Phoenix, Arizona (WCSC/AP) -

On Saturday North Carolina defeated Oregon in the last Final Four game.

North Carolina dominated with a score of 77-76.

The Tarheels will advance to the championship game.

North Carolina and Gonzaga pulled out hard-fought wins in the semifinals to set the stage for the title game. North Carolina has five national titles, and Gonzaga is making its first appearance in a championship game.

The Final Four brought the largest crowd to attend a sporting event at University of Phoenix Stadium. Organizers say attendance was 77,612. That is dramatically more fans than the building typically holds for Arizona Cardinals football games. Average attendance for Cardinals games is about 64,000. The Cardinals have sold out every game since the building opened in 2006.

This is a developing story. Check back for details.
