The UCLA Bruins under Mick Cronin are headed to the Final Four to take on undefeated Gonzaga this Saturday on (AM 1150 KEIB)
The two teams that were for the final spot in the 2021 Final Four could not have had different paths to their Elite Eight matchup.
Michigan has looked the part of dominant 1 seed, withstanding the loss of Isaiah Livers with excellent play from Hunter Dickinson, Franz Wagner and more to beat their NCAA Tournament opponents — Texas Southern, LSU and Florida State — by an average of 14 points per game. Then there's UCLA, playing its fifth game in nearly two weeks and looking to become just the second-ever First Four team to make it to the Final Four.
In Mick Cronin's second season with the team, he takes them to the Final Four to take on Gonzaga.
