Drink it in folks, the South Carolina Gamecocks are in the Sweet 16 and you’re about to watch it. Live from Madison Square Garden the No. 7 seed Sindarellas will square off with the No. 3 seeded Baylor Bears for a shot at either the Florida Gators or the Wisconsin Badgers in the Elite Eight. Enough of this talk of “this is the match up no one wanted” — screw that gabble.
The national media can get over the fact they’re not getting Villanova/Duke. The comments are open, so talk about whatever it is your bleeding Garnet Hearts desire. Remember, the game is on TBS with first tip set for 7:29 ET.
