NEW YORK (AP) South Carolina added a missing piece to its rich basketball history.

Washington hires Dollar as assistant

Gonzaga players took different journeys

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Like a top soccer team, Gonzaga built a title contender by dipping into the transfer market.

Point guard Nigel Williams-Goss arrived from Washington, forward Johnathan Williams from Missouri and guard Jordan Mathews from California.


Kansas falls short of Final Four again

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Frank Mason III and Landen Lucas will be lost to graduation, Josh Jackson is likely headed to the NBA, and very little about Kansas next season will look remotely the same.

That only makes things harder.


Indiana hires Dayton's Miller as coach

Fred Glass wanted to hire a proven winner for Indiana's next coach. The athletic director didn't have to wait long - or travel far to find what he was looking for.

On Saturday, less than 24 hours after UCLA coach Steve Alford pulled his name out of the sweepstakes, Glass announced he had hired Archie Miller from Dayton. Miller replaces Tom Crean, who was fired March 16 after missing the NCAA Tournament five times in nine seasons.


Ball going pro, Alford staying at UCLA

LOS ANGELES (AP) Lonzo Ball is leaving and Steve Alford is staying. The expectations at UCLA remain the same.

Ball said he planned to enter the NBA draft after the Bruins lost to Kentucky in the Sweet 16 on Friday night, dashing their national title hopes. The freshman phenom helped UCLA to a 31-5 record while averaging 14.6 points, 6.0 rebounds and 7.6 assists.


Gonzaga, Oregon give West Coast flair

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Tyler Dorsey had just led Oregon to its first Final Four in nearly eight decades when he looked into a TV camera and passed along a very simple message to all those East Coast fans.

The ones who are often asleep before the Ducks have even taken the floor.


Xavier's tournament run ends vs. Gonzaga

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) The biggest celebration for Xavier came on a shot that didn't end up counting.

That was the kind of day it was for the Musketeers, whose memorable March run to the third Elite Eight in school history ended with a lopsided 83-59 loss to No. 1 seed Gonzaga on Saturday in the West Regional final.


Wisconsin in transition as seniors leave

Zak Showalter and Ethan Happ walked quietly down the middle of the court, arm in arm, away from Florida's celebration of a last-second victory.

This NCAA Tournament loss is going to sting for a while for the Wisconsin Badgers.
