All-American Mark Sears shook off a slow start to shoot 7-of-14 from 3-point distance and score 23 points, and No. 4 seed Alabama topped sixth-seeded Clemson 89-82 on Saturday in the NCAA Tournament West Region final to earn its first trip to the Final Four.

The Crimson Tide shot their way into the Final Four on the strength of a 10-of-15 second-half performance from beyond the arc. Sears was responsible for six of the makes on seven attempts, the last of which, with 1:15 remaining, delivered the dagger to Clemson.

While Clemson fell short of its goal to reach a program-first Final Four, Alabama is headed to the national semifinals for the first time. Alabama will face UConn -- which is looking to become the first repeat national champion since Florida in 2006 and '07 -- next Saturday in Glendale, Ariz.

Being defended by Chase Hunter, who held Arizona All-American Caleb Love to 0-for-9 shooting from 3-point range on Thursday, Sears started on a similar pace with misses on his first four 3-point tries and first seven field-goal attempts overall.

But the Crimson Tide got 10 of Jarin Stevenson's 19 points and eight of Rylan Griffen's 13 in the first half to buoy Alabama until Sears erupted.

He hit his first five 3-point attempts in the second half, smiling and sticking out his tongue with each make on the way to winning the West Regional's Most Outstanding Player.
