Despite having the SEC player of the year Sindarius Thornwell, the South Carolina Gamecocks had no chance of getting this far. Even though they were ranked higher than Marquette the Gamecocks were only given a 44% chance of winning that game. They only had a 17% chance of beating Duke. They had a 35% chance of beating Baylor and a 40% chance of beating Florida. But to run the table to this point ESPN had it at 0. Actually 0.5% as you can see below.
They are 6.5 point underdogs heading into their next game against Gonzaga. But they are still dancing. They're still Cinderella or in this case Sinderella and the slipper still fits. Go Cocks!
