It was a big week for Jashaun Agosto, as the freshman not only declared for the 2017 NBA Draft, but he was also the top vote-getter in the Elite Eight of the Freshman of the Year Fan Vote.

CALGARY, Alta. — Two Final Fours were set on the same day.

On Sunday, the North Carolina Tar Heels and South Carolina Gamecocks rounded out this year’s Final Four, joining both the Gonzaga Bulldogs and Oregon Ducks in Phoenix.

With just a handful of games left in the 2016-17 season, the end is in sight.

However, the season isn’t completely over for those programs who have played their last game. The College Court Report Freshman of the Year Fan Vote is still in full swing, and the field has been trimmed down to its own Final Four.

This past week, in the Elite Eight, fans came out in full force once again to support their favourite first-year players from across the country. Over 29,000 votes were cast in the round across all three platforms (online polls, Facebook, and Twitter).

Two players, and their respective athletic departments, attempted to make a big comeback over the weekend, but fell short in the end.

Below, you can see the results for all four match-ups from the Elite Eight. Continue reading College Court Report Freshman of the Year Fan Vote: Elite Eight Results
