South Carolina runs away from Marquette

(TSX / STATS) -- GREENVILLE, S.C. -- South Carolina put on a second-half show for the home-state fans Friday night.

Sindarius Thornwell scored 29 points, leading a big second half for the seventh-seeded Gamecocks in a 93-73 victory over 10th-seeded Marquette in an NCAA Tournament East Region first-round game at Bon Secours Wellness Arena.

"I knew if we could build it and play basketball how I like to play, our fans would love it, and it's starting to happen," South Carolina coach Frank Martin said.
