1 to done: Duke looks to who stays, who leaves

Welcome to the lone topsy-turvy bracket after losses by No. 1 overall seed Villanova and No. 2 seed Duke. Both programs have enjoyed moderate success in recent years, but they faced two true blue bloods in No. 1 North Carolina and No. 2 Duke, respectively. Baylor has won 4 of their last 5 games and also have one of the better defenses left in the NCAA Tournament as the Bears rank 21st in scoring defense, 2nd in rebound margin, and 22nd in defensive FG%.

"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". "We're in it, why not win it?"

On the season, SC basketball is averaging 72.1 points, 36.3 rebounds and 12.6 assists per game.

Duke had a ten point lead in the first half and had a seven point lead in the second half only to see SC go on an offensive flurry and scoring spree in route to putting up 65 points.

"I think we were hitting our strides at the end of the year". Washington fired Lorenzo Romar which makes sense given the bad record Washington has had in recent years, but with so many top recruits verbally committing to Washington for next year, does it really make a lot of sense to send him packing and potentially lose these recruits?

For fans who didn't make the trip, many flocked to bars throughout Charlotte, transforming normally barren Sunday night crowds into big business.

North Carolina led by 17 points after a dominating start, blew that lead and trailed 65-60 with about 3 1/2 minutes left then came up with a response befitting its veteran experience.

What channel is the Baylor-South Carolina on?

Brunner had the highest-scoring game of her NCAA Tournament career with 20 points. Felder canned a triple from National Basketball Association distance, Silva laid one in and was fouled. That led to Duke and coach Mike Krzyzewski.

It began to feel destined, especially after Dozier's fall-away jumper with the shot clock running down danced all around the rim - and fell in, for a nine-point lead with 6:23 remaining.

With a deeper bench and plenty of support from a rowdy Gamecock crowd that traveled a little more than 100 miles to what was supposed to be a neutral-site game, SC never gave the Blue Devil defense a chance to catch its breath.

"The time on the clock, it felt like an eternity was going by", Notice said. I wish I could keep coaching them this year.

Maite Cazorla added 17 points and Lexi Bando finished with 14 points to help OR (22-13) become the first No. 10 seed in a decade to reach the round of 16.

It might seem like this season got away from the Blue Devils in Greenville, but it happened long before Sunday night.

"This was a game that was there for the taking if we would have executed down the stretch", Enfield said. "It's the most physical game we've been in all year. We just couldn't defend her, get the ball out of her hand". It went through my mind, but you try not to let it affect you cheering on your teammates. "And it is thankful, thankful that we got a chance to play at our place because I don't think the results, and I say this a lot, I think the results would be different if we were at another gym". Kennard said his team has been in hard environments before "and we've won games like that".

UNC made headlines in its win over Arkansas because there were a couple of questionable calls late in the second half that went against the Razorbacks.

The final seconds were a celebration.
