The Garden was rocking for two SEC teams and neither was named Kentucky. SEC commissioner Greg Sankey is pretty, pretty pleased.

South Carolina beats Florida 77-70 to earn berth in Final Four. The ViewFromVegas is the Gamecocks did it as 3-point underdogs and +145 on the money line. South Carolina was the No. 7 seed in the East Regional and the 30-1 eighth choice (behind No. 8 Wisconsin) at the Westgate SuperBook.

Defense plus Sindarius Thornwell equals an improbable run to the Final Four for South Carolina. Florida hit 7 threes in the first half and zero in the second, a defensive masterpiece concocted by Frank Martin.

There are very few people sitting in Madison Square Garden right now. #drama

Don't think anyone is surprised this game is going to the wire. Two teams know one another too well for either to get much breathing room.

Thornwell has three fouls but Frank Martin sends him back on the floor. Has to but risky

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

Apparently Florida used up all of its 3-point juice in the first half. 0 for so far. Getting good looks, just not making them. South Carolina meantime has been working the boards with abandon, extending possessions.
