Just like that, only four teams remain.

After an exciting weekend that saw multiple buzzer beaters and some dynamite basketball, the Final Four is set. On the one side, Gonzaga reached its first Final Four and will play South Carolina, the biggest underdog of the tournament and arguably in tournament history.

On the other side of the draw, UNC stunned Kentucky at the buzzer to reach the Final Four for the second time in as many years. They’ll take on Oregon, who quietly dominated Kansas in the Elite Eight. (Kansas fans know too well what it’s like to fall in the Elite Eight, unfortunately…)

Chances are, by now your bracket is completely busted. But that’s ok! Once your bracket is ruined, the only thing you have to worry about is enjoying the games.

To get yourself ready for the rest of the Final Four, and then the Championship Game, we compiled our favorite pictures from the tournament.

Enjoy the rest of the tournament!
