Baylor has rediscovered Lual-Acuil. Went to him early and effectively. He's getting more good looks at rim than anyone else.

The ball is currently going in the basket for Baylor. See what happens when the half begins.

Forget being up 21, South Carolina is playing like it's down 21 and trying to mount a furious comeback. INTENSE defensive pressure, still.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Joel Berry II looked like he may have re-aggravated his ankle. Moving gingerly.

This is the first time South Carolina has led an NCAA Tournament game at halftime since 1971 against Fordham (Regional 3rd-Place Game). The Gamecocks failed to lead each of their last 13 NCAA Tournament games at halftime.

Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka are in the building.

Nigel Hayes and the Badgers have arrived at MSG prior to Wisconsin's Sweet 16 game against Florida tonight.

Tough night for Butler but the Bulldogs have a young star in Kamar Baldwin. Love how he's still making plays and working hard to get to the rim with his team down 18 points.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

It's worth mentioning that just a little more than a month ago this same South Carolina team scored 16 points in a half ... against Alabama. To say the Gamecocks have come a long way would be an understatement.

On Thursday, Roy Williams said he was still waiting for Joel Berry II to reach 100 percent after the injury. Looks like he's back. He's an aggressive leader, leading this North Carolina attack. They're just pushing Butler around the floor.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

It's been impressive seeing how quickly multiple South Carolina defenders move to the ball when Baylor tries to pass it around in offensive sets. This game's tempo, energy and pacing is all on the Gamecocks' side.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

Baylor finished half 2 of last 14 as South Carolina turned the Bears into the Bad News Bears. Couldn't get many good looks and the ones they got, it was as if they were stunned to be open and missed terribly.

Rachel Marcus ESPN Editor 

South Carolina goes into halftime up 37-22 on Baylor because of an 18-0 run late in the first half. The Gamecocks showed energy and defense, and the Bears looked overwhelmed and flustered.

Joe Lunardi Senior Writer, ESPN.com 

Baylor is never going to have a better opportunity for the Final Four than this East Regional field. And the Bears are coming up incredibly and surprisingly small.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

Baylor plays zone and has absolutely no idea how to attack this one. Scott Drew finally calls a timeout as South Carolina fans take over this building.

Xavier is trying to become the second team in history to beat the 1, 2 and 3 seed in its region since seeding began in 1979. In 1986, LSU beat the 3, 2 and 1 in the Round of 32, Sweet 16 and Elite 8 before losing to eventual national champion Louisville in the Final Four. (AP Photo/Ben Margot)

With about four minutes left in the first half, and a 12-point lead, South Carolina fans have Madison Square Garden rocking with a "Let's Go Gamecocks!" chant.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

Baylor hasn't scored in nearly four minutes and missing badly. The Bears range right now is six inches

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Luke Maye entered this game averaging 5.1 PPG and shooting 35 percent from the 3-point line. At halftime, he has 14 points after making 3 of 4 from beyond the arc in the first half. North Carolina draining everything. Mike Tyson'd the Bulldogs early.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Justin Jackson is the first North Carolina player to make 100 3-pointers in a season.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

This is what happens when Justin Jackson gets hot and Joel Berry II shifts the defense with his penetration and passing and Luke Maye makes his first three shots from beyond the arc and UNC refuses to give up good looks on defense. No team in America beats North Carolina when the Tar Heels are shooting and defending like this.

South Carolina defense really forcing Baylor into some crazy shots. No surprise they aren't going in frequently. Gamecocks offense, though, can't take advantage early
