TAKE A STAND: Sweet 16

TAKE A STAND: Sweet 16

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Palmetto State has reason to be proud. Both the South Carolina Men and Women's basketball teams have advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16.

The women beat Arizona State and the men shocked the nation by shocking the mighty Duke Blue Devils, which some experts had predicted to be in the Final Four, and maybe even win it all.

For the women, it's their fourth straight Sweet 16.

For the South Carolina men, it's much more historic.  It had been 13 years without making March Madness, 44 years without winning a game, and never have the Gamecocks advanced to the Sweet 16.

The men and women are on a roll.

Can they go deeper in the tournament? Maybe. You gotta believe.
