South Carolina coach describes team's March Madness win over Duke

The team's unquestioned strength is its defense, ferocious and relentless and frustrating for any and all opponents.

The Gamecocks also helped their cause beating Quinnipiac 35-18 on the boards, one of coach Tricia Fabbri's biggest concerns coming into the game.

"We couldn't, really couldn't buy a basket", Baylor forward Johnathon Motley told reporters. South Carolina's dream run ends tonight.

It's easy to see the seed next to Baylor's name on the TBS graphics, easy to remember that the Bears, at one point during the season, were ranked No. 1 in the country, and think that this Baylor team was destined for this kind of success. They blew by No. 16 seed University of North Carolina Asheville in their first round game, winning 90-40.

Interestingly, Florida's in the same spot Kansas State was.

"We didn't settle for just regular shots", Wallace said. "But SEC basketball's pretty special as well".

"It's the toughest defense we've played against all year", Krzyzewski said. He is averaging 25.6 points in this tournament. Splitting time at power forward and center, Motley really impressed this year based on his ability to clear up several weaknesses in his game.

Next up is a date with No. 1 seed SC (29-4) at 1 p.m. Saturday. "They're an extension of their coach".

Fans say regardless of the game's outcome, they're proud of their team. "We just have to continue to do us". Rebounds and second-chance opportunity shots can make all the difference in the game.

Purdue vs. Kansas - Five things to watch for
With Swanigan at 6-9, 250 pounds and averaging 18.5 points and 12.6 rebounds a game , Kansas is sure to run into some issues. They talked to Michigan State's Tom Izzo, then Missouri coach Mike Anderson, Pitt's Jamie Dixon and Butler's Brad Stevens.

Motley and Lual-Acail were regularly swallowed up in an array of swatting, probing limbs, giving them practically no room to work. "Obviously they are here for a reason and they have earned every single bit of that. Then we took their best punch and absorbed it and went back to punching".

Allisha Gray, who's status for the game as in question with a leg injury, played 27 minutes and showed no ill-effects from her injury. The numbers spoke for themselves: Baylor shot 30 percent overall and 23 percent from three.

It's also something of a daunting one for the fourth-seeded Gators, who are favored over seventh-seeded SC but are anything but a lock. "We still weren't there, but I thought we were starting to do things the right way again. So we have our hands full all day tomorrow". Ishmail Wainwright tops in steals with 1.8 per game. However, he was held scoreless and only attempted one field goal. He led all scorers with 24 points. "The best bet is to go inside-out and just move the ball around until you get an open outside shot". They're well-coached. I don't know if we are or not, but we'll see. "But there's no doubt in our mind that we can pull off another upset". The seven-point deficit matched the Huskies' largest this season. It's more likely to be a low scoring game, but Florida won't be surprised by the Gamecocks as they are more familiar with their game style, so they might push the scoring to over. "This opportunity, it's incredible".

The Lady Bears, the top seed in the Oklahoma City Regional, are now headed back to the arena less than 300 miles from their Waco campus to play Louisville in an NCAA Sweet 16 rematch Friday night. Very impressed by way they never let up late.

As the both schools are playing in the SEC conference, they are no strangers to each other.

He's also capable of getting to the free throw line. Catholic school girl like herself? "I heard from everybody that I've probably ever met", he said. The score is 9 nothing and Quinnipiac calls a time out.

And it's not just the men's team.

3 As for players, experience is on eighth-seeded Wisconsin's side as seniors Nigel Hayes, Bronson Koenig and Zak Showalter each have played total of 14 NCAA tournament games, including two Final Fours and national title game. No other league has more than one team remaining. "And I look up to her as a role model for a leader". The game will be broadcast on TBS at 7:29 p.m.
