SC banks in game-winner vs. No. 10 Kentucky

USC Athletics

He's good at drawing fouls, averaging 5.4 fouls drawn per 40 minutes, and is sixth in the SEC in steal rate, which means South Carolina's in for a long night if the guards don't protect the ball.

Unranked South Carolina battled back from frequent double-digit deficits to upset the No. 10 Wildcats, 81-78, on a running 3-pointer banked off the glass by Jermaine Couisnard as the buzzer sounded.

"Have said since day one, if they let their guard down they can lose to anyone". "They finally caught me".

With South Carolina Coach Frank Martin's instruction to attack fresh in mind, Couisnard rushed up court. "He wasn't going to be denied".

"I'm just going to keep working hard and continue to be humble", she said.

SC point guard Tyasha Harris didn't do a much celebrating when the Gamecocks ascended to the top of the rankings this week. As the first quarter wore down, things got uglier and more physical, with more foul calls and some uncharacteristic turnovers, part of 18 total for USC on the game, tied for second most on the year.

Couisnard, though, brings courage and personality to the team, Martin said, unafraid to make plays and do whatever is necessary for SC. That capped a team-high 20-point game for Quickley.

FEARLESS FRESHMEN: Kentucky's Ashton Hagans, Nick Richards and Tyrese Maxey have combined to account for 53 percent of the team's scoring this season and have scored 49 percent of all Wildcats points over the last five games.

After shooting 24% from the field in the first half, SC shot 56 percent in the second period. Montgomery had five rebounds, but none came in the second half when he had three fouls and no rebounds in 13 minutes.

Minaya added two more baskets between a ride from A.J. Lawson and SC were 1: 46 (76: 71) ahead of them.

The end result was a loss in a game that Kentucky led for more than 35 minutes, and by as much as 14 with barely 15 minutes to play.

"You got a chance to get someone to 20 (points down) you do it", United Kingdom head coach John Calipari said. "But they never stopped".

BOTTOM LINE: No. 10 Kentucky presents a tough challenge for SC. The Gamecocks after five victories against the Wildcats since 2009 have all taken place in the Colonial Life Arena. Kentucky led 33-25 at the half. But they missed eight of their final 10 shots.

South Carolina: The Gamecocks faced a three-game losing streak that included a bad home loss to Stetson.

College basketball analyst Debbie Antonelli said the the carousel at the top of the polls is a reflection of the growth of women's basketball as result of the gradual increase and spread of talent from two or three dominant programs to teams all around the country. But, South Carolina won against the defending national championship team Virginia in December, 70-59.
