  • Love seeing Duke go down. Wish we could have pulled it off and shut out the ACC.

    Does seem to justify NCAA seeding, though.

  • Me too bud. The SEC has a pretty solid chance of putting 3 teams in the E8

  • Anyone else notice SC's intensity on defense? I'm happy with the hogs effort today, but moving forward, I really wish Coach A would focus a little more on the defensive side of the ball (including rebounding).

      It is kind of bitter sweet.  I was pulling for SC the whole way.  Gotta move on.

    Are you being serious? Vs. UNC was an intense defensive show by our team. And Mike preaches D before offense, always.

    Mike may preach it but stats say our offense has been ahead of the defense since he's been here.   I give them kudos today though, we played defense with more intensity than I have seen in a long time

     Very serious... do you honestly think we were a good defensive team this year, other than maybe Kingsley? The last 2 games, we gave up over 40 offensive rebounds. Rebounding isn't always about size, it's effort... ask Dennis Rodman. On another note, the Hogs gained some national respect today and I am truly excited about the future. Moses, Manny and Dusty will be missed though!

    How intense was that defense when we beat them?

  • The reason Duke lost-the bathroom laws in North Carolina.  They didn't get their usual home court.

    Duke beat North Carolina two out of three games this year.  So you say NC is better?

    And that effort was on full display tonight. We did about as well as anyone could reasonably expect on the boards, especially in the second half.

    Match ups!! Carolina size and athleticism gave us issues. Duke is talented but does not have the same caliber of players. Gave us Duke in Tulsa and it's a different story.

    Agreed! I think Adrio Bailey is going to be a special player in the years to come.

  • Yeah, so close to sending the ACC home.

    Dude, we held North Carolina to 72 points and 38% from the field. They shot 25 free throw while we only shot 8 ::)...Nothing else needs to be said about that. What more do you want? Now the offensive rebounding in the first half, that's a whole different story. We shored that up in the second half for the most part until the tip-in that shouldn't have been.

  • Pulling for SC and we got hosed by the zebra crew.
  • #20 by hogwood on 20 Mar 2017
  • Very happy for SC. Wish we were joining them. In almost any other draw I think we would be... but this is great for the SEC and for SC. Hope they can build on this and help us dethrone Kentucky from their SEC stranglehold.

    Gamecocks to the Final 4 baby!!

  • Why do you think so many players were cramping up? They were going all out the entire time. They weren't trying to rest when they could, but throwing their bodies around at every hope of making a play. In the SEC championship, I thought they wanted to beat Kentucky too desperately and tried to do too much. Against Carolina, though, they just had an all-out intensity but still maintained focus through most of the game. There's no way you can question the intensity of this team after that game. I don't know how you get a team to keep that up over a season, but if you get anywhere close to that next year, this team will be dangerous no matter who they play.
