Oregon upsets Kansas to make the Final Four

Oregon upsets Kansas to make the Final Four

Another unfamiliar face in the Last Dance! The last time Oregon made the Final Four was 1939, in the very first tournament, and the only reason they made it then is that there were only eight teams to begin with!

(To be fair, they won both of their games in the FF to take home the very first national championship.)

In three recent years, including last year when they had a #1 seed, they won their first three games but lost in the Elite Eight.

  1. The first championship game was in the Northwestern gym. They tore down the bldg, one year later to build an Engineering bldg, and the Northwestern varsity played at a high school for 10 years. That would never happen today, the opposite would happen.
