Jonathan Williams wasn't even acknowledged by a closeout when he hit his first 3. A couple makes later and he's able to shot fake and drive. And-one.

Gonzaga poses a ton of issues in the half-court for Xavier because of how well they shoot and how effective Przemek Karnowski is as a passer. Hard to zone them, hard to double Karnowski.

Just before Przemek Karnowski picked up his second foul, he put an extra no-look walk into a kick out to Nigel Williams-Goss, who banged a 3. Karnowski pumped his fist and screamed "let's go Nig!" at his point guard. Gonzaga's on an 8-2 run.

Chris Mack stressed yesterday that his team (and, in his view, any team) had to get the ball inside to succeed offensively. The Musketeers take the highest percentage of their field goals around the rim of any team left in the bracket, per hoop-math.com. Thus far they've taken two 3s in 21 field goal attempts -- almost all of which have been at the rim.

Contrasting early approaches in San Jose: Seven of Gonzaga's eight FGA have been 3s, while Xavier has yet to attempt a shot outside the arc. Both effective thus far.

The Florida-South Carolina East Region Elite Eight marks the first time two teams are meeting in this round after not making the NCAA tournament the previous season since UConn-Arizona in 2011. Neither made the 2010 NCAA tournament.

South Carolina coach Frank Martin said this run to the Elite Eight has been "unbelievable.'' He said he usually spends a quiet moment in the morning with his coffee thinking/dreaming. Taking South Carolina to this level was something he certainly dreamt about happening. "I haven't slept well, but that's OK. I can sleep in April and May.''

Someone just asked De'Aaron Fox if the freshmen were hazed when they got there. "There's a lot more of us than them."

Calipari on Indiana hire: "If I were hiring a coach, I would want to hire Archie. ... I think he'll do a great job there."

What was the moment that got South Carolina's late-year momentum going? To Gamecocks coach Frank Martin, it was the night his team lost at Florida. SC is 5-2 with some big wins since that 81-66 loss on Feb. 21.

John Calipari is emphasizing Bam Adebayo's selfless approach to the season. Says he made a critical impact on Friday's game that the box scores did not highlight. Reiterates that he's never complained about his minutes or touches.

Frank Martin on SEC hoops, recalls Kentucky beating Alabama, a game he termed a "brawl," but others argued was Kentucky sneaking by: "that's disrespectful."
