South Carolina basketball definitely is getting some national attention now.
The Gamecocks and their upset win against Duke on Sunday night worked its way into Jimmy Fallon’s monologue on The Tonight Show.
“Yesterday was crazy,” Fallon said. “South Carolina pulled off a huge upset. They beat Duke to move onto the Sweet 16. The only question is whether Russia helped.”
South Carolina beat Duke 88-81 on Sunday night, winning two games in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history and advancing to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 44 years.
The Gamecocks face Baylor at 7:29 p.m. Friday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
