Gonzaga's Mark Few doesn't feel he needs a Final Four to validate his legacy

Gonzaga will try to get Mark Few to his first Final Four with a win over Xavier on Saturday. SAN JOSE, Calif. — For a coach who has reached 19 NCAA tournaments in a row, won nine straight first-round games and made the Elite Eight twice in the past three years, Gonzaga’s Mark Few still spends a startling amount of time talking about the one thing he hasn’t yet accomplished. Seldom has a day gone by this season without someone asking Few if this is the year he’ll lead the Zags to their first Final Four.

Canyon Barry's LeBron-esque block is the great play that nobody will remember

The play before the play began with a fly pattern, 15 feet of separation, and a ball, flying through the tension-filled Madison Square Garden air to its target and seemingly to the Elite Eight. Nobody will talk about what happened next, because what happened after what happened next was the greatest shot of the 2017 NCAA tournament, and arguably one of the great shots in NCAA tournament history. There was Khalil Iverson, racing down the floor of the world’s most famous arena, about to put Wisconsin up four with 36 seconds to play.

How De'Aaron Fox ended Lonzo Ball's college career and lifted Kentucky to the brink of another Final Four (Yahoo Sports)

How De'Aaron Fox ended Lonzo Ball's college career and lifted Kentucky to the brink of another Final Four

Soft-spoken, mild-mannered, understated LaVar Ball wants you to believe his oldest son, Lonzo, is the greatest point guard of all time. In the real world, virtually all analysts believe Ball is one of the top two point guards in the 2017 draft class, slotting him anywhere from first to third in mock drafts. The fastest player in college basketball completely dominated his high-profile matchup with Ball, carrying the Wildcats to an 86-75 victory in the South Region semifinals, and into a very juicy Elite Eight matchup against North Carolina Sunday.
