Motley scores 19 as Baylor defeats USC, moves to Sweet 16

And for a Baylor team struggling to hold off an upset-minded and comeback-driven USC team, Lecomte's hot streak came at the flawless time. Given that the against-the-spread line opened as Baylor -6.5 and finished at -5.5, some of those who bet on the Bears to cover looked in good shape (with others set for at least a push) when a last-second three clanked off the rim. The college basketball odds for the game have the Bears favored to pick up the win by a handful of possessions.

"I think it would mean a lot to our fans", Baylor guard Al Freeman said. "I was struggling a little bit in the first half".

Behind a smooth Elijah Stewart 3-pointer and a powerful Stewart dunk, USC made eight straight shots to go up 63-59 with 7:21 to play. The Bears had 10 offensive rebounds and scored 18 points in the paint in that period. "We're going to finish this game, '" Motley said.

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




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.

The Bears will play in the East Regional semifinal on Friday in New York City. "Let's hope it's in Dallas, and if it's not, I know this - if it's not, the team that beats us just played better". Which team will win? "Everybody, everybody put in something". Bennie Boatwright tallied 16 for USC, attempting to make the Sweet 16 for the first time in 10 seasons.

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 never gave up (and) we fought hard. "It was just a great college basketball game".

"He's had major improvement defensively since he's been here", Drew said. Lecomte scored all 12 of his points in the last five minutes.
