Fans chanting "let's go Gamecocks." Sounds suspiciously liken "let's go game clock." Wish it worked.

When Frank Martin talks about what separates SEC hoops play from other conferences, he likes to use the word "physical." We're seeing a physical game in the low post early.

So the Kentucky-Carolina game is first to 100. Good chance these two could play six OTs and not get there. More blocks and turnovers than made buckets early.

Shot-clock problems after the first two made baskets have given both fan bases a chance to put-chant one another. South Carolina's was louder.

Dana O'Neil ESPN Senior Writer 

Lots of frantic conversation at scorers table right now as they try to get clock issues straightened out.
