FT Roundup: Gamecocks Chop Down DukeBy Kelly Sanders Mar 21, 2017
The dormitory at 650 Lincoln, where many of South Carolina's athletes live, was just as excited as the rest of campus after the Gamecocks 88-81 upset victory over Duke in the NCAA Tournament on Sunday night. This time, their attempt at a tying 3 never had a chance.
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.
The ACC crown erased any lingering doubt of a Duke team that had incredible peaks but severely daunting valleys. He's not a traditional point guard, but Duke's offense seems to thrive when the ball runs through Allen, as his ability to shoot and set up his teammates by attacking off the bounce add multiple weapons in coach Krzyzewski's motion offense. "We're in it, why not win it?"
With the win against Marquette, Martin did what Eddie Fogler and Dave Odom couldn't and brought home an NCAA tournament win to Columbia. "You all keep talking about expectations".
For many people, this means their bracket is just about dead. "Because they're here and it's March Madness, they find an excuse to bet a game". 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.
The Blue Devils, a popular pick for a deep run based on its fast finish, fell to SC 88-81 on Sunday night, capping a miserable opening weekend for the ACC. Brunner put up a prayer and missed wide as time expired to give the Gamecocks a three point win, advancing to the Sweet 16.
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.
"Yeah, I thought about that, that it could be the end", Jones said of the moment. Maybe guard Grayson Allen also turns pro after his distraction-filled junior year.

That law is widely viewed as anti-LBGT and has cost the state ACC and NCAA Tournaments, the NBA All-star game, jobs and economic development. This year, he has slowly built a Sweet 16 team in SC based around Thornwell and great defense.
"It's nothing that we weren't able to accomplish, it's what they were able to accomplish and what they stopped us from doing".
Considering the Gamecocks beat the Duke Blue Devils, it's hard to not get caught up in that kind of talk.
Four players are averaging at least 9.8 points per game for SC, they are: Thornwell (21.0), PJ Dozier (13.6), Duane Notice (10.1) and Chris Silva (9.8) per game.
Both teams knocked down a copious amount of free throws, with SC finishing 27 for 32 and Duke 27 for 29.
"South Carolina fans can be really annoying", said Duke Fan Ariel Reaves.
"We're not satisfied with winning one game, or this game", Thornwell said.
Freshman Miles Wilson scored 22 points as the Mountaineers (20-16), who edged New Orleans in a First Four matchup on Tuesday, gave the defending champions all they could handle in the first half. "The shots just didn't fall today". Even down to the final game, Allen, who entered the season a returning starter, was coming off the bench after nursing an ankle injury.
