SC earns first NCAA victory in 44 years

SC scored 65 points in the second half (Duke scored 51) to give the Gamecocks an 88-81 win over the Blue Devils, ending Duke's season in the Round of 32.

"I don't think it really hit me yet", said SC sophomore guard PJ Dozier. The efforts couldn't culminate into what Duke had its sights set on at the beginning of the season. The Gamecocks defeated the Arizona State Sun Devils 71-68 in a close battle.too close for the No 1-seeds liking.

Thanks to North Carolina's controversial "bathroom bill", the NCAA announced in September that it would move tournament games to other arenas outside of the state.

This year, Greenville was the first of the first- and second-round sites to sell out, with the inclusion of South Carolina, Duke and North Carolina making it the tourney's toughest ticket.

Considering the Gamecocks beat the Duke Blue Devils, it's hard to not get caught up in that kind of talk.

The coach said she was angry that the officials called a foul on a screen on her team, then missed what she said looked like a more obvious similar call against the Gamecocks.

"That's what we play for". If we lose, it won't be because we couldn't - because they had more people here than we did.

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

After shooting just 20 percent in the first half, the Gamecocks (24-10) roared out of the locker room on a 7-0 run keyed by a Notice three-point play.

When the chips were down, Duke didn't have enough in the tank to keep attacking, settling for four straight 3-point attempts during the stretch that the game got away for good.

Welcome back to South Carolina, March Madness.

Miles Bridges scored 22 points to lead ninth-seeded Michigan State (20-15) despite leaving briefly in the first half because of an injury. Felder canned a triple from National Basketball Association distance, Silva laid one in and was fouled.

"It's an opportunity for us", Arkansas head coach Mike Anderson said of the SEC.

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.

The Gamecocks play tough defense, but the Blue Devils have too many weapons and will be too much for SC. "They fed off the crowd, I think, and it gave them a lot of energy".

Chimezie Metu scored 28 points and Bennie Boatwright added 16 for USC (26-10), which was trying to make its first Sweet 16 appearance since 2007. "We got worn down". The Rams face a much bigger challenge against the Ducks, who rolled over Iona 93-77 despite playing their first game without injured forward Chris Boucher.

The Bears won despite Motley's foul trouble.

If you just woke up from a dream in which the dude from "The Dan Band" was singing "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" to the crying Northwestern kid, consider yourself lucky. "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".

Terry Maston scored 19 points and King McClure added 17 and for the Bears (27-7), who advanced to play seventh-seeded SC, which beat second-seeded Duke, in the Sweet 16 in NY. "We thought we could win the game coming out the second half because of shooting so poorly the first half".

But Allen, who often can be disarming in his dealings with the media, hardly seemed to be a bad guy while being interviewed after the game. It's only the second time in NCAA Tournament history that a pair of 30-win teams has played in the second round.

"It just to give the team that extra boost", he said.
