COLUMBIA, S.C. — There will be no madness this March in South Carolina.
For the first time since 1995, none of the 12 Division I schools eligible for the men's NCAA tournament will hear their names called Sunday.
Clemson and South Carolina were the state's last hopes, but each fell in their conference tournament openers — the Tigers to Virginia Tech in the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Gamecocks to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference.
Just two years ago, the state was filled with NCAA tournament teams as Clemson, Winthrop and Wofford made the Big Dance. This year, though, Terriers coach Mike Young says he'll likely find something else to do when the brackets are announced Sunday evening.
