The South Carolina Gamecocks are headed to the Final Four. When they arrive in Glendale, the Gonzaga Bulldogs of the West Coast Conference will be there to greet them. Like the Gamecocks, the Zags are in the Final Four for the first time ever and are one of the best rags to riches stories in college basketball history.

With five days remaining until this showdown in Arizona, let’s take a look at the tale of the tape between these two clubs.
