FSU, South Carolina set for Elite Eight rematch

For Dozier, the opportunity to play for Martin convinced him SC was the right place for him.

So, no, South Carolina's run isn't anything out of the ordinary.

"I'm the luckiest human being in the world", Martin said after his team rallied from seven down at halftime beat Florida in the Elite Eight over the weekend. She scored eight points in the third quarter after Wilson played just 22 seconds before sitting with her third foul. On Friday, the Gamecocks hammered Baylor by 20 points in the Sweet 16.

The outlier in the Final Four is Under Armour, which represents the Gamecocks. North Carolina at 8:49 p.m.

Imani Wright's basket with 7:12 to play capped a 6-0 burst and pulled Florida State within 60-53, then Gray answered.

So why not an all West Coast championship game between the Bulldogs and Ducks? Brittany Brown stole a pass near midcourt and went all the way for a layup to draw within one possession.

SC won't back down.

Gray made a pair of pretty drives to key a late second-quarter run during which SC hit five of seven shots as the Seminoles took a 40-29 lead into halftime. "They have guys flying all over the court any time you try to get a shot off". I'm never making her cry again for making the wrong choice. But, he attempted to downplay the role previous year will play on this tournament, believing the current generation of players are more experienced and prepared for the spotlight. Florida went 4:32 without a basket.

"It's not just a football conference anymore", Florida's Kasey Hill said.

"We still got our open looks, but they just, I guess they just went farther than what they were in the first half", Leon said.

Robinson said he has to talk with his parents and coaches before deciding whether to return for his senior season or go pro. When they put up a statue of Martin outside Colonial Life Arena, they can just slap a plaque on a 10-foot-high stone box.

While Davis' impact was not unexpected, Harris' performance came from nowhere.

Kentucky avenged a regular-season loss against UCLA in the regional semifinal. Justin Jackson has at least 15 points, five rebounds and three assists in each NCAA tournament game and was a key factor in shutting down the three-point attacks of Butler and Kentucky. We ended up losing by six points.

"Obviously very, very heartbreaking", he said. The Seminoles trailed in the first half, but caught a second wind, advancing with a 66-53 victory. These two have proven themselves to be the nation's two best teams, not just a pair who got on a roll in March.

Florida State started the game shooting 1-7 and never recovered.

A smart passer and a calm presence, Harris had earned the praises of her veteran teammate for her intangibles, but with only 5.2 points per game, Harris hadn't been much of a scoring threat this season.

"They're the best in the country in terms of pressuring you and making you turn it over", Florida coach Mike White said later. "That was the big bottom line".

"One guaranteed team is going to be in the Final Four just because those two are playing each other", Fox said.

The Topeka Capital-Journal: "K-State players aren't afraid to kid with their coach, either".

These two unexpected party crashers will duke it out Sunday at Madison Square Garden for a spot in the Final Four, but no introductions are necessary between the Gamecocks and the Gators, two SEC teams that know each other nearly as well as they know themselves.
