Sports Night: Duke, Louisville knocked out of NCAA Tournament
LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) —
No. 7 seed South Carolina has upset second-seeded Duke, a team some Las Vegas casinos considered the betting favorite going into the NCAA Tournament.
Sindarius Thornwell scored 24 points for South Carolina in the 88-81 win.
The Blue Devils join Louisville on Sunday as No. 2 seeds upset in the second round.
In honor of the NCAA Tournament, Thurl Bailey – a member of the North Carolina State team that upset Georgetown in the 1983 National Championship game – stops by for an interview.
One week after Kyle Busch and Joey Logano has a fight in the pits after a last-lap crash in Las Vegas, Logano took Busch out of the race in Phoenix.
With 8 laps to go and Busch leading and dominating, Logano suffered a blown tire causing a caution. Busch decided to pit, and came out fifth as four cars ahead of him gambled.
The gamble paid off for victor Ryan Newman; Busch ended up third.
It was another up-and-down day for former Rebels golfer Charley Hoffman, who had to come from four shots back again today. This time, however, Hoffman could only make up three shots on the final few holes of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He finished in a tie for second as Marc Leishman earned the win.
