Gonzaga made them pay, and denied the Musketeers their program's first trip to the Final Four.
And with that, the monkey on Mark Few's back is now gone.

No. 1 seed Gonzaga beat No. 11 Xavier 83-59 in the West Region final, while No. 3 OR defeated No. 1 Kansas 74-60 in the Midwest Region final.
Gonzaga head coach Mark Few and his players celebrate. He goes left and he gets to the rim and he's athletic and he's long. The Zags have routinely been dubbed overrated for beating up on teams in a weak conference and failing to reach the Final Four. At 36-1, Gonzaga has become a national power.
Williams-Goss was one of three transfers, along with Johnathan Williams (Missouri) and Jordan Mathews (California), in the Gonzaga starting lineup.

Their bid for the program's first Final Four ran into a buzz saw. In the first half, it could settle for being a borderline unstoppable offense, one built around Karnowski's incredible post passing, Williams' nonstop spring, savvy understanding of how best to break down Xavier's tricky zone looks and, above all, loads of perimeter shooting. Once Gonzaga got rolling, the Musketeers had no answer. Consider, they were coming off a season in which they reached as high as No. 4 in the coaches poll, knocked off the No. 1 team in the country and eventual national champs, and gained all types of national publicity.
"I wanted to be at a college where I was comfortable, where the coaches wanted me, where I could trust them and develop as a player", he said.

In the second half, for good measure, Gonzaga chose to re-assume its true defensive form, and promptly demoralized the Musketeers, who scored 20 points in the final 20 minutes. "We've certainly been good enough that time to get there and we just didn't get it done".
