be a close one. Tip-off is slated for approximately 8:49 p.m. NOTE: The video is no longer available.
