Tears and one last sacrifice in the aftermath of Duke's NCAA loss

Share

A Gamecocks program known largely - and mocked often by some - for its back-to-back NIT championships in 2005 and 2006 is now heading to the world's most famous arena as part of the NCAA's Sweet 16.

Seventh-seeded SC knocked off Duke, one of the tournament favorites, 88-81, with a furious second half where the Gamecocks shot 71% and missed just eight shots.

"We're going to attack them", Thornwell said. Of the five double-digit seeds most likely to win their first games, only Marquette failed to do so.

"You earn your way into that", coach Frank Martin said. SC will play Baylor on Friday in NY in the Sweet 16.

Nevertheless, the Gamecocks then shot an absurd 20-for-28 in the second half, allowing them to jump from 23 first-half points to 65 second-half points - more second-half points than they scored in 10 entire games this season and more second-half points than any team has ever scored against Mike Krzyzewski, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

The Gamecocks' leading scorer was senior Sindarius Thornwell, who finished the night with 24 points, while shooting 6 for 14 from the field and knocking down three three-pointers.

After missing her first five three-point attempts, the lid came off for Bando, whose deep ball sparked a 7-0 run that gave the Ducks a 40-31 lead in the third quarter. Actually, the most physical game we've been in all year.

The Gamecocks have played terrific defense all year long, but they won't be able to hold Baylor under 80 points in this game. After all, seven ACC teams made it to the tournament including Duke, Florida State, Louisville, Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Notre Dame, and Wake Forest.

Both teams missed baskets, and then Wilson put back her own miss to put SC back on top, 69-68. It stretched to double figures shortly after that, and SC endured one final push before the party was on in Greenville. Davis and Doniyah Cliney played outstanding perimeter defense and knocked the ball out of bounds with two seconds left.

"We've done it before".

As per Evan's tweet, the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus would be priced at €799 (approx Rs. 56,255) and €899 (approx Rs. 63,295). Since its primary announcement, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus had been subjects to a number of rumors and speculations.

Dorsey also tied the game with a 3 with 1:45 remaining on the way to 27 points. "The shots just didn't fall today. They'll be goofballs. Their coaches will be knuckleheads and we'll find a way to get it done". The Gamecocks now rank as the third-best defensive team in the nation, according to efficiency numbers originating from college basketball analytics website KenPom.com. When there is noise in the crowd, it gives everyone on the court energy.

The unusual situation arose after the NCAA elected to move all of its championship events outside of North Carolina amid controversy surrounding House Bill 2, transitioning this year's tournament games originally scheduled for Greensboro almost 200 miles southwest. "We were really right there to take it and credit to SC".

"I think he's him, you know?"

Some irate Duke fans took to Twitter following the game last night to blame HB2, and North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, for their team's defeat.

The number was goofy and fun and featured all of the head bopping a fan of the sketch or movie could have wanted. I wouldn't have been able to do this five years ago or ten years ago or 15 years ago.

Duke: The Blue Devils had lived by the 3-pointer much of the season and when those didn't fall in the second half, it surely cost them.
