Baylor Bears top USC, advancing to the Sweet 16

Here's how to watch and follow Baylor vs. USC. Now the Bears are looking to advance to the Sweet 16 and play for even bigger things.

Lecomte, a Belgium native held in check for most of the contest, poured in eight points in a 45-second span that helped fuel the Bears winning finish.

"I think it would mean a lot to our fans", Baylor guard Al Freeman said. They kept believing in me. "They trusted me with the ball in my hands, so I just had to go out there and make plays".

USC grabbed its first lead of the second half when Stewart hit a 3-pointer for a 53-52 edge. The Bears had 10 offensive rebounds and scored 18 points in the paint in that period. "We kind of started doing that in the New Mexico State game".

"Before the game, my teammates and coaches told me to be aggressive and take shots", McClure said.

"It takes a team to win", Motley said. "Everybody, everybody put in something".

The USC Trojans (26-9) are coming from a 75-71 win over Providence in which Bennie Boatwright scored 24 points in 8-for-16 shooting from the field and 5-for-7 from the line.

Baylor faces several federal lawsuits from women who say the school mishandled, ignored or suppressed their claims of assault for years, including several cases involving football players. "We're very proud of our players and the way they've developed. and also I though Baylor played extremely hard".

When the buzzer finally sounded Sunday at the end of this March gem, Lecomte looked up and gave a subtle fist pump.

"He's had major improvement defensively since he's been here", Drew said.
