A high seed that didn't have a piano dropped on its head.

On Friday night, the March Madness 2018 continues with the Clemson vs. Kansas live streaming and televised matchup. Some suggest they aren't big enough.

All of that is great; however, the Raleigh, North Carolina native is at his peak when he passes out of this action. A Shelby native and former Charlotte Observer player of the year, DeVoe set a Clemson record for most points in an NCAA Tournament game Friday.

Marvin Bagley III and Devonte' Graham. They handled the Mountaineers' pressure well early. They were denied what would have been their first Elite Eight berth since 2000.

"It definitely helps the longer the local teams and the ACC teams stay alive", Fletcher said.

De Sousa said he shoots about 200 free throws per day, knocking them down at a clip between 75 and 80 percent. That foursome of teams alone would have made for an intriguing Final Four. To come so close and miss it - twice - is anguish.

And Svi Mykhailiuk: "This gives us an opportunity to do the job we couldn't do the last two years".

Added Newman: "This is why you come to Kansas, to experience the best of the best and to have fun doing it".

And especially Graham, who still lives with his 0-for-7 against Oregon. "We get to play off of him".

More than 40 million Americans fill out one or multiple tournament brackets, including 23.7 million employees, according to the American Gaming Association. Seven of those, he lost.

No. 1 Kansas vs. Like he is now.

"I'm very excited about it", he said.

"Certainly it's etched in the back of my brain", he said - and in the linings of many stomachs. This season, Clemson has five separate players who are averaging over ten points per game. Getting to the Final Four has been a different story - and the Jayhawks are on the doorstep once again. "But these guys have figured it out".

With the Sweet 16 finally underway in NCAA basketball, there is a game between two quality opponents.

"My confidence is sky high". "I'm not really out there thinking anymore". It won the Big 12 tournament with three double-digit victories. It's not easy to get that far.

At one point in the second half, DeVoe had more points (20) that the rest of Clemson's team combined (19), but the Tigers still trailed 54-38 with 14:49 remaining. Other seasons with three Elite Eight teams include 2002 and 2003. "It'd be even more special if I can get over that hump". They just made history. I thought that was a big factor in the game. But given the breadth of Self's accomplishments, for someone who knows the game to flatter him in this manner seems worthy of our attention. "We've got a ton of respect for Kansas State".

"I told the guys after the game, it's not a guarantee".

Even before that, there was the injury-plagued freshman year at Mississippi State, the entering and pulling out of the National Basketball Association draft and finally the transfer to Kansas. So I think we'll play with no what-ifs. I think we'll be as loose as we can be.

Duke only shot 39.3 percent from the floor but made 20 of 28 free throws and won the turnover battle 16-7.

Graham wound up playing 35 minutes, which marked his lowest output since a home win over Oklahoma on February 19, and played fewer than 39 minutes for just the third time since January 15. An old, worn cliché.
