Carolina defeated Tennessee 64-62 in Columbia.
USC took the lead late in this nip-and-tuck affair on a driving layup by Jamie Watson with 47 seconds remaining. A last-second three-pointer by UT that would’ve won it bounced harmlessly away, giving the Gamecocks a hard-fought SEC victory.
Andy Bostick led the scoring parade with 16 points. Watson had a nice game as well, hitting on 7 of 11 FG attempts, scoring 15 points and grabbing 7 rebounds.
