Gamecocks Chop Down Duke — FT Roundup

Pelzman: Grayson Allen adds supersub label to villain tag

"That's the toughest defense we've played against all year". Coach Dawn Staley said doctors were looking at it after the game and she had no prognosis. Dawn Staley's solution to this featured a four-guard lineup, and the high-paced offense couldn't be stopped.

The Gamecocks rushed to their fans when things were over, celebrating one of the biggest wins in program history. SC has been a No. 1 seed four years in a row, winning its openers by an average of 34 points. The diminutive point guard - along with future National Basketball Association forward Austin Croshere and Derrick Brown - took down a Duke team that had big names like Jeff Capel, Steve Wojciechowski and Trajan "Alaskan Assassin" Langdon.

Jones finished with 14 points off three 3-pointers and Jackson 12 with two 3s. Holmes grabbed the rebound, missed her first shot, grabbed the rebound then made the second to seal the win. In wins over Winthrop (76-64) and Middle Tennessee State (74-65), Butler controlled the pace of the game and made right at 50 percent of its shots, while dishing out 31 assists and turning it over just 22 times. SC trailed 39-33 going into the half.

"I will cheer for them, but only if that means we'll play them in the championship game", said Raegan.

"They outplayed us", Wright said. Just as they had in their first-round victory Friday over Marquette, the Gamecocks fell down by 10 points and turned everything around with a second-half blitz. Chris was the difference in the second half.

Since the NCAA went to seeding in 1985, No. 1 seeds are 130-0 against No. 16s. Both schools have been upset by teams more than one seeding away the same number of times. Doniyah Cliney stole the ball and took it uncontested to the rim at the end of the third quarter, and the crowd went ballistic. For the 13th game in a row, Kentucky's fabulous freshmen had their hands all over another win.

Even when SC found open space, its inability to knock down wide open shots at every level of the court made a furious comeback like the one that transpired seem nearly impossible.

Penn State Faces Pivotal Matchup in Opening Round of Big Ten Tournament
The senior's three-point play with 34.6 seconds before halftime sent MSU into the locker room leading, 38-27. Ward's jump ball foul - something that basically never happens - threw a wrench into things early.

Facing the end of their season and, for much of the roster, the potential end of their college career, the players fought tears as they answered questions from the media.

A'ja Wilson put the Gamecocks in front by scoring off an offensive rebound with 46.8 seconds left.

I hang a lot of this on Coach K. Clearly the Grayson Allen issue was a major distraction for the team.

What was truly going to determine whether this year would be a special one for the conference was the play of Arkansas and SC. Led by Sophie Brunner, the Sun Devils took the quarter 24-14 to hold a 39-33 halftime lead. From there, the Sun Devils played the Gamecocks even, trailing 19-15 at the conclusion of the opening period. Here come No. 3 Baylor, No. 4 Florida, No. 7 SC and No. 8 Wisconsin.

Next up is the East Regional at Madison Square Garden where the Gamecocks will face third-seeded Baylor, an 82-78 victor over Southern Cal earlier Sunday.

"The feeling was relief, elation, and thankful that we were on our home court". "We fought all the way through, but their defense gets to you".

The University of SC men's basketball team had a historic weekend at the NCAA tournament in Greenville.
