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.

De'Aaron Fox (39 points) carried Kentucky into the Elite Eight with an amazing effort against UCLA. Did it all in front of Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka, who might still pick Lonzo Ball if they have the chance but will leave Memphis knowing Fox was the best player on the court on Friday night.
