With Ryan Francis' mom in attendance to cheer her late son's team on SC dominated the Razorbacks in round #1 of the East Regional. SC took a little time to get their sea legs tonight but once they settled in they took control of the game. It was nice to get that 5-year NCAA Tourney monkey off their backs.

Here's the Box Score.

Nick Young once again led all scorers with 20 points and 7 rebounds followed by Taj Gibson with 18 points and 8 rebounds. They played a tough Physical game and shook off the Oregon loss with a convincing wing win against Arkansas. Gibson was clearly the player of the game and he has really left his mark on this team.

Here's the full Game Recap.

We'll have more on tonight's win tomorrow including a preview of Texas. Rose bowl re-match anyone?!
