NCAA tournament: Duke, Louisville bounced from tourney

"Not to take any credit away from SC". Notice finished 6 of 8 with two 3-pointers in the SC win.

SC shot just 20 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes, making 7 of 35 shots.

SC routed UNC Asheville 90-40.

Yet as the Gamecock defense stayed physical in the second half, the Blue Devils' faded into a haze of foul trouble, blank stares and retreating feet as it has so many times this season-and their opponent took advantage. How will the young guys like Jayson Tatum, Frank Jackson, and Harry Giles respond to this kind of situation? Louisville had a lead in the second half and went into an offensive drought, something that we have seen time and time again with them.

The South Carolina Gamecocks (23-10) are coming from a 93-73 win over Marquette in which Sindarius Thornwell scored 29 points in 10-for-19 shooting from the field and 6-for-7 from the line. USC now moves on to the Sweet 16 in NY - home of Frank McGuire, Kevin Joyce, Brian Winters and so many Gamecocks luminaries who did things no other USC squad had done until Sunday night. SC is stingy on defense, so Baylor can not be one-dimensional.

No. 1 overall seed Villanova and No. 2 seeds Duke and Louisville are out of the NCAA Tournament - bounced in the first weekend and likely busting your bracket in the process. Despite the Blue Devils' best attempts, they couldn't put down the Gamecocks.

Chris Silva and Duane Notice pumped in 17 apiece and Rakym Felder provided 15 points for SC (24-10).

Arizona State: Arizona State junior forward Sophie Brunner had 10 rebounds to six points, but suffered an apparent left ankle injury at the 4:27 mark in the fourth quarter and did not return. Then Allen tripped another player and was suspended for the team's New Years Eve loss to Virginia Tech. And so I just told them - I told them I love them and I'm proud of them. Baylor also showed its inside strength in the scoring column, moving away from the 3-pointers it shot so frequently in the first half and making 13 of 21 shots inside the arc in the second half.

Florida State 77, Missouri 55: Shakayla Thomas scored 20 points and third-seeded Florida State advanced to the Sweet 16 for the third straight season with a victory over No. 6 seed Missouri.

The Sweet 16 field is set and games resume on Thursday. And then they're all committed to it. "They were able to make plays and catch up".

That toll manifested itself in the foul column.

Duke lost, quite simply, because their roster is - was - flawed, and the individual talent amongst their ranks was not enough to overcome it. Duke couldn't match them.

In the locker room, Jones sat dry-eyed, the lone Blue Devil not giving in to emotion.

A'ja Wilson led her team with 21 points and 11 rebounds, but the unsung hero of the night was Kaela Davis who had 20 points and some vital plays during the final stretch of the game.

The second-seeded Blue Devils (28-9) fell 88-81 to seventh-seeded SC (24-10), who benefited from 65 second-half points and 18 Duke turnovers.

"It's tough", Allen said. "Once we do that, we always come back in the huddle in the second half and just congregate", Trojans guard Elijah Stewart said.

Duke guard Derryck Thornton (12) and Duke guard Grayson Allen (3) react as they walk to the bench for a time out during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament against Notre Dame, Thursday, March 10, 2016, in Washington. Offensively, Baylor has been led by Johnathan Motley (17.3 ppg, 9.9 rpg, 2.4 apg, 1.1 bpg), Manu Lecomte (12.3 ppg, 1.8 rpg, 3.9 apg), Al Freeman (9.5 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 1.2 apg), and Jo Lual-Acuil Jr.

There was Grayson Allen's weird behavior in tripping a third opponent in two seasons that earned him a one-game suspension.
