That gives SC a different look than they had with the big lineup that we faced. The Gamecocks took a 41-37 lead into the final period after scoring 21 points in the third, one more than the entire first half. Now four conferences each have one team: the SEC (South Carolina), the West Coast (Gonzaga), the Pac-12 (Oregon) and the Atlantic Coast (North Carolina).

He also is a senior account executive for Gamecock IMG Sports Marketing.
