ESPN.com's Myron Medcalf re-ranked the 16 teams remaining in the NCAA tournament and he considers Baylor to be the weakest team left in the Big Dance.

Baylor finally subdued the upstart USC Trojans. Jump to the comments section below for live updates as the game unfolds.

Baylor guard Manu Lecomte was 0-for-5 shooting at halftime, 0-for-4 from 3-point range. The Lady Tigers played in three consecutive Women's NIT Tournaments between 2013 and 2015; prior to that run, TSU's last trip to the postseason beyond the SWAC Tournament was in 1982, when the Lady Tigers were one of eight teams to advance to the NAIA National Tournament. Baylor will face SC at Madison Square Garden on Friday with a trip to the Elite Eight on the line.

"Before the game, my teammates and coaches told me to be aggressive and take shots", McClure said. They kept believing in me. "I was struggling a little bit in the first half".

The Trojans used deep rotation to avoid let down because of the fatigue, but the bench players provided only 7 points. "I love the game of basketball and you dream of moments like this".

Boatwright paced USC in the first half with eight points and Metu added seven. The Bears had 10 offensive rebounds and scored 18 points in the paint in that period.

Sure enough, that's what Baylor did, showing no signs of relenting as senior leader Ishmail Wainwright iced the game at the free-throw line.

- Baylor and USC were facing each other for the first time since 1976 and the third time in series history, all of which have been played at neutral sites.

As much as the USC Trojans (26-9) resilience is commendable, they are dancing on the edge of the knife the last two games. The Bears and Trojans split two previous meetings.

The USC basketball program has never really been that great and has constantly been outshined by cross-town rivals, UCLA.
