Final Four Set
NUNDATED (AP) - The NCAA Men's Final Four is set, with both North and South Carolina in the mix. The No. 1 Tar Heels have advanced this far for the 20th time. And the seventh-seeded Gamecocks have earned their first berth in the national semifinals. South Carolina will take on Gonzaga in the first semifinal Saturday at Glendale, Arizona. North Carolina will play Midwest champ Oregon in Arizona.

 

Huskies Advance
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Everything UConn lost to graduation made another Final Four even more special for Geno Auriemma and his Huskies. Napheesa Collier scored 28 points, Gabby Williams had 25 and the Huskies advanced to the national semifinals for the 10th straight year with a 90-52 victory against Oregon on Monday night. Auriemma said, "There were a lot of question marks going into the season and maybe they didn't have any in their own minds. They seemed to answer every single one of those questions. They deserve to be in the Final Four. They earned it." The Huskies' 111th consecutive victory moved Auriemma past Pat Summitt for the most NCAA Tournament wins. Auriemma now has 113 and counting. Next up for top-seeded UConn (36-0) is Mississippi State on Friday night in Dallas. It is just two wins away from a fifth consecutive title and 12th overall.

South Carolina Tops Florida State
STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - Kaela Davis scored 23 points and A'ja Wilson added 16 and top-seeded South Carolina held off No. 3 seed Florida State 71-64 in a furious finish Monday night to win the Stockton Regional. Davis scored immediately off the tip and again on a timely, brilliant left-handed drive with 1:42 to go. Allisha Gray drove her way to 11 points for South Carolina (31-4) - and Dawn Staley's Gamecocks are back in the Final Four for the first time since 2015 still chasing the program's first NCAA championship.

Raiders Heading To Las Vegas
PHOENIX (AP) - Another NFL time is packing up and moving. Well, not just yet.
The Oakland Raiders on Monday won the approval of the league to relocate to Las Vegas.
The vote was a foregone conclusion after the league and Raiders were not satisfied with Oakland's proposals for a new stadium, and Las Vegas stepped up with $750 million in public money. Bank of America also is giving Raiders owner Mark Davis a $650 million loan, further helping convince the owners to allow the third team relocation in just over a year.
The Rams moved from St. Louis to Los Angeles in 2016, and in January the Chargers relocated from San Diego to LA. The Raiders likely will play two or three more years in the Bay Area before their $1.7 billion stadium near the Las Vegas strip is ready.
Las Vegas, long taboo to the NFL because of its legalized gambling, also is getting an NHL team this fall, the Golden Knights.
