CAROLINA BASKETBALL: The Martin Way now playing on national stage

25 March, 2017, 00:38 | Author: Celia Hoffman

But this total seems low for a Baylor team that's scored a combined 173 points in its last two games and a SC team that just torched Duke.

Coach Dawn Staley's women's team, making its fourth straight trip to the Sweet 16, travels 2,637.9 miles to northern California to play a team from CT - the Quinnipiac Bobcats - on Saturday. There was an Elite Eight loss to Notre Dame in 2015, two years after getting to the Sweet 16 as defending national champions with All-America players Brittney Griner and Odyssey Sims only to lose to Louisville.

"Definitely, I'll get [Bryce's] thoughts and opinions, but ultimately our teams are different", said Scott Drew. "[They said] 'He's going to fail because he's nothing but a high school coach.' That was the word that was used, and I used to sit there and laugh". I said, you know what, I'm going to motivate them by showing them toughness. "But that's what we come to school and play basketball for, these big moments and to play on the biggest stage".

Drew's brother, Bryce, just finished his first coaching season at Vanderbilt, another SEC school. Baylor is one of 13 teams to reach the Sweet 16 at least four times since 2010. "We failed. But none of us ever blamed each other", coach Frank Martin said. "But our sophomore year we kind of rode together and were able it get that win".

SC plays Baylor Friday in New York City's Madison Square Garden in the NCAA Basketball Sweet 16.

They have twice played NCAA Tournament games in Oklahoma City - and their season ended there both times.

Monaco fear no one after eliminating Manchester City
Second half [City] missed chance after chance. "A lot of people thought we could not go through (after the first leg) but we are a great team".

Coach Frank Martin's men's team, this year's Cinderella as conqueror of Duke, plays Friday night against Baylor in the Mecca of basketball, Madison Square Garden. The team upset Duke Sunday to advance to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1973.

1 In case you didn't know, South Regional is also playing tonight with somewhat of a marquee matchup between No. 2 seed Kentucky and fabulous freshmen Malik Monk, De'Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo facing No. 3 seed UCLA and super frosh Lonzo Ball (you may have heard of him) and T. J. Leaf. SC finished off Duke 88-81 with a second-half run of 65 points-26 in the paint and 10 on the fast break. "Their defense is unbelievable". One player they will be relying on to counter that attack is Devin Robinson. "What you didn't understand is, you were paying me the ultimate compliment that anyone could be paid, which is you were calling me an educator".

The East is at the bottom regarding big-name players, but someone who has a shines means everyone's going to put them on their radar. One day this heavyset kid walks in wearing regular clothes and street shoes and tells me he wants to do anything he can to be part of our organization. The Bears' bench averaged 20.2 points per game during the season, but that's been boosted to 33.5 points in their two NCAA Tournament wins.

Added Wainright, "They do a great job feeding him the ball in his spots that he likes the ball".

"I'm extremely proud of how Scott has been able to maintain Baylor as a national victor", Martin said."Everyone thinks, OK, Baylor is going to take a back seat this year". We had our battles; he's a close friend.
