  • No. 1 seed SC avoids upset against Arizona St

After a first-round victory over Troy on Friday, Duke faces their first test as they take on SC in the Round of 32 in a quasi-road game in Greenville, S.C. We look at some of the x-factors for the Blue Devils tonight as they hope to advance to the Sweet 16.

Baylor will play SC in the Sweet 16 in NY. South Carolina, in its first NCAA Tournament since 2004, is headed to the Sweet 16 for the first time in school history.

"We signed up to put this program in a situation where when it's time to leave we're competing with the best teams in the country".

Three years ago, Wichita State was 35-0 when it lost to Kentucky 78-76 in the second round, crestfallen after Fred Van Vleet's 3-pointer missed at the buzzer.

But that's when two-time Southeastern Conference Player of the Year A'ja Wilson rescued her team.

Marquette, the top three-point shooting team in the nation at 43 percent, connected on 8-of-16 shots from three-point range in a frenetic first half and took a 40-39 lead into the break, but SC took its first lead of the night on its first possession of the second half and shortly after used a 13-0 run for forge an eight-point lead with 14:24 to play. Duke being forced to play in what amounted to a road environment was unique for a No. 2 seed, and especially unique for Duke, but the Blue Devils have nobody to blame but themselves after playing a horrific second half in which their defense collapsed.

Notice has struggled with his shot at times this season, so much that Martin has fielded questions about sitting him down.

"They played a heck of a game", said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. But Gray, a 6-foot guard and transfer from North Carolina, scored 20 of her points in the paint and tied her best rebounding night of her career with eight by halftime. Butler (25-8) will face the Tar Heels Friday at 7:09 p.m. (CBS, WLYV 1450 AM) in Memphis in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament. "They did a great job controlling the tempo in the first half by allowing us to shift the ball east and west rather than north and south". Freshman guard Rakym Felder finished with 15. Villanova along with Gonzaga are two teams that have been doubted all season long as both schools that were No. 1 in the rankings at some point during the regular season. If they keep scoring at the rate they have been, and the Bears continue to get to the foul line (13-of-15 vs USC), then Baylor will be in a position to win.

"We just made shots", said Thornwell, "We got the ball inside. We just weren't able to finish it out".

Villanova: The Wildcats showed why they're champions by stepping up when it counted, shooting 63 percent in the second half. And we got it on the biggest possible stage against the biggest possible opponent. "It definitely is a special time in our lives", Butler fifth-year senior guard Tyler Lewis said of this postseason. "He likes the big stage".

J.P. Pelzman and Jerry Carino analyze Seton Hall's 77-71 loss to Arkansas in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. These Gamecocks are not finished.

The cherry on the wonderful cake that was Sunday night was Thornwell breaking the Duke press by heaving a full court pass to Justin McKie for a flush with under a minute to play. How will the young guys like Jayson Tatum, Frank Jackson, and Harry Giles respond to this kind of situation? Teams are two wins away from a trip to the Final Four in Arizona! It's the most physical game we've been in all year.
