The South Carolina Gamecocks are heading to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament in what is largely an improbable run by most basketball fans' standards. 

Considering the Gamecocks beat the Duke Blue Devils, it's hard to not get caught up in that kind of talk.

Yes, we can talk about miracles and surprises and Cinderellas and all that jazz, but what about South Carolina's chances of winning it all? 

Well, according to statistics website FiveThirtyEight, the Gamecocks have just a 1 percent chance of winning the national championship, tying fellow Sweet 16 citizen Xavier's chances. 

So, who's got the inside look to win the tournament? Gonzaga currently sits on an 18 percent chance of being the champions. 

Okay, so we're guilty of looking too far ahead here. Naturally, let's take a look at South Carolina's next opponent, Baylor. According to the stats wizards, South Carolina has a 44 percent chance of beating the Bears and heading to the Elite 8.

The Gamecocks take on the Bears on Friday at 6:29 p.m.
