Gongzaga tops South Carolina 77-73 to advance to title game

South Carolina scored 16 straight points to take a 67-65 lead with 7:06 to play. Zach Collins replied with a 3-pointer to return Gonzaga on top and the Bulldogs hung on from that point.

Collins, a 7-foot first-year recruit, had an amazing detail line: 14 focuses, 13 bounce back and six pieces in 23 minutes of play. Gonzaga advances to Monday night’s title diversion against the champ of Saturday night’s Oregon-North Carolina game.
