March Madness (c'mon NCAA, sue me) was in full effect this week. For a tournament that features 67 games, 52 are already in the books. And while there weren't any impossible upsets, a lot of favored teams went home. Like the Duke Blue Devils. Duke was a vogue pick for the Final Four until they ran into a buzz saw in South Carolina. Led by Sindarius Thornwell, the Gamecocks took advantage of a partisan home crown (and maybe just a few North Carolina Tarheels fans joining the bandwagon) in Greenville, SC, to oust the favored Devils 88-81. It was never competitive the final 10 minutes. Thornwell 24 points, 6 boards, and 5 assists in the stunner. Combine this with a 29 point, 11 rebound game in a 93-73 demolishing of Marquette in the first round (in what was a pick'em game). Did we mention that the senior Thornwell was the SEC player of the Year (in a league that features pretty good Kentucky players). Playing a full four years and leading your school to their first tournament victory since 1973, that's big. Worthy of our Sportsman of the Week!
