INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana — Gonzaga’s countdown to perfection has ticked to two.
The Bulldogs are back in the Final Four, two wins from becoming the first undefeated team since the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers.
And, after all those upsets, the March Madness apex in the Hoosier State will be a high-seeded affair.
Gonzaga is a No. 1 seed. So is Baylor. Houston, a 2.
The final spot, decided late Tuesday, goes to UCLA. The Bruins are an 11, but they’re also the all-time leaders in national championships.
Gonzaga will face UCLA, while the two Texas teams - Baylor and Houston - will square off in the Final Four.
Gonzaga has won two of three against the Bruins, though they’ve split their two meetings in the NCAA Tournament. UCLA won a regional semifinal in 2006 and the Bulldogs returned the favor in the 2015 regional semifinals.
