The five best Frank McGuire teams

The last entry in USC’s greatest streak of consecutive NCAA tournaments in history (four), Alex English, Mike Dunleavy and Brian Winters combined to form a potent team. In the third year of playing an independent schedule, the Gamecocks won at Michigan State, at Villanova and beat Marquette and Houston. Their losses were to Indiana, Alabama, Davidson and Notre Dame in the regular season. The tournament sent them to Philadelphia for the first round, where they found another Palmetto State team waiting — Furman. The Paladins ended the Gamecocks’ season 75-67 as Winters finished his career with 22 points.
