The 2017 Final Four was set on Sunday when North Carolina outlasted Kentucky to claim the final spot for the final weekend. There are a lot of familiar faces for WSU fans among the four teams with Oregon and Gonzaga also advancing. WSU has never played South Carolina. Way to ruin the synergy, Gamecocks.

At the risk of bringing up bad memories, we're going to dive back into the last time the Cougars played North Carolina in the NCAA Tournament.

Q1: What arena did the Cougars play the Tar Heels?

Q2: Name the four players who played in that game and have played in the NBA this season.

Q3: Who scored the first point of the game for WSU?
