3/24/2017*S CAROLINA              
S CAROLINA: Last season: 25-9, lost in second round of the NIT.
Nickname: Gamecocks.
Coach: Frank Martin.
Conference: Southeastern.
Who's gone: F Michael Carrera, a first-team all-SEC selection last year, F Mindaugus Kacinas, C Laimonis Chatkevicious, G Marcus Stroman, G Jamall Gregory, F Raymond Doby, F Eric Cobb.
Who's back: G Sindarius Thornwell is the team's top returning scorer at 13.5 points a game and made the all-SEC defensive team, G Duane Notice was named the SEC sixth man of the year.
Who's new: G Tommy Corchiani, G Hassani Gravett, F Khadim Gueye, G Kory Holden, F Sedee Keita, F Maik Kotsar, F Ran Tut.
The Skinny: South Carolina infamously ' and incorrectly ' was sent a text from the NCAA saying it made the NCAA Tournament, then was not picked. The Gamecocks won't have many big bodies as they try to make the tournament for the first time since 2004.
BAYLOR: Last season: 22-12.
Nickname: Bears.
Coach: Scott Drew.
Conference: Big 12.
Who's gone: G Lester Medford, F Taurean Prince, F Rico Gathers.
Who's back: F Johnathan Motley, a preseason All-Big 12 pick who will be looked upon for a bigger role with the departures of Prince and Gathers; G Al Freeman, the top returning scorer with 11.3 points a game; F Ishmail Wainright, who started every game last season; G King McClure.
Who's new: G Manu Lecomte, a transfer from Miami, where he played all 38 games as a sophomore in 2014-15; F Jo Lual-Acuil Jr., a 7-foot junior college transfer with shot-blocking ability. Missed last season for medical reasons, but granted sixth-year waiver from NCAA that gives him two seasons left at Baylor.
The Skinny: After losing their NCAA Tournament opener for the second year in a row, the Bears are still considered an upper-half team in the Big 12. They have several talented guards, and some options to fill the big holes in the frontcourt. Drew has another team capable of getting the school's seventh NCAA bid in 10 years.
Baylor relieved to see South Carolina as opponent

Sometime on Sunday night, the Baylor Bears looked at the East Region of this NCAA Tournament and suddenly had a good feeling about what they saw.

Baylor defeated Southern California in the second round to advance to the Sweet 16 for the fourth time since 2010.

In its previous trips, Baylor was ousted by higher-seeded and Final Four-bound Duke, Kentucky and Wisconsin teams.

But when the dust settled on Sunday night, Baylor found itself as the highest remaining seed in the East after top-seeded Villanova and No. 2 Duke were sent home.

Next up, the Bears (27-7) face seventh-seeded South Carolina (24-10) in the Sweet 16 on Friday evening at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Baylor fans are relieved they don't have meet up with Duke, whom the Gamecocks dismissed from the tournament.

South Carolina shot 63 percent in the second half and raced past the Blue Devils, scoring 65 points in the final 20 minutes to upend Duke 88-81.

The Blue Devils led South Carolina at halftime 30-23 but the Gamecocks got past their jitters over facing Duke in time to steal momentum and the game.

"Our guys were very, very nervous," South Carolina coach Frank Martin said. "This is a new platform. It's the first time in the history of our university that we're going to the Sweet 16. Our guys were nervous to start the game. I was nervous for our guys to start the game. Once the half started to settle down, I was happy with how we were defending."

So now that the Gamecocks have knocked off Duke, will they be able to carry over the momentum against Baylor?

While South Carolina has reached new heights for its basketball program, Baylor's bar is set a little higher.

The Bears were ranked No. 1 in January after winning their first 15 games of the season. Although Baylor only had to defeat the 14th (New Mexico State) and 11th seeds to reach the Sweet 16, the Bears are battled tested this season. Their resume to this point includes victories over three teams that are still alive in this tournament (Oregon, Xavier and West Virginia).

Baylor's feelings about reaching the regional semifinal at MSG are a mixture of excitement and motivation to keep going.

"As a kid you dream about moments like this and for it to be here is a blessing," Bears guard King McClure said. "We don't take it for granted and, like we said in the locker room, we're not done. So we have more work to do, but it's really a blessing to be able to play in the gym that a lot of people don't get the opportunity to play in."

Intangible factors aside, South Carolina will have to find a way to score around Baylor's 6-foot-10 forward Johnathan Motley and 7-footer Jo Lual-Acuil, and defend Motley and a barrage of sharpshooting guards.

Motley is averaging 17 points and 10 rebounds in the tournament, which falls right in line with his season numbers.

South Carolina guard Sindarius Thornwell scored 24 to lead the Gamecocks against Duke, while guard Duane Notice and forward Chris Silva each added 17.

"We're a good offensive team," Martin said. "We're better on defense, but we're a good offensive team and we play together on offense and that's why we're playing next week."
