    Default 2017 NCAA Tournament:**USC (23-10) vs. Duke (28-8) GAME Thread**

    South Carolina (23-10) earned a No. 7 seed in its ninth berth to the NCAA Tournament and posted a 93-73 victory over No. 10 seed Marquette in the First Round to advance to Sunday's Second Round matchup vs. No. 2 seed Duke (28-8). Friday's victory over Marquette marked the first NCAA Tournament win for South Carolina since 1973. Frank Martin is now 7-4 all-time in the NCAA Tournament, including a perfect 5-0 in the opening round.

    Duke leads the all-time series with South Carolina 56-19 ... The Blue Devils hold an 8-1 advantage in games played on a neutral court ... The series dates back to the 1920-21 season ... Duke won the last meeting between the two schools in an 81-56 decision at the Maui Invitational on Nov. 20, 2001 ... Frank Martin has faced Duke once as a head coach, as his Kansas State squad suffered an 82-68 loss to the top-ranked Blue Devile on Nov. 23, 2010, in the O'Reilly Auto Parts CBE Classic in Kansas City, Mo.

    Tipoff: 8:40 p.m. ET
    Location: Greenville, S.C.

    1) Silva, Keita and Kostar will have to stay on the floor and out of foul trouble. Especially Silva because when he fouls out or has to sit on the bench, the team seems to power down.

    2) Offensive contributions from Dozier and Notice. I would love for other guys to also make their shots and chip in but we have seen what they can and cant do throughout this season. We also know that Thornwell will get his even when Duke double teams him and shadow him all game. The rest of the team will have to make Duke rotate to the open man or commit fouls.

    3) minimize scoring droughts and Duke runs. We simply cant go 3-6-10 minutes without scoring in this game or we will quickly be down 20 points and it will be game over.

    4) bring some energy and play loose

    5) stay focus

    6) score more points than Duke by the time the game ends

    7) keep the game out of the referees hands

    I used to be able to wander the back halls of the old Memorial Auditorium, pretty much undisturbed, but I'm guessing Security will be a little more intense these days...you will probably have to find somebody else if you plan on locking the refs in their dressing room.

    If we play a lot like we did in the second half against Marquette, we will have a chance. I sure would love to get to the Sweet 16 by beating Duke!

    I'm about to leave for Greenville. If you're going to the women's game, please pull them through; I feel guilty about not being there. Beating Duke in the NCAAT, however, is a once in a lifetime experience.

    Y'all forgot that Grayson has already tripped three players and given a nut shot to another.
