theScore picks out the best stats and facts to surface from the teams in the Final Four before Saturday's action.

406: The last time Gonzaga was on the losing end of a basketball game was February 22, 2020, a couple weeks before the coronavirus pandemic hit North America. It will officially be 406 days since that loss to BYU when the Bulldogs take the court Saturday to face UCLA.

4: UCLA owns the rare distinction of going from the coldest team in the tournament field to one of the hottest. The Bruins somehow lost four straight games to end their season and barely got into the tournament field for a play-in game. Five victories later, UCLA is on the verge of becoming the first No. 11 seed to make the national title game.

256: Baylor, Houston, and Gonzaga are all looking to win the first national championship in school history. The three programs combined have been playing for 256 years without claiming the sport's biggest prize. UCLA is at the opposite end of that spectrum - the Bruins are the winningest program in history with 11 national titles.

1: Only one of the remaining coaches in the NCAA Tournament actually played college basketball. Houston's Kelvin Sampson suited up for UNC Pembroke in the 1970s. Gonzaga's Mark Few attended Oregon but didn't play basketball, while Scott Drew was a student assistant at Butler and UCLA's Mick Cronin coached high school basketball while attending Cincinnati.

48: The total of the seeds Houston faced en route to the Final Four. The Cougars are the first team in tournament history to beat four double-digit seeds on the way to the national semifinals.

5: The last time Gonzaga didn't win at least 30 games in a season was 2015-16. The Bulldogs really struggled that year with only 28 victories. Gonzaga is the first program in NCAA history to put together a five-year run of at least 30 wins.

108: UCLA star Johnny Juzang's point total through five games of the tournament puts him in elite company in the historic program. Only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then Lew Alcindor) scored more for the Bruins in the first five tournament games of his career. Juzang's 28-point performance versus Michigan in the Elite Eight accounted for more than 50% of the team's total.
