Default "Have to be 16th"

CBS sports recently wrote an article reseeding all the sweet 16 teams, 1st to 16th. Article can be found here.

At the bottom of the list, little ole South Carolina is marked at 16th, and the explanation?

"Have to be 16th". It's no question. No matter we beat the brakes off Marquette and absolutely wrecked Duke worse than any other team had this season, we "have to be 16th".

Michigan is ranked 3 spots ahead of us, and we dominated them earlier this year. They had a bad regular season at times too like us, and the article acknowledges this, but "they skimmed past Louisville" so they are somehow completely redeemed, and we are not.
We wrecked Duke. We scored 65 points in one half against Duke and our defense was good enough to keep us in the game with one of the best teams in the country even when we had no offense at all. And when our offense caught fire, we dominated. This wasn't a fluke, we dominated fair and square.





But this is a reminder to the team, we are not proven. We may have the respect of some, and it is exciting to be where we are, but nobody sees us as a contender. The fact is, if we beat Baylor, we are in the elite 8. To prove ourselves we have to play this type of basketball until the very end. And to be honest with you, I don't think we just had good games, I think this is the team we are. After Sin was suspended and came back, our team couldn't find their identity, but since the tournament, we have been focused and we want it more than anyone, and that is showing. Everyone on the court is fighting like it's their last, not just Thornwell.


Stay Focus!

Well, of all the teams in the Sweet 16, we are the relative newcomer. All of the teams listed besides us have a recent or historical record of being tournament teams. Still have to prove we belong.

Interesting, ESPN did the same article but ranked us 11 I believe. Don't have the link handy now, I'll try to add it later. Baylor was #16 in theirs. ESPN likes us?

I look at it as another means to push the team to win... Fans doubted the team to beat Marquette, a good number didn't think we could keep it close with Duke, I like the chance for the team to prove the experts and naysayers wrong.

Eh, 52 teams who made the round of 68 would like to be the 16th! And how many others who were not invited are envious as well.

We beat the Vegas favorite and the popular pick to win it all - I guess that means nothing?

We shot well in the second half of both games. But we can be ugly when we are not shooting well, and that is what the pundits have seen (if they even bothered to look at our games).

I guess we just have to stay focus and keep win.

I don't think I would be too concerned about being ranked 16th. That still is right at our highest ranking g of the entire season.

Let them doubt us. If/when we make it deeper in the tourney, that's just more crow that has to be eaten.

My only lament is that Baylor won their game, so we can't show the national media who the REAL USC is.

I should think with our recent wins and the talk of our very modest success in our history, we probably will have the non affiliated fans around the nation pulling for us in our games from here on out. A power 5 Cinderella team.

We didn't "wreck" Duke. We had to score 65 points in the second half to win by 7. Florida, for example, "wrecked" Virginia.

We're one of 16 teams that are left at this point of the season, and we're really complaining about where some blowhard has us ranked in those 16. Really????

Considering it's the first time (since the expansion to 64 teams) that we've reached this pinnacle, I couldn't care less. I'm just going to enjoy the ride, however long it may last.

They certainly looked like they were hit by a bus in postgame interviews.
