The Elite 8 round of March Madness is over and it's time to get ready for the Final Four on Saturday. Join me as I update capper's record and provide my thoughts on next round.

I've been keeping track of how all 4 cappers are doing in the NCAA Tournament so far and here are their records ahead of 2017 March Madness Final Four:

Jason (West): 8-1-6Jay (Midwest): 6-8Doug (South): 3-1-10Ross (East): 3-10

 

On the right side of the bracket, Jason has an 8-1-6 record in his West Region picks while Ross went 3-10 in the East.

Our bracket's left side has Jay ahead with a 6-8 record in his Midwest region picks while Doug went 3-1-10 in the East.

Overall Jason leads everyone with eight winning plays.

 

  South Carolina vs. Gonzaga

Jason's Picks: Gonzaga -6.5

I agree with Jason taking Gonzaga -6.5 in the Final Four. South Carolina's run in the NCAA Tournament has been incredible and they have a tough defense but Gonzaga's experience will be the difference here. I like Gonzaga to win and barely cover in what should be a tough game.

 

   Oregon vs North Carolina

Jay's Picks: North Carolina -4.5

This will be a fun to watch game between two teams with explosive offenses and a lot of talent; however, their defenses have done an amazing job and this is a high total. The Oregon defense was able to limit the potent Kansas offense to just 60 points and North Carolina is giving up just 70.3 points per game in the NCAA Tournament. I'm 'under' 152 here.
