Gonzaga crushes Xavier, reaches first Final Four

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN JOSE, Calif. -- As the clock wound down to secure an elusive trip to the Final Four, Gonzaga coach Mark Few hugged star guard Nigel Williams-Goss as he left the floor. Then he allowed himself a good cry.

"Tears of joy," Few said. "It makes your heart warm, 365 degrees Celsius ... maybe it's Fahrenheit. It's been awhile since I was in class."

Former Cinderella-turned-powerhouse Gonzaga powered its way into its first Final Four with decisive 83-59 victory over Xavier in the NCAA West Regional final on Saturday at the SAP Center.
