The Gonzaga Bulldogs survived a furious second-half rally by the South Carolina Gamecocks to move on to their first national championship game.

South Carolina scored 16 straight points to take a 67-65 lead with just over seven minutes to play. Zach Collins answered with a 3-pointer to put Gonzaga back in the lead. The Bulldogs never looked back.

Gonzaga advances to Monday night's title game.

Gonzaga will play the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Tar Heels beat the Oregon Ducks 77 to 76.

You can watch the game on KBOI TV. Coverage begins at 6:30 p.m.
