Sizzling second half shooting helps SC upset Duke

Baylor's Johnathan Motley celebrates a New Mexico State turnover as Tanveer Bhullar, Ishmail Wainright and Terry Maston watch in the second half of a first-round game in the men's NCAA college basketball tournament in Tulsa Okla. Frid

Troy (22-15) was making just the second NCAA Tournament appearance in school history and hopes this year's piece of March Madness stokes future excitement.

Meanwhile, the women's squad pulled out in a thriller on their home court, defeating the Arizona State Sun Devils.

Arizona State (20-13) scored 11 straight points to take a 68-67 lead with two minutes to go, but Wilson put back her own miss with 46.8 seconds to go that gave SC (29-4) a 69-68 advantage.

Brunner led Arizona State with 20 points and nine rebounds. "But just come in and bring energy". Coach Dawn Staley said doctors were looking at it after the game and she had no prognosis. The former SC star battled through injuries his first two seasons in the National Football League but has since proven to be worth the lofty price for Houston. Dawn Staley's solution to this featured a four-guard lineup, and the high-paced offense couldn't be stopped. Two 3-pointers in a row from the Gamecocks sent the crowd to their feet and forced the Sun Devils to take a time out.

DePaul (27-8) was led by Jessica January, who scored 18 points. Tatum had 15 points and shot 6-for-12 from the field, but he had five turnovers and never looked comfortable going one-on-one, where he may be the best isolation scorer in the country.

Baylor proved in a hard-fought battle against No. 11 USC that it's more than just a one-man team. "They're taking me for a heck of a ride right now".

"[South Carolina] played a heck of a game", Krzyzewski said after the game.

What channel is the Baylor-South Carolina on?

"We just made sure we stuck to our process and kept out composure". "It disrupted them", said coach Staley. But behind Thornwell's outside shooting and Silva's dominance underneath, SC rallied to win two NCAA games for the first time in 44 years. "We didn't have the speed we needed to attack them and we changed that in the second half".

Since the NCAA went to seeding in 1985, No. 1 seeds are 130-0 against No. 16s.

For fans who didn't make the trip, many flocked to bars throughout Charlotte, transforming normally barren Sunday night crowds into big business. Davis rallied, and Bianca Cuevas-Moore had four steals for the Gamecocks. "We're in it, why not win it?"

Keef Morris has missed the last two games for the Wizards with an illness and his status for tonight is also unknown. Washington 2-1 Both teams have held serve thus far as they get set for the final game in the season series tonight.

It's been a long couple years for SC fans watching hated rival Clemson rekindle its football brand dominance.

Coach Charli Turner Thorne got a technical for the Sun Devils, allowing Davis to get two more from the free-throw line.

"I'm disappointed that we didn't win tonight", he said, "But at the end of the season, I want my guys to either be crying because we've lost or crying because we've just won".

"At least I called a timeout", Turner Thorne said. SC fans, as they should have, overtook the building.

But the Sun Devils had one final push in them. The Gamecocks are already playing without Alaina Coates.

Thronwell hit two big 3s in the opening minutes of the second half to drive SC to an offensive frenzy.

And with this coming in the East Region, it's possible Florida, if they beat Wisconsin, could face SC in the Elite Eight if the Gamecocks beat Baylor.

"The feeling was relief, elation, and thankful that we were on our home court". His players never came close to living up to their potential and that falls squarely on his shoulders.

Given its history, and given its rough finish to the regular season (3-6 in its final nine games), SC is the most surprising name of all, the team that only 4.8 percent of participants in ESPN's Tournament Challenge picked to advance to the Sweet 16.
