Devin Robinson said he thought at first Chiozza was throwing a lob. "It was floating and I was like, "oh snap, that thing might go on."

ESPN Stats and Information  

Seventy points can come in many different forms. For the South Carolina Gamecocks, it came from six different scorers in their 70-50 win over Baylor in Friday night's Sweet 16 matchup. For the Phoenix Suns, it was simply Devin Booker, who put on a show and made NBA history by scoring 70 points in the Suns' 130-120 loss to the Celtics.

What is Florida expecting in its matchup with South Carolina? "A battle," Chris Chiozza said. Coach Mike White tells me it'll be a defensive war. The teams know each other well, having split two games in conference play this year.

Think winning a blowout game to take your team to the Elite Eight warrants a rest? Not for South Carolina coach Frank Martin. He's in media row scouting the Gamecocks' next opponent -- either Wisconsin or Florida.

Frank Martin is done with his press conference, but still addressing media. Literally 10 feet away, Florida players were leaving their locker room for starting lineups.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

I asked Frank Martin how much easier it is to teach defense to blue collar kids like he has. "That's who we are. That's what it's all about. People talk about guys transferring out. They leave because they don't want to play as hard as Sindarius Thornwell or Duane Notice."

Swagger, defense and the fans' support -- PJ Dozier credits it all for the Gamecocks' big win over Baylor that propelled them to the Elite Eight.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

Just walked back to South Carolina's locker room with Sindarius Thornwell. Asked him about the constant defensive pressure, even when Gamecocks were up big: "Oh yeah. We have to play that way. Coach (Frank Martin) won't allow us to let up at all."
