It was a historic night for SC men's basketball, as the seventh-seeded Gamecocks (23-10) dominated the second half in a 93-73 win over 10th seeded Marquette (19-13) for the program's first NCAA Tournament win since 1973. Now he's doing what only Frank McGuire has done for the Gamecocks by getting them to the Sweet 16. That set the stage for a matchup with No. 2 Duke. And the South Region's No. 1 seed was fortunate to survive a second-round game against Arkansas to get there. When the Gamecocks defeated Marquette on Friday night, it was their first NCAA Tournament victory since 1973.
"We're not satisfied with winning just one game or this game", said USC guard Sindarius Thornwell afterward. "We're in it, why not win it?"
South Carolina's Duane Notice and Chris Silva poured in 27 combined points after halftime as each finished with 17 on the night.
The Blue Devils did not make a basket after Matt Jones' 3-pointer with 5:38 to play, their only points coming on Allen's foul shots in the final minute before the break.
Arizona State never wilted in playing No. 1 seed SC on its home floor in the second round of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament. It's the most physical game we've been in all year. If we lose, it won't be because we couldn't - because they had more people here than we did. "That's how hard they played". The defense tallied six blocks in the first 20 minutes-five came from graduate student Amile Jefferson-and ran SC off the 3-point line as the Gamecocks shot just 3-of-17 from long distance.

Welcome back to South Carolina, March Madness. Duke is a remarkably hateable program, thanks to its consistent legacy of decent teams and its legacy of hateable players, from Bobby Hurley to Grayson Allen. Felder canned a triple from National Basketball Association distance, Silva laid one in and was fouled. Those two stretches, in each of which Duke lost three times in a four-game span, led to the Blue Devils being relegated to the fifth seed in the recent ACC tournament, which they won. "It's the first time in the history of our university that we're going to the Sweet 16".
Thornwell averaged 21.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per game this season and was labeled the "best, unheralded, great player in the United States" by Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski earlier this week. The Blue Devils kept picking up fouls, the Gamecocks kept making free throws, and when Justin McKie threw down a transition dunk with 1:24 remaining, the party was on.
"We don't care who you are, we don't care what your rank is, we're going to play our basketball regardless", Haines said. "But it's really just another tough game for us". "We just couldn't defend her, get the ball out of her hand". "It's just when you come in, my job is to give energy". "We're going to be aggressive and we're going to be attacking, but I also think that we have to understand what a quality possession looks like".
That anger led to a 73-61 demolition of Michigan State in Friday's first round that wasn't almost as competitive as the final score suggests, and that anger led to a repeat performance against the 1-seed South Carolina Gamecocks. The Blue Devils' outside touch offset the poor performance of leading scorer Kennard, who was just 3-of-12 shooting for eight points - snapping a streak of 19 games scoring in double figures.
But Allen, who often can be disarming in his dealings with the media, hardly seemed to be a bad guy while being interviewed after the game.
