Half of the Final Four field is set. After Gonzaga's domination of Xavier in the West Region, Oregon put together an incredible performance to upset Tournament favorite Kansas.

Oregon held an 11-point lead at the half, and for a while, looked like it would run away with the Elite Eight game against the Jayhawks, but KU pulled within six points with under three minutes left. However, ice cold shooting for the entire game ultimately did in Kansas. The Jayhawks shot just 35.6-percent from the field, and finished the game 5-of-25 from three point range.

Guard Tyler Dorsey was the big star on the offensive end for Oregon, scoring 27 points on 9-of-13 shooting, including 6-of-10 from three-point range. Jordan Bell, however, may have had the biggest impact, registering eight massive blocks on the defensive end to go with 11 points and 13 rebounds.

National Player of the Year favorite Frank Mason did what he could to keep KU in the game in the first half, with 17 points at the break, but finished with 21, while Devonte' Graham was a virtual no-show with just three points. Josh Jackson finished with 10 points, but after a scoreless first half spent in foul trouble, he never really imposed his will on the game the way he had through the first three rounds of the Tournament.

Even more impressive: Oregon did it without big man Chris Boucher, a key player for the Ducks all year. He is out for the NCAA Tournament with a torn ACL.

With the win, Oregon advances to Phoenix to face the winner of tomorrow's awesome North Carolina vs. Kentucky showdown.
