Yes it's super early, but here is ESPN's Joe Lunardi's take so far. 11 seed playing 6 seed South Carolina.

South Carolina as not won a NCAA tournament game since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in '85.

Their most recent win was in '73.

That's got little to do with their 8-0 start.

RE: Bracketology
They had a great start last year, 15-0, but faded during the latter part of the season and ended up without a bid, despite being in the SEC.

History matters, otherwise we'd be betting on Northwestern, William & Mary, and Maine to make the tournament and for Nebraska to advance past the first round. USC might overcome their history and get a bid. If so, they would be a good first round opponent for UNCW because none of the current Gamecocks have any NCAA Tournament experience.

In 1997, South Carolina got a 2 seed and lost 78-65 to 15 seed Coppin State. Coppin State almost made the Sweet 16 as they lost to Texas 82-81.

This year is different, I've watched them, they have impressed. They have beaten a few ranked teams and are not 15-0 on a cupcake schedule.

Correct the reference was to a mention of them being 15-0 last year. They are 8-0 with some nice wins

South Carolina is now 8-1, with tonight's loss to Seton Hall. Lunardi may have UNCW playing USC in the first round, but the seeds may be reversed.

They have some decent, 50-60 rpi types, wins, but not any great ones.

Realtime RPI has a bracket projection that has UNCW as an 8 or a 9 playing Ole Miss. CofC is a 12 in a play-in game.

Heady stuff.
