South Carolina keeps rolling in the NCAA Tournament!
The No. 7 seed Gamecocks crushed No. 3 Baylor 70-50 on Friday night at Madison Square Garden in the Sweet 16 round of the East Region. It continues an incredible run for coach Frank Martin’s team, which is one of the hottest squads left in the tournament. The Gamecocks advance to play either No. 4 Florida or No. 8 Wisconsin on Sunday for a chance to advance to the Final Four.
As expected, the internet had plenty to say about South Carolina’s latest victory. Here’s a sampling of the reaction.
As we all expected, No. 7 South Carolina crushes Baylor to advance to the Elite 8.

South Carolina is college basketball's version of the 1993-94 New York Knicks.

South Carolina (25-10) shot 46 percent and put four players in double figures. Sindarius Thornwell was a beast (24 points, six rebounds).
