NCAA Tournament: 5 Players To Watch In South Carolina vs Baylor

25 March, 2017, 00:48 | Author: Essie Rivera

LAST MEETING: Baylor won, 69-65, at Columbia, SC on November 18, 2014.

If you're SC - which rode an emotional wave to swamp Duke with 65 second-half points in Greenville on Sunday - you have to feel pretty good about the opportunity that presents itself.

Senior guard Sindarius Thornwell could be the game's biggest X-factor as he averages 21.4 points per game and he could get hot and help the Gamecocks pull off yet another upset. The Gamecocks are now 5-5 over their last 10 games but are still only 3-7 at the betting window over that span. (7-0) will minimize his impact on the game, especially driving to the basket. It was Coach K. And I didn't even know him back then. "He's just a great player". "It's important to me that these players know that".

Thanks to his father, we're watching Ball more closely than we would've been. He's a close friend.

Added Wainright, "They do a great job feeding him the ball in his spots that he likes the ball. And just losing was just not fun for us". "And we have listened to him all season, and don't (plan to) stop now".

I know these two teams are defensive minded and this game has the potential to be very ugly.

The game wasn't just a big stage in a metaphorical sense, either.

"I wanted somebody with a coaching background who has lived the life of our coaches", Sankey said.

You get those guys by keeping them here in the South, but they see us as football schools and we lose guys right under our nose. According to Fanatics, a large online retailer of licensed sports apparel, SC merchandise sales have increased by 320%, the largest spike for merchandise sales of teams that advanced to the Sweet Sixteen.

Baylor is also one of the best rebounding teams in the nation as their rebounding margin of 9.1 per game ranks second in the country. SC was even worse late in the season, losing six of nine games headed into the tournament.

What: No. 3 Baylor vs. It's no secret that he's Sean Miller's best player and any more advancements in the tournament will have to come from him producing.

"So now you go to this game, and they're a different team, we're a different team", Mulkey said. We will preview Baylor tomorrow and an expanded preview on Washington on Friday.

Frank Martin leads SC into a Sweet 16 NCAA Tournament game Friday night against Baylor after his Gamecocks eliminated Duke last weekend. The Baylor Bears are shooting 35.6 percent from beyond the arc and 72.1 percent from the free throw line.

Now, for the second time in four years, three teams from the conference have reached the Sweet 16. The top five markets for USC sales are Charlotte, Atlanta, Columbia, New York City and Charleston.

Coach Dawn Staley's women's team, making its fourth straight trip to the Sweet 16, travels 2,637.9 miles to northern California to play a team from CT - the Quinnipiac Bobcats - on Saturday. Getting good looks on the interior and having success in the post are both imperative for the Bears tonight if they are going to win. (10.3 ppg, 2.4 rpg); F Maik Kotsar 6-10 Fr. (5.8 ppg, 4.9 rpg); F Chris Silva 6-9 So.

BAY: Johnathan Motley (17.3 ppg), Manu Lecomte (12.3), Jo Lual-Acuil Jr.
