Gamecocks hang in there, but fall 89-78 to No. 5 Wolverines

Gamecocks hang in there, but fall 89-78 to No. 5 Wolverines

Tough loss, but not a bad showing from the Garnet and Black. The South Carolina Gamecocks couldn’t pull the big road upset, but showed some encouraging mettle in an 89-78 loss to the No. 5 Michigan Wolverines on Saturday afternoon. The game got off to a pretty good start for South Carolina, as the Wolverines were sloppy with the basketball, which allowed the Gamecocks to keep pace with them offensively. Michigan eventually tightened up its play and went on a 13-2 run near the end of the half, but South Carolina did enough to stay afloat and only trailed by six, 42-36, at the break. Much...

Second half dooms Gamecocks against Cowboys in 74-63 loss

Second half dooms Gamecocks against Cowboys in 74-63 loss

So that was a little frustrating. The South Carolina Gamecocks put together a solid first half, but wilted in the second when the Wyoming Cowboys used a big run to put the game out of reach and handed the Gamecocks a 74-63 loss in their first true road game on Wednesday. The evening started out well for South Carolina, as Wyoming frankly couldn’t throw the ball in the ocean and the Gamecock offense was feeding off that stifling defensive effort. The situation improved even more when Cowboys senior Justin James, their leading scorer, was shelved early with two fouls and forced to watch...
