Game StORylIneS
- South Carolina is in its 107th season of varsity basketball in 2014-15.
- The Gamecocks are led by third-year head coach Frank Martin. His associate head coach is Matt Figger, his assistant coaches are Perry Clark and Lamont Evans, and his director of operations is Andy Assaley.
- South Carolina was in a back-and-forth battle on the road at LSU on Wednesday, but the home team was able
to secure a 64-58 victory in Baton Rouge, using key free throws from Jordan Mickey and Tim Quarterman in the
final 19 seconds to seal the win. The Gamecocks struggled offensively, hitting just 34.4 percent (21-61) from the
field, however, Carolina hit seven 3s in the contest. Mickey and Jarell Martin blocked six shots each for the Tigers.
- Junior forward Michael Carrera led the Gamecocks with 10 rebounds at LSU, marking his first double-figure
rebounding game of the season. Carrera has led Carolina in rebounding in each of the last three games, collecting
nine each vs. Tennessee and Kentucky, followed by his 10 at LSU. He is averaging 6.6 rebounds per game in league
play, which ranks 10th in the league.
- South Carolina is 30-18 all-time vs. Georgia in games played in Columbia.
- Last season vs. Georgia, then-rookie Sindarius Thornwell put together two of his top performances of SEC play,
scoring 26 points in the first matchup vs. the Bulldogs in Athens, followed by an 18-point effort in Columbia.
Thornwell was a combined 19-of-24 from the charity stripe in those games.
- Sophomore forward Demetrius Henry and sophomore guard Justin McKie did not play at LSU due to
concussions.

leading the way with 13.5 points per game and a team high 7.3 rebounds per outing. Junior Kenny Gaines (11.9), junior Charles Mann (11.2), senior Nemanja Djurisic (10.9) and
sophomore J.J. Frazier (10.7) all contribute double figures as well. That group is the projected
starting five for the Bulldogs on Saturday. Georgia has won five-straight contests entering
Saturday’s game, including most recently posting a 70-62 home win over Vandy to sweep
the season series vs. the Commodores. During their five-game win streak, UGA has posted

2009, and in the Coaches poll votes for the first time since March 2006.
tHORnWell Sec PlayeR OF tHe Week
Sophomore guard Sindarius Thornwell was named SEC Player of the Week on Jan. 5 after
averaging 12 points, 6.5 rebounds and two assists as the Gamecocks downed North Carolina
A&T and No. 9 Iowa State. It is the first conference player of the week honor for the Lancaster, S.C., native. He earned SEC Freshman of the Week honors three times last season.
Thornwell opened the week posting 11 points, five rebounds and two steals, while matching a
season high with four assists, and a career high with two blocks vs. North Carolina A&T. He
followed that up with 13 points and eight rebounds against No. 9 Iowa State in the Barclays
Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Of those 13 points, ten would come in the second half, including
six points in the final two minutes and a key steal to seal the win with 12 seconds left and
the Cyclones looking to tie the game down 63-60. The win was Carolina’s first over a top-10
opponent since 2010.
Game #20 - GeORGIa - SatuRday, jan. 31, 2015 - GamecOck baSketball
BREAKDOWN: IOWA
State WIn
South Carolina’s win vs. ninth-ranked Iowa State was the
Gamecocks’ first win over a top-10 opponent since Jan.
26, 2010, when Carolina defeated top-ranked Kentucky.
It was also the Gamecocks’ first neutral site win over a
ranked opponent since defeating 14th-ranked Tennessee
in the 2006 SEC Tournament. The win propelled South
Carolina’s RPI 43 points, from 129 to 86, and gave the
Gamecocks a 9-3 record for non-conference play this
season.
SHePPaRd RetuRnS FROm
InjuRy
Freshman forward Shamiek Sheppard made his collegiate
debut on Dec. 30 vs. North Carolina A&T, after missing the first 10 games of the season due to a knee injury
suffered this summer which required surgery. Sheppard
battled through the rehab process and was nearly a month
ahead of his projected schedule for return. The Brooklyn, N.Y., native played in his second collegiate game at
the Barclays Center in Carolina’s upset win over No. 9/9
Iowa State on Jan. 3, scoring two points and collecting
two rebounds.
“QuOtable”
“I’m real proud of our guys. They were willing to fight.
Like the old saying says, sometimes the bear gets you and
sometimes you get the bear. Today, the bear got us. That’s
who we were up until January 3rd and that’s what we’re
looking for to refine and kind of rediscover our team. I
think that we did after we played Tennessee. Right after
that game we figured out that we needed to rediscover
ourselves. We’ve done that in the last two days of practice.
I couldn’t be prouder of the fight and the attention to
detail that we played with today. It’s hard to beat anybody,
none the less the number one team in the country when
we shot 22 percent, but if our fight is where it needs to be,
we’ll be ok.” - South Carolina head coach Frank Martin’s
opening statement after his team’s matchup vs. Kentucky on
Jan. 24.
lSu nOtableS
- Junior forward Demetrius Henry and sophomore guard
Justin McKie did not play vs. LSU due to concussions..
- After either setting or tying a season-high in rebounds
in each of the last two games, Michael Carrera set yet
another high mark for the season with 10 boards. Four
would come on the offensive end.
- The 13 blocks were the most by any Carolina opponent
this season. The previous high for an opponent was nine
by Kentucky in the previous game.
- Tonight was the team’s first loss at the Pete Maravich
Center since 2009. The loss evens the all-time series at 15.
- The Gamecocks owned a 19-7 advantage in offensive rebounds, but it only led to a 12-7 margin in second-chance
points. Opponents are averaging just under six offensive
rebounds per game in the last three contests.
kentucky nOtableS
- Saturday’s game vs. Kentucky was the sixth sellout in
Colonial Life Arena history for a Gamecock men’s basketball game and the first since also facing Kentucky on
Jan. 22, 2011.
- Today’s game was the seventh time this season that Carolina held an opponent to under 60 points, the team had
been 6-0 in those games until today.
- This was Carolina’s 12th meeting with the Associated
Press’ No.1 team. The loss moves the Gamecocks to 1-11,
with the lone win coming against Kentucky in 2010. The
previous meeting with a No. 1 was last season against
Florida.
- Kentucky held a 21-6 advantage in points off turnovers
for the game. It was the largest margin of any Carolina
game so far this season, and the second-most allowed to
any opponent this season (23 to Alabama).
tenneSSee nOtableS
- Sindarius Thornwell led the team in scoring with 17
point. It was the sophomore’s highest-scoring game since
posting 20 against Charlotte on Nov. 21. He added a
season-high eight free throws made to go along with his
four field goals.
- Michael Carrera pulled down a season-high nine rebounds (five offensive) in the game, six of which came in
the second half. As a team, South Carolina recorded 17
offensive rebounds and limited Tennessee to five.
- Carolina made 14-of-15 free throw attempts in the game
(93.3 percent), including all 13 second-half attempts. The
mark is the highest in the Frank Martin era.
aubuRn nOtableS
- The Gamecocks made exactly 50 percent of their field
goal attempts, the fourth time this season hitting half or
more in a game. It is the first time since Jan. 29 of last
season (vs. Texas A&M) that the team made 50 percent
or better in a conference game.
- Laimonas Chatkevicius recorded his second doubledouble of the season, pulling down 11 rebounds to go
with 15 points.
- Duane Notice led the team in scoring with 16 points. It
marks the sixth time this season he has scored 15 points or
more and snaps a three-game stretch of scoring under 10
points. He has led the team in scoring six times.
- The eight free throws made tie a season low, set previously vs. Charlotte. The 53 percent from the charity stripe
is the worst in a game since March 8, 2014 (50 percent,
vs. Mississippi State).
alabama nOtableS
- The Carolina bench outscored its Alabama counterparts
27-16. The +11 margin is the largest in any game since a
+23 performance in the win over Cornell.
- There was a combined 54 fouls called in the game. The
27 fouls on the Gamecocks were the second-most all season and the 27 from Alabama were the most committed
against the Gamecocks all season.
- Laimonas Chatkevicius scored his 400th career point in
the second half of the win. He is the fourth player to reach
that milestone so far this season.
- Michael Carrera’s game-high eight rebounds matched a
season high. He also set a new season-high in points (12)
and free throws made (7).
- The win over Alabama is the third this season over a
team currently in the NCAA Top 40 for RPI. The Tide
came into tonight ranked 33rd, Iowa State is 21st and
Oklahoma State is 27th.
Ole mISS nOtableS
- Senior guard Tyrone Johnson led the Gamecocks in scoring for the second-straight game, marking the fourth time
this season he has led or shared the team lead in scoring.

high with five assists vs. the Rebels. He is now averaging
3.0 assists per game this season.
- The Gamecocks fall to 1-12 all-time in games played in
Oxford vs. the Rebels.
FlORIda nOtableS
- Tyrone Johnson recorded his second 20-point game of
the season, the first since scoring a career-high 21 against
Baylor.
- South Carolina shot 85.2 percent at the free throw line,
the best all season in games with ten or more made free
throws. Five different players had perfect nights, with
Johnson making all nine for a personal career high.
- Tonight was the first game where the opposition outscored Carolina in the paint. Florida had a 26-22 advantage with a defense that stifled a Gamecock offense that
averaged over 35 points in the paint through the first 11
games.

to stay home. Sindarius Thornwell, Marcus Stroman

for local kids to believe in what we do and for P.J. to
believe in what those guys did and believe in what we
did makes me extremely excited. A 6-7 guard, who is
a point guard, who knows how to play off the ball. He
has the ability, just like Chris (Silva) to be a tremendous defender. We are super excited for what those
two guys will bring to the table. They complement our
team in ways that we need and we are lucky to have
both of them.”

and block shots with the best of them. Chris is a tremendous young man who is fully committed to the
Gamecocks. I couldn’t be more excited to add him to
our front line, and add his athleticism, toughness and
shot-blocking ability.”

game 27 - Georgia 73, South Carolina 56
Feb. 22, 2014/Colonial Life Arena
atHenS, Ga. - South Carolina (7-11, 0-5 SEC) suffered a 97-76 loss on the road in SEC play at
Georgia (10-7, 4-1 SEC) on Wednesday night. Freshman guard Sindarius Thornwell scored a season
high 26 points to lead four Gamecocks in double figures in the contest.
Thornwell netted his fourth 20-point game of the season, and surpassed his previous season high
of 25 points from earlier this month versus LSU. Thornwell hit 8-of-12 attempts from the floor and
was 9-of-12 from the free throw line. He also collected four rebounds and dished four of Carolina’s
eight assists in the game.
Senior guard Brenton Williams responded after a tough outing versus Ole Miss last Saturday, posting 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting from the field and four 3s. Freshman guards Duane Notice and
Jaylen Shaw added 14 and 12 points, respectively, in the game.
Georgia was led by junior forward Nemanja Djurisic with 22 points, while Kenny Gaines added 14
and Brandon Morris 13. The Bulldogs posted 10 3s in the game, and hit 33-of-50 from the foul line.
A jumper from Thornwell gave the Gamecocks a 6-4 lead with 17:31 remaining in the first half, but
nine-straight points from Djurisic followed by back-to-back Bulldog 3s saw the home team hold a
17-8 upperhand four minutes later.
Notice broke the streak with a jumper in the lane, and Shaw hit a 3 with 12:22 on the clock to pull
Carolina within six at 19-13.
Georgia held on to a double-digit lead until a floater from Notice near the eight-minute mark
brought the Gamecocks within nine at 30-21.
Foul trouble plagued the Gamecocks, with sophomore forward Mindaugas Kacinas and freshman
forward Desmond Ringer both with 3 and forced to sit on the bench much of the half. The Bulldog
lead stood at 13 at the under-four minute media timeout with 3:51 to play before the break.
South Carolina missed four from the free throw line down the stretch, and UGA led by as many
as 15, but sophomore forward Laimonas Chatkevicius pulled down three-consecutive defensive rebounds, and Notice and Williams added lay-ins and the Georgia lead was just nine at the break,
45-34.
The Bulldogs scored six 3-pointers in the opening half and out-rebounded the Gamecocks by seven
at 21-14. Notice led Carolina with 13 points in the stanza, hitting 4-of-5 from the field. The teams
combined for 30 fouls in the set.
Georgia’s Charles Mann was called for a flagrant foul just 30 seconds into the second half, sending
Notice to the line for two attempts. He hit one from the line and Mann and Williams traded 3-pointers moments later to put the score at 48-38 UGA with 18 to play.
Consecutive turnovers from the Gamecocks saw the Georgia lead push to 22 at 64-42 with just over
14 minutes on the clock.
Chatkevicius fouled out with 12 minutes to play, and freshman forward Demetrius Henry and
sophomore forward Michael Carrera were both on the bench with 3 each.
Thornwell scored on consecutive possessions midway through the half, but the Bulldog lead hovered
near 20 points through the next several minutes of play.
Sophomore forward Brian Steele hit a 3 and earned a steal at the opposite end on the ensuing UGA
possession near the four-minute mark. Freshman guard Jaylen Shaw gave the Gamecocks another 3
at the top of the key and the score stood at 87-70 Georgia with 3:33 to play.
Thornwell hit a season high with 26 points on two lay-ups with 90 seconds to play, but Georgia
posted the 97-76 victory.
South Carolina finished the contest hitting 45.8 percent (22-48) from the field, compared to
55.1 percent (27-49) from Georgia. The Bulldogs attempted 50 free throws in the contest, a new
Carolina opponent record in league play, surpassing UGA’s 46 attempts during last season’s contest
in Columbia.
COLUmBia, S.C. - the South Carolina men’s basketball team dropped a 73-56
decision to Georgia in an SEC matchup on Saturday afternoon at Colonial Life
Arena.
The Gamecocks (10-17, 3-11 SEC) and Bulldogs went to halftime interlocked at
34-34, but a cold-shooting second half by South Carolina allowed Georgia (15-11,
9-5) to pull away for the win. The Gamecocks were 5-of-31 from the floor in the
final 20 minutes.
For the game, South Carolina shot 26.3 percent from the field (15-of-57), with
seven of its made baskets coming from behind the arc. Freshman Sindarius Thornwell tallied 18 points, dished out five assists and grabbed four rebounds to lead the
Gamecocks, while senior Brenton Williams reached double figures for the 17th time
in his last 19 games with 16 points, including four 3-pointers. Sophomore forward
Michael Carrera pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds and chipped in three points.
Georgia shot at a 44.2 percent clip for the game, including 50 percent from deep
(8-of-16). The Bulldogs also held the edge in rebounds (40-38) and points in the
paint (24-12). Sophomore guard Kenny Gaines fired in a game-high 27 points on
9-of-14 shooting to lead the Bulldogs, while junior forward Marcus Thornton contributed a double-double with 12 points and 10 boards. Sophomore forward Brandon Morris also had 12 points on the afternoon.
Williams paced the Gamecocks early on, making all three of his 3-point attempts
in the first eight minutes. His three from the corner at the 12:23 mark gave South
Carolina a 13-6 lead, capping a 10-0 Gamecock run.
Georgia scrapped its way back to take a 22-19 lead with a 16-6 run during the next
four minutes. Gaines was instrumental in pushing the Bulldogs in front with nine
points during the run, including a pair of 3-pointers.
The Bulldogs held a 34-31 lead with less than a minute left in the half, but Gamecock forward Brian Steele drained a three from the top of the key with 25 seconds
remaining to tie the game heading into the locker room.
Thornwell scored 11 points in the half to lead Carolina, while Williams added nine.
Carerra pulled down eight rebounds, including six on the offensive end. Gaines carried Georgia with 15 points, and Morris chipped in nine.
The Gamecocks were unable to get their offense going in the second half as they
missed their first 14 shots from the field, allowing Georgia to open on a 16-1 run to
build a 50-35 lead. Thornwell sank a floater in the lane at the 10:52 mark to make
it a 50-37 ballgame, but that was as close as South Carolina was able pull the rest
of the way.

Frank Martin was named the head men’s basketball coach at
the University of South Carolina on March 27, 2012, becoming the 32nd head coach in the history of the South Carolina
program, which enters its 107th season as a varsity sport in
2014-15. Martin owns a 145-92 (.611) overall record as a head
coach, entering his eighth season overall, and third season at
South Carolina.
Since his appointment as head coach in Columbia, Martin,
48, has become a fixture in the community. He has spoken at
numerous events, including Gamecock Club Fan Fests, numerous community council and rotary club events, coaching clinics,
and the Fathers and Families Decades of Dads event, among
others. He was also selected as a Court Coach for USA Basketball in June 2012, assisting Florida head coach Billy Donovan
with the Men’s U18 National Team training camp in Colorado
Springs, Colo., at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. The camp
was used to determine the 12-member roster that represented
the USA at the 2012 FIBA Americas U18 Championship in
late June.
Martin was honored again during the summer of 2013, serving
as an assistant coach for the United States on head coach Bob
McKillop’s staff alongside Michigan head coach John Beilein for
the U.S. Men’s World University Games team. The squad spent
time in Colorado Springs at training camp, before embarking on
a two-week journey to Kazan, Russia, in early July, for the event.
He furthered his international coaching experience as head
coach of USA East Coast during the summer of 2014, which
represented the United States at the Tallinn Cup in Estonia.
During his first season (2012-13) in Columbia, Martin led his
squad to a 14-18 record, which included a 4-14 mark in SEC
contests. The Garnet and Black captured the Hoops For Hope
Classic tournament crown after posting a 4-0 record competing
in the event with home victories over Milwaukee and Rider, before defeating Missouri State in overtime, and UALR in Puerto
Vallarta, Mexico, over the Thanksgiving holiday. Freshman
forward Michael Carrera was honored after the conclusion of
the regular season with selection to the 2013 SEC All-Freshman Team, as voted on by the league’s head coaches. During
the spring of 2013, the Gamecock coaching staff signed seven
freshmen, while welcoming Villanova transfer Ty Johnson to the
team, a recruiting class which ranked No. 23 in the nation according to ESPN.com.
Martin’s second season (2013-14) leading the Gamecocks saw
the squad win four of its final six games of the year, including
two games in the SEC Tournament, marking the first Tournament wins for the Gamecocks since the 2008 campaign. Martin
and his staff put together a non-conference schedule that challenged his team to prepare for the rigors of the SEC campaign.
The Gamecocks posted several quality victories, including
a win versus Saint Mary’s at the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond
Head Classic in December, and home victories versus Alabama,
Vanderbilt and No. 17 Kentucky to name a few.
Martin tutored his second SEC All-Freshman Team honoree
in as many seasons, as rookie guard Sindarius Thornwell led all
freshmen in the SEC in league games in points (15.6) and assists
(4.0) to earn a spot on the postseason team. Thornwell also garnered three SEC Freshman of the Week awards, and was named
the Feb. 18 Wayman Tisdale National Freshman of the Week.
A native of Miami, Fla., Martin earned his bachelor’s degree
in physical education from Florida International in 1993. He
and his wife, Anya, have three children, Brandon, Amalia and
Christian.

Nov. 18, 2014/Colonial Life Arena
COLUmBia, S.C. - In the first-ever meeting between South
Carolina and Benedict College, the Gamecocks came away
with a decisive 92-47 win in the exhibition contest at Colonial
Life Arena. Senior point guard Tyrone Johnson led all scorers
with 23 points and added six rebounds and six assists.
COLUmBia, S.C. - The South Carolina men’s basketball team (1-0)
Benedict got on the scoreboard first with a jumper from forward Lafonzo Smith, but the Gamecocks stormed out to a 9-0
run ignited by the play of Johnson whose one-handed dunk
started it. Three minutes later, a run-out led to Johnson lobbing the ball up to Thornwell for an emphatic alley-oop.
Henry’s second dunk in the opening two minutes of the contest gave the
Gamecocks an early 8-6 lead over the Ospreys. That dunk would spark a
run that would give the team a lead for good, as the score would balloon
to 22-8 over the next six minutes. The team would not trail in the game.
Henry scored six of Carolina’s first 14 points with his third dunk of the
half at the 15-minute mark and the Gamecocks extended their lead to 12
points at the under-12 minute media timeout at 25-13.
Just before the 13-minute mark, the Tigers closed to within
six at 13-7 with a 3-pointer from guard Justin Peeples. The
Gamecocks responded with six points from Notice and Johnson’s first 3-pointer of the game to start an 18-4 run over the
next five-plus minutes to push the lead to 37-14 with 5:17 left
on the clock.
Just as Benedict was able to get its deficit down to 17, Carolina ended the half on a 16-2 run with back-to-back 3-pointers coming from Johnson and Thornwell to go with six points
from junior forward Laimonas Chatkevicius. The Gamecocks
took a 55-25 lead into the break after shooting 19-of-34 (55.9
percent) and holding the Tigers to only eight made field goals
in the opening 20 minutes.
Carolina extended its lead to 39 nearly seven minutes into the
second half after holding Benedict without a made field goal
through the first seven-plus minutes of the set. The Gamecocks
continued to build on their lead the rest of the way, ending the
game with a 92-47 win.
Junior guard Austin Constable did not play in the exhibition
contest due to a left knee injury, and sophomore guard Justin
McKie did not play due to a concussion.
exhibition
opened the 2014-15 season Friday night with a matchup with the North
Florida Ospreys (0-1). Of the 11 players who saw time in the game, six
would score eight points or more to spark an 81-56 win. Demetrius Henry and Tyrone Johnson led the team with 12 points apiece and Mindaugas
Kacinas went for nine points and 11 rebounds.
The Gamecocks pushed their lead to twenty at 36-16 with just over five
minutes remaining in the opening half on a dunk from junior forward
Laimonas Chatkevicius. That would be the exclamation point on what
would be a 13-0 run that spanned from 9:39 to 4:07 in the half.
Beau Beech would break the Osprey’s scoreless stretch, but by then it
would be too late. Carolina held a 48-27 upperhand at the half after hitting 53.1 percent (17-32) from the floor in the opening 20 minutes. Balanced scoring in the first half propelled the Gamecocks, as six different
Carolina players scored at least six points in the half, led by Henry’s eight.
The play down low would be the difference in the first half, setting a
tone that would prevail for the entire game. In the first 20 minutes the
Gamecocks held a 26-10 advantage in points in the paint with a 21-11
rebounding margin.
Carolina continued its strong offensive performance early in the second
half, as both Henry and Johnson reached double-figures before the first
media timeout. Battling foul trouble, the Ospreys struggled offensively,
hitting just three of their first nine shots of the second half, trailing the
Gamecocks 57-34 at the 15-minute mark. The lead would grow as large
as 29 points in the convincing win.
As a team, South Carolina made better than half of its shots (29-57) and
won the battle of the boards 42-28 with ten offensive rebounds. The
bench would be featured often in the game, with the six reserves pitching
in a combined 35 points. In his first collegiate game, freshman guard
Marcus Stroman played like a veteran with a line of six points, six assists,
two steals and no turnovers. As a team, South Carolina committed just
nine turnovers (two in the first half ) while forcing its opponent into 15.

COLUmBia, S.C. - The South Carolina men’s basketball team hosted Baylor Tuesday afternoon as part of the ESPN College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon. The noon start wouldn’t faze either side, as the physical matchup was
closely contested throughout. The Bears (2-0) were able to keep Carolina
(1-1) at arm’s length for much of the game, and were able to seal the game
with a pair of free throws late in a 69-65 win.
Senior guard Tyrone Johnson scored a career-high 21 points to lead the
Gamecocks in a game that featured six ties and six lead changes.
Both teams were cold in first half, with Carolina shooting 32 percent and
Baylor 38. It was even colder from deep, with the two sides combining to
hit just three of 20 3-point attempts. The charity stripe would be the most
forgiving area, with Baylor hitting 11-of-12 and Carolina making 9-of-10.
Baylor controlled the game early, but a 7-0 run from 9:23 to 7:15 of first
half gave the Gamecocks an 18-16 lead. As was the case all day long, when
one side seemed to gain momentum it would be quickly snatched away, and
the Bears would use a quick 6-0 run in the final two minutes of the half
to take a 30-27 lead. A Johnathan Motley jumper that fell just before the
buzzer capped the run, the forward would lead all scorers in the half with 13.
The Gamecocks went for much of the opening frame without starters
Duane Notice (four minutes) and Demetrius Henry (seven), who were
plagued by early foul trouble.
In the final 20 minutes, the Gamecocks were unable to cut deep enough
into the Baylor lead, taking a brief 36-35 lead with 16:55 to play before a
12-4 run from the visitors put them ahead for good. With Motley picking
up his fourth foul with 13:19 to play, Baylor’s senior guard Kenny Chery
made up for the scoring slack by scoring 18 of his 20 points in the second
half.
The combo of Johnson and Sindarius Thornwell would counter the Baylor
duo all game long, though, with Johnson’s 21 and Thornwell’s 16 leading
the offense. After scoring 42 points as a group in the season opener against
North Florida, the Carolina bench scored just 14 on Tuesday, with 10 coming from another strong performance by freshman Marcus Stroman. The
point guard scored 10 points with five rebounds and three assists in 27
minutes of action.
The Bears converted a turnover into a basket with 4:43 to play in the game
that completed a 7-0 run to give them their biggest lead of the game at 6454. The Gamecocks responded with a 7-0 run of their own over the next two
minutes to make it 64-61 thanks to a fast-break layup from Thornwell and
three straight points from Stroman to put a bow on the run.
A dunk from Michael Carrera with 32 seconds to go cut it to a onepossession game, 66-63, but after Baylor hit the front end of a pair of free
throws the Gamecocks missed a 3 in transition and took up too much time
committing a foul. Despite Taurean Prince missing both free throws on the
other end, the home side was left with less than three seconds following a
layup by Johnson to make it 67-65.
After a Gamecock foul on the inbounds pass, Chery hit both attempts at
the line to take away the chance at a buzzer-beater.

Game #4 - Charlotte 65, South Carolina 63
Nov. 21, 2014/TD Arena/Charleston Classic
CHaRLeStOn, S.C. - An opportunistic defense would drive
the South Carolina men’s basketball team to a win over Cornell
on the opening night of the Charleston Classic, held at TD
Arena. The Gamecocks (2-1) forced 17 turnovers en route to a
69-45 win, holding the Big Red (2-2) to 27 percent shooting
from the field.
Sindarius Thornwell led the team with 14 points despite playing just six minutes of the second half. Mindaugas Kacinas
pulled down 11 rebounds to go with 10 points for the team’s
first double-double of the season and his partner on the post
Laimonas Chatkevicius added eight points and seven boards
off the bench. Every player on the active roster saw time on the
floor, with ten scoring at least two points.
After an even start to the game, Carolina went on a 13-0 run
from the 15:20 mark until just under ten minute remaining to
open up a 22-11 lead. Five different players contributed to the
game-changing run. Thornwell led the early charge, scoring 10
of the team’s first 12 points before ending the half with 13.
Bench play would be the difference maker in the first 20
minutes, as the Gamecock reserves outscored their Cornell
counterparts 15-0. Kacinas and Chatkevicius combined for 10
points and 14 rebounds, and Marcus Stroman pitched in five
points and three steals.
Though it would shoot just 36 percent as a team, Carolina
carried a 35-21 lead into the break after forcing 13 turnovers
and limiting the Big Red to a tiny 30 percent on 7-of-23 shooting. The Gamecocks had averaged just 13 turnovers forced per
game in its first two contests of the 2014-15 season coming
into Thursday night.
The second half would be no different, as the lead would
dip to 13 with 18:49 to play, but a 13-1 run from then until
the 13:19 mark set the team back on the right path. The lead
would grow to as large as 28 points. The key in the final 20
minutes would be rebounding, as the Gamecocks enjoyed a
23-15 advantage over a Cornell side that shot just 24 percent
in the period.
game #3
CHaRLeStOn, S.C. - A potential game-winning three pointer
from Sindarius Thornwell caromed just off as Charlotte (3-0)
earned a 65-63 win over South Carolina (2-2) Friday night in the
semifinals of the Charleston Classic. Hot shooting from the 49ers
early in the second half erased a seven-point Gamecock lead at the
half.
With just over a minute to play in a 63-all game, Thornwell
blocked a 3 to start a fastbreak with Marcus Stroman. Thornwell
would take a contested floater in transition and missed, and the follow from Duane Notice would be slapped off the backboard. Charlotte would make a pair of free throws on the ensuing possession to
provide the game’s final points, but Carolina still had chances late.
Inbounding from half court with 14 seconds to play and trailing
by just two, Carolina was called for a five-second violation. Before
Charlotte could inbound a foul put them at the line for a chance
to seal it, but both attempts would be missed. On the second miss,
a scramble for the ball would be called in favor of the 49ers, but
after review the Gamecocks would get one last chance. Thornwell’s
attempt for a 3 hit the rim, but did not connect.
The first half was dominated by Carolina after it used an 11-2 run
from the 16:28 mark to 13:11 going from down 6-4 to up 15-8.
The Gamecocks would make six-straight field goals early in that
stretch and 10-of-15 total in the first 10 minutes of action.
The 49ers returned that favor to start the second half, hitting 7-of9 shots in the first six minutes to erase Carolina’s 36-29 halftime
lead while the Gamecocks would shoot just 37 percent in the final
20 minutes. The biggest disparity with the second-half shooting
was the 49ers making 4-of-5 3s, while Carolina hit just twice on
nine attempts
A 10-0 run from 12:41 to 9:09 in the second half gave Charlotte
its largest lead of the game, a 55-48 advantage. Mindaugas Kacinas
made sure the momentum would not swing all the way to the visitors, scoring seven-straight points on his own to put Carolina up
57-55 and force a timeout. The 49ers were able to hold on for the
late win despite not making a field goal for the final three minutes
of action.
Thornwell would lead all scorers in the game with 20 points, 18
of which came in the first half. Michael Carrera and Kacinas joined
him in double figures, with 11 apiece.

CHaRLeStOn, S.C. - The Gamecocks (2-3) wrapped up play at the
Charleston Classic Sunday evening, dropping a 68-63 contest to Akron
(3-1). Shooting slumps bookending the game would be the difference
as the Carolina offense lost its third game of the season by five points
or less.
The offense struggled to find its rhythm in the first half. After a jumper
from Sindarius Thornwell in the team’s first possession of the game, the
Gamecocks missed their next eight shots and was 1-of-12 while the Zips
went ahead 10-4. While the team’s shooting luck would improve, it
would shoot just 29 percent from the floor in the first half.
Akron was never able to put up a big lead during the Carolina cold
streak thanks to solid rebounding and a strong defensive effort. After a
layup at the 6:19 mark to put the Zips ahead 21-18, they would hit just
1-of-9 attempts until the halftime horn. Free throws would carry them to
the break, as they made seven in the final four minutes.
Coming in averaging 12 offensive rebounds per game, the Gamecocks
had 15 in the first half alone to allow them to attempt 11 more shots.
Thornwell had four offensive boards on his own, as did Mindaugas Kacinas. Marcus Stroman led the offense with six points in 15 minutes off
the bench.
The Zips came out of the locker room on a hot streak offensively, hitting
six of their first seven shots to build their biggest lead of the night at the
16-minute mark, 44-32. A quick 7-0 run from the Gamecocks cut into
that margin and forced a timeout, with layups from Kacinas and Chatkevicius that sandwhiched a 3-pointer from Duane Notice.
After avoiding a big deficit, the Gamecocks chased the Zips over the
next six minutes of the game with the lead fluctuating from eight down
to one before a Chakevicius free throw with 6:55 to play brought about
the game’s first tie since it was 2-2.
The Carolina offense went into a four-minute scoreless stretch soon
after the tie that allowed Akron to build up a 63-58 lead before a Thornwell jumper with 34 seconds left. Turnovers on four straight possessions
in that stretch for South Carolina would be the key.
After Thornwell’s jumper made it 63-60, the Zips hit 5-of-6 free throws
to maintain a two-possession lead and outlast the final comeback.
Thornwell led the team with 13 points and was joined in double figures
by Chatkevicius (11) and Duane Notice (12). The team pulled down a
season-high 21 offensive rebounds, leading to 14 more shots than Akron
and 17 second-chance points.

COLUmBia, S.C. - The South Carolina men’s basketball team shook off a brief
two-game losing streak Wednesday night, winning a shootout with UNC Asheville
89-75. After falling behind early, the Gamecocks (3-3) went on a big run to claim
the lead and out-gun the Bulldogs (2-3) behind five different players scoring in
double figures. Laimonas Chatkevicius led the way with 17 points and 13 rebounds
after being inserted as a starter for the first time this season.
Asheville jumped out to an early 12-6 lead on a 3 from guard Andrew Rowsey,
but the Gamecocks answered with a 21-2 run over the next six minutes to hold a
27-14 lead after a lay-up and make at the foul line from rookie guard Marcus Stroman. The Gamecocks would hit 8-of-11 attempts from the floor during the stretch,
including a pair of 3s from sophomore guard Justin McKie and Chatkevicius, and
two lay-ups from sophomore guard Sindarius Thornwell.
Asheville would battle back, answering the Carolina run with an 8-0 run of its
own on a pair of 3s from Rowsey and Kevin Vannata and a make underneath from
Sam Hughes. Sophomore guard Duane Notice would hit the third Carolina 3 of
the half to halt the Bulldog run and put the score at 30-22 Gamecocks with seven
minutes remaining in the opening half.
The Bulldogs continued to chip away at the Carolina lead, pulling within five
at 34-29 on Rowsey’s 16th point of the half with just under a minute remaining.
Senior guard Tyrone Johnson responded after a Gamecock timeout, however, hitting a 3 with 30 seconds remaining to give Carolina a 37-29 advantage at the break.
South Carolina shot well in the opening 20 minutes of play, hitting 48.4 percent
(15-31), compared to 28.6 percent (10-35) for the Bulldogs.
Sophomore forward Demetrius Henry gave Carolina a 10-point lead at 46-36
early in the second half with a pair of free throws after a Bulldog foul. Rowsey
connected for another 3, but the Gamecocks maintained their lead with a 3 from
Notice and a lay-in and make and the foul line from Johnson, putting the score at
53-41 Carolina with 13:06 to play.
Rowsey collected his fourth foul of the game with 12:29 remaining in the game,
forcing him to the bench. A dunk from Notice and a tip-in from Henry pushed
the Carolina lead to 11, but Asheville closed the gap to within eight on a 3 from
David Robertson with just under 10 minutes to play. The Bulldogs called a timeout
trailing 57-49.
Chatkevicius collected his first-career double-double moments later, hitting his
second 3 of the night following a tip-in, pushing Carolina’s lead back to 12 with
7:45 to play.
A coast-to-coast jumper in the lane from Stroman saw the Gamecock lead grow to
18 points at 70-52 with just over six minutes to play. After an Asheville turnover,
and one from Carolina on the opposite end, Thornwell gave the Gamecocks a
20-point advantage on a steal and two-handed dunk from the baseline.
The Bulldogs would heat up from deep in the waning minutes to cut the lead
as low as 10, 85-75 with 51 seconds to play, but the Gamecocks would not let
them get any closer.
Both teams were exceptional from 3-point range as Carolina made 8-of-17 and
Asheville lived off the deep ball with a 15-of-29 day. Rowsy would score 30 of the
team’s 73 points, becoming the first 30-point scorer allowed by the Gamecocks this
season. On two-point field goals alone in the game, the visitors made just 8-of-34
attempts and allowed the Gamecocks to own the paint by a 38-16 margin.
game 6
HUntinGtOn, W.Va. - In its first true road test of the season,
the South Carolina men’s basketball team (4-3) passed the test on
both ends of the floor in a 77-59 win over Marshall (3-4). Bolstered
by a career-high 27 points from Duane Notice and a 41-20 advantage in points in the paint, the team led for nearly the entire game.
The Carolina defense hounded the Herd in the first half, limiting
the home side to just seven percent from long range (1-of-14). Marshall wouldn’t fare much better from inside as it hit just 5-of-29 attempts overall in the first 20 minutes. The Gamecocks would counter with a two-man attack offensively to carry the team early on.
Notice scored the team’s first seven points of the game on a wide
array of shots, from a pair of free throws to open the scoring to a
layup that capped his one-man run and gave the team an early 7-3
lead. His efforts were the impetus for a 13-0 run that helped the
Gamecocks seize a 15-3 lead. Laimonas Chatkevicius joined in on
the offense to help the team extend that lead, each scoring 13 points
as Carolina ran out to a 39-20 halftime lead.
The defensive intensity would not stay in the locker room after the
break, with nine more turnovers forced. The Herd would shoot a
respectable 40 percent in the final half, but still lacked the interior
defense to slow down Carolina and relied on the charity stripe to
score a third of its 39 second-half points. Despite a 1-of-9 second
half from three, the Gamecocks scored on 13-of-20 two-point field
goals in 20 minutes.
The closest Marshall would come in the second half was 16 points.
When it managed to even get that close, an 8-0 run coming off
a trio of Marshall turnovers gave Carolina a 61-37 lead with ten
minutes left to play in the game, its largest of the day.
Along with Notice and Chatkevicius, who finished with 15 points
on 7-of-9 shooting, Justin McKie and Sindarius Thornwell also
scored in double figures. After setting or matching his career high
in two of the last three games, McKie set an even higher mark with
12 points on 5-of-8 shooting. Thornwell combined his ten points
with a team-high ten rebounds for his third career double-double.
On the defensive side, the Gamecocks forced 19 turnovers and
held Marshall to 28 percent overall and 19 percent from three. The
20 first-half points allowed by Carolina were the least so far this
season.

COLUmBia, S.C. - The South Carolina men’s basketball team hosted Baylor Tuesday afternoon as part of the ESPN College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon. The noon start wouldn’t faze either side, as the physical matchup was
closely contested throughout. The Bears (2-0) were able to keep Carolina
(1-1) at arm’s length for much of the game, and were able to seal the game
with a pair of free throws late in a 69-65 win.
Senior guard Tyrone Johnson scored a career-high 21 points to lead the
Gamecocks in a game that featured six ties and six lead changes.
Both teams were cold in first half, with Carolina shooting 32 percent and
Baylor 38. It was even colder from deep, with the two sides combining to
hit just three of 20 3-point attempts. The charity stripe would be the most
forgiving area, with Baylor hitting 11-of-12 and Carolina making 9-of-10.
Baylor controlled the game early, but a 7-0 run from 9:23 to 7:15 of first
half gave the Gamecocks an 18-16 lead. As was the case all day long, when
one side seemed to gain momentum it would be quickly snatched away, and
the Bears would use a quick 6-0 run in the final two minutes of the half
to take a 30-27 lead. A Johnathan Motley jumper that fell just before the
buzzer capped the run, the forward would lead all scorers in the half with 13.
The Gamecocks went for much of the opening frame without starters
Duane Notice (four minutes) and Demetrius Henry (seven), who were
plagued by early foul trouble.
In the final 20 minutes, the Gamecocks were unable to cut deep enough
into the Baylor lead, taking a brief 36-35 lead with 16:55 to play before a
12-4 run from the visitors put them ahead for good. With Motley picking
up his fourth foul with 13:19 to play, Baylor’s senior guard Kenny Chery
made up for the scoring slack by scoring 18 of his 20 points in the second
half.
The combo of Johnson and Sindarius Thornwell would counter the Baylor
duo all game long, though, with Johnson’s 21 and Thornwell’s 16 leading
the offense. After scoring 42 points as a group in the season opener against
North Florida, the Carolina bench scored just 14 on Tuesday, with 10 coming from another strong performance by freshman Marcus Stroman. The
point guard scored 10 points with five rebounds and three assists in 27
minutes of action.
The Bears converted a turnover into a basket with 4:43 to play in the game
that completed a 7-0 run to give them their biggest lead of the game at 6454. The Gamecocks responded with a 7-0 run of their own over the next two
minutes to make it 64-61 thanks to a fast-break layup from Thornwell and
three straight points from Stroman to put a bow on the run.
A dunk from Michael Carrera with 32 seconds to go cut it to a onepossession game, 66-63, but after Baylor hit the front end of a pair of free
throws the Gamecocks missed a 3 in transition and took up too much time
committing a foul. Despite Taurean Prince missing both free throws on the
other end, the home side was left with less than three seconds following a
layup by Johnson to make it 67-65.
After a Gamecock foul on the inbounds pass, Chery hit both attempts at
the line to take away the chance at a buzzer-beater.

Game #10 - South carolina 78, coker 52
dec. 21, 2014/colonial life arena
COLUmBia, S.C. - Emboldened by a raucous crowd of over 11,000 fans, the
South Carolina Gamecocks (6-3) earned a big win over archrival Clemson (64) Friday evening at Colonial Life Arena. Duane Notice would score 14 of his
game-high 19 points over the final 20 minutes, helping Carolina turn a two-point
halftime deficit into a 68-45 win. The sophomore guard would nearly match the
entire offensive output of the Tigers, who as a team made just five field goals and
scored 15 points in the second half.
With Clemson holding a 30-28 lead coming out of halftime, the two teams
traded possessions and were knotted at 35 after a 3 from Clemson’s Jaron Blossomgame with 15:09 to play. That would be the visiting side’s final field goal
made over the next ten minutes, as the Gamecocks embarked on a 26-2 run
in that span to put the game away. A barrage of 3-pointers from the Carolina
guards sparked the streak, with Notice making two and Sindarius Thornwell adding another that ballooned the lead into double digits and forced a timeout with
ten minutes to play.
Free throws from both Demetrius Henry and Tyrone Johnson and a lay-up
from Johnson continued the run for the Gamecocks, as the Tigers scored just two
points the middle eight minutes of the half. Notice connected for his career-high
fifth 3 of the contest with 4:33 remaining to put the Carolina lead at 64-39.
After connecting on just 1-of-9 attempts from deep in the first half, the Gamecocks would hit on 6-of-13 in the second half. Four would come from Notice
alone. On the defensive end, South Carolina would limit the opposition to 1-of11 from long range.
In the opening half it was a game of runs, with the Gamecocks opening with a
10-0 run to take an early 16-7 advantage, holding the Tigers scoreless for nearly
six minutes. Notice hit Carolina’s first 3 of the game near the nine-minute mark
to push the lead to 10 at 19-9. A make at the foul line from Thornwell pushed the
lead to 11, but the Tigers responded with a 10-0 run of their own to pull within
one at 20-19 with 5:20 to play in the half, forcing a Carolina timeout.
Johnson collected his sixth assist of the half near the three-minute mark on a
nifty pass and lay-in under the basket from Mindaugas Kacinas to put the Carolina lead at four. A jumper from Rod Hall with just seven seconds left in the half
gave the Tigers their first lead since early in the half, and Clemson held a twopoint advantage at 30-28 at the break.
Clemson scored 14 points off of eight Gamecock turnovers in the first half,
compared to just four Carolina points off of seven Tiger giveaways. Laimonas
Chatkevicius led the Gamecocks with eight points in the opening set, while Henry and Kacinas added six apiece. After allowing the Tigers to score nearly half of
their points directly off turnovers in the first half, the Gamecocks would turn the
ball over just four times in the second half and kept the Tigers scoreless off them.
With the defensive effort in the second half by Carolina, the Tigers would make
just 17.9 percent of its 28 attempts and ended the game at 29.8 percent. It marks
the third straight game where an opponent has not been able to crack the 30
percent mark in a game. The 23-point win is the program’s largest in the storied
rivalry since a 28-point margin in 1971 and it is the biggest win by either side
since 1994.
game #9
COLUmBia, S.C. - A reliable inside scoring attack helped lead
South Carolina to its fifth-straight win of the season Sunday afternoon, as it defeated Coker College 78-52. The Gamecocks converted
on well over half their two-point attempts and scored 50 points in the
paint, helping to erase a brief deficit early in the game. The win moves
Carolina to 7-3 and marks the first time since the 2012-13 season
that the team has enjoyed a win streak this long.
The Cobras scored their first five points off of Gamecock turnovers
and held a 5-0 upperhand with 16:46 to play, but back-to-back layins from Tyrone Johnson and Duane Notice off Cobra turnovers halted the run. Both teams struggled to maintain possessions through the
next several minutes of play, with the Gamecocks having eight turnovers and Coker seven before the under-12 minute media timeout.
A 3 from Coker’s Aubrey Daniel knotted the game at 13 with just
under 10 minutes to play in the first half. The Gamecocks would
score eight unanswered to lead 21-13 before a lay-in from Coker’s
Jordan Scott stopped the run near the seven-minute mark.
Johnson took a defensive rebound coast-to-coast and pushed the
Gamecock lead to nine at 30-21 with 2:27 to play, and Notice sank a
3 just before the break for a 35-23 Carolina upperhand at half.
Demetrius Henry contributed six points and a blocked shot in the
final 3:29 of the half for nine points and two blocks at the break.
Notice’s 12 points led the Gamecocks in the opening set, and Scott
led Coker with seven points.
A pair of lay-ups from Notice and Henry and a 3 from Johnson
pushed the Carolina lead to 18 points at 42-24 early in the second
half. The team’s traded made baskets, but the Gamecocks began to
pull away, leading by 20 with 11:47 to play at 50-30. Carolina would
score the next six unanswered, capped by an emphatic breakaway
dunk from Sindarius Thornwell.
South Carolina led by as many as 27 in the second half, taking advantage of its size in the interior to make 60 percent of its two-point
field goals in the final 20 minutes (15-of-25).
After the foursome of Laimonas Chatkevicius, Henry, Johnson and
Notice joined together to score all 35 of the team’s first-half points,
the offense would be evenly distributed over the final 20 minutes.
Six different players would score four points or more in the second
half. Mindaugas Kacinas shined as the game wore down, collecting
seven points and five rebounds in just seven minutes played in the
final frame.

COLUmBia, S.C. - The South Carolina men’s basketball team
showed little signs of rust from the holiday break, clicking on both
ends of the floor in a convincing 91-54 win over North Carolina
A&T (2-13) Tuesday night. Six different players scored in double
figures for the Gamecocks (8-3), who shot 56 percent from the floor.
Strong man-to-man defense by the Gamecocks forced three early
turnovers, and A&T was not able to even attempt a field goal until
almost three full minutes had passed. It did not make a field goal until
the 16:40 mark, as South Carolina built an early 10-2 lead before the
first media timeout.
Laimonas Chatkevicius scored seven points with five rebounds in
the first five minutes of the game, and led all scorers with nine points
at the break. Despite a high success rate from deep, making 3-of-5
attempts in the first half, the Gamecocks opted to take it in the paint
offensively. That led to great success, as they would make 13-of-22
two-point field goals and outscored the Aggies 24-4 in the paint for
the opening 20 minutes and 42-14 for the game.
Marcus Stroman spearheaded the team’s fast break attack early, passing out five assists to go with five rebounds and three points in nine
minutes of the opening frame. Three of those assists would come on
fast-break layups. The freshman guard finished with five points, seven
assists and five rebounds.
The Aggies went almost five minutes without a field goal from the
eight-minute mark until 3:10 to go in the half, allowing the Gamecocks to take a 40-12 lead. The margin would grow as large as 4716 before the teams headed to the locker rooms for halftime. North
Carolina A&T shot 20 percent in the half (5-of-25) and did not hit
on any of its seven 3-point attempts.
In the second half the Aggies were able to find a rhythm offensively,
but still could not keep the Gamecocks from scoring inside. The Garnet and Black again hit better than half of its attempts from the field
in the final 20 minutes and also made 16 free throws in that span.
Mindaugas Kacinas led the charge offensively coming out of the
break, scoring eight points and pulling down four rebounds in 10
minutes off the bench. He had his second perfect shooting game of
the season, making all five field goals and also hit all six free throw attempts. He finished with a game-high 16 points, just two off matching his career high.
The team’s 55.8 percent success rate for the game is the fifth-highest
in any game during the Frank Martin era, and the 91 points are second only to last season’s 92 scored against Marshall.

game #12 - south carolina 64, no. 9 iowa state 60
jan. 3, 2015/barclays center/brooklyn, n.y.
BROOKLYn, n.Y. - On its biggest stage of the season so far, it was
an old standby that would help South Carolina notch a signature win
Saturday night, beating No. 9 Iowa State 64-60 at the Barclays Center in
New York City. The Gamecocks (9-3) used a stingy defense to limit the
Cyclones (10-2) to their lowest-scoring game since Jan. 23, 2013 while
clinching its first win over a top-ten opponent since the 2009-10 season.
The Gamecocks came out firing from the opening tip, streaking out to
a 15-4 lead through the first five minutes of the game. That burst was
led by Tyrone Johnson, who scored nine of those 15 points for the hot
start, making three straight field goals and adding in a pair of free throws.
The Cyclones answered with a run to cut the deficit to 20-17, but
another 12-3 run would give Carolina the game’s biggest lead at 32-20.
Foul troubles would weaken the frontcourt attack for the Gamecocks,
and Iowa State would take advantage with a strong transition offense
that cut into the lead and would enter the halftime break down just one
point, 36-35.
Coming out of the break the lead would never go higher than six points
as every basket would come at a premium. The Gamecocks would score
the first two baskets of the half, but Iowa State would remain in striking
distance and would finally take its first lead of the game with a 9-2 run
that turned a 45-39 deficit into a 48-47 lead.
The lead was traded back and forth on the ensuing possessions before
the Gamecocks found themselves down 51-49 with 6:30 to play in the
game. Playing shorthanded with foul troubles, Carolina would flip the
momentum with a quick 7-0 run over the next two minutes for the
56-51 lead.
After Mindaugas Kacinas and Laimonas Chatkevicius each picked up
their fifth fouls to leave the game with a 58-56 lead and two minutes to
play, Sindarius Thornwell would provide a trio of clutch plays that would
seal the win. The first was an old-fashioned 3-point play with 1:51 to go
gave Carolina a five-point lead 61-56.
He followed with another layup as the shot clock was winding down for
a 63-57 lead and just a minute to play. After Iowa State got within one
possession and had the ball looking for the tie, Thornwell made the steal
and hit a free throw to seal the win thanks to the four-point advantage.
South Carolina’s three starting guards - Johnson, Thornwell and Duane
Notice combined to score 41 of the team’s 64 total points. Johnson
(Plainfield, N.J.) and Notice (Woodbridge, Ontario) were playing in
front of a large group of family and friends, as was Brooklyn native
Shamiek Sheppard, who played in his second game back from injury.
game 12
game #13 - florida 72, south carolina 68
jan. 7, 2015/colonial life arena
COLUmBia, S.C.. - Two defensive powers collided Wednesday night in
the SEC opener, and a shooting slump in the second half for South Carolina
(9-4, 0-1 SEC) would be the difference in a 72-68 loss to Florida (7-6, 1-0
SEC). Tyrone Johnson led the team with 20 points, but the Gamecocks
would make only eight field goals in the second half to see their seven-game
win streak snapped.
The Gamecocks fought through early adversity in the opening half as Florida’s full-court pressure on defense forced turnovers and gave the Gators a
quick 17-6 lead just six minutes in. The strong start was buoyed by an 11-0
run that broke up a 6-all tie. Adding to the issues was the quick exit from
sophomore guard Sindarius Thornwell, who played just the first six minutes
before leaving with foul trouble.
Needing a way to get back into contention, Carolina would turn to its
nationally ranked defense to slow down Florida. After a layup from Marcus
Stroman broke up the run, the Gamecocks held the visitors without a point
for more than four minutes while embarking on an 11-0 run of their own to
tie it back up at 17 with 9:33 to play. The rest of the half would be closely
contested, with the final four minutes played as a one-possession game.
With Florida’s defense locking down Duane Notice and Thornwell on the
bench, Tyrone Johnson picked up the scoring slack with an electrifying half.
He led all scorers with 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting that included a pair of
three-point plays off tough layups. With the game tied at 31 and under a
minute to play before halftime, Notice would hit on his first field goal of the
game for Carolina’s first lead of the game, 34-31 at the break.
The strong end to the half would not carry over into the final 20 minutes
for the Gamecock offense. After a jumper from Laimonas Chatkevicius with
18:34 to play, Carolina would make just one field goal in 11 attempts for
the next nine minutes to see its 38-32 lead turn into a 51-46 deficit. Free
throws would be the team’s primary weapon in that stretch and for the half
in general, as it would make 16-of-17 in the second half alone and 23-of-27
for the game.
Despite the struggles from the field, Carolina would still lead through the
first eight minutes of the half. Florida’s Michael Frazier would tie the game
at 44 with 11:37 to go, but the game would turn after a flagrant foul was
called on Chatkevicius. The call led to a pair of free throws to give Florida a
lead it would never give back. It scored the next seven points and kept the
Gamecocks at a two-possession deficit until the waning seconds of the game.
It would not be until the final 30 seconds that Carolina’s offense was able
to find paydirt consistently, with a pair of 3s from Mindaugas Kacinas and
a layup by Johnson. Despite not making a field goal for the final 3:19 of the
game, Florida countered with a clutch performance from the free throw line
to squash any comeback attempts, making eight straight to give the home
side no chance at the tie.
Aside from the three straight made field goals in the last minute of regulation, Carolina would make just 5-of-21 attempts in the final half. The
missed shots were exacerbated by a strong rebounding effort from Florida,
who allowed just 23 to the Gamecocks for the game.

A pair of drives to the bucket for Johnson opened the second
half and Carolina would tie the game at 33-all to force a quick
timeout. The Rebels would counter with a full-court press
that effectively limited the Carolina comeback attempt. After
missing most of the first half to foul trouble, Ole Miss’ Stefan
Moody erupted for all 16 of his points in the second half as
the Rebels pulled away in the middle portion of the final 20
minutes.
The Gamecocks would miss on all 10 of their 3-point attempts
in the second half and made just 18-of-49 overall from the field
in the game. After tying the game up at 33, it would be three
minutes before another field goal would fall to allow a 10-3
run. The final straw would be the cold streak to end the game.
After a layup from Thornwell with 4:56 to play to make it a
nine-point game, Carolina would go 0-5 from the floor with
three turnovers to see Ole Miss end the game on an 8-1 run.

Game #16 - auburn 71, south carolina 68
Jan. 17, 2015/auburn arena/auburn, ala.
COLUMBIA, S.C. - It would take all 40 minutes to decide, but the Gamecocks
would earn their first SEC win of the season Tuesday night, beating Alabama
68-66. A shooting slump to start and end the game would be overcome to move
Carolina to 10-5 overall and 1-2 in the SEC, while the Crimson Tide (12-4,
2-1) lost for just the first time in the conference season and saw a five-game win
streak come to an end.
The Crimson Tide started the game on a 9-0 run as Carolina would miss on its
first six field goal attempts. The offensive troubles were only made worse after
leading scorer Duane Notice exited with his second foul of the half with 15:21
still to play. Rather than fold, though, the Gamecocks would rally back and
went on a 12-2 run over the next 5:34 to turn the deficit into a 12-11 advantage.
The scoring was balanced throughout the half, as eight different players scored
at least two points, and it wasn’t until a Mindaugas Kacinas layup with 6:12 to
go that a Gamecock player had more than one field goal made.
A corner 3-pointer from Michael Carrera keyed a separation late in the half,
as it gave the team its first two-possession lead of the night at 21-17. It was
the beginning of a 10-2 run that led to the biggest lead of the half, 28-19.
After 16 minutes of tough defense on both ends, the final stretch would be
highlighted by offense. The Gamecocks hit five of its last six attempts before
the final horn, and Alabama made three straight that included an end-to-end
layup before the horn.
The Gamecocks took a 30-25 lead into the break, led by six points from
Laimonas Chatkevicius and five apiece from Carrera and Kacinas. That trio also
keyed a renewed effort on the glass for Carolina. After two straight games being
outrebounded, the Gamecocks held an 18-10 lead after 20 minutes.
The return of Notice in the second half would be felt immediately, as the
sophomore scored the game’s first six points to put Carolina ahead by double
figures. The pace amped up as both sides tried to avoid effective half-court defenses, and the Gamecocks would take advantage. They would make more field
goals than Alabama even attempted through the first nine minutes of the half.
Alabama’s Ricky Tarrant made sure the Tide would not fall out of the game,
scoring six points on his own over a 40-second stretch to cut Carolina’s lead
to 50-43 with 10:43 to play. While the Tide did not get as many attempts as
the home side, it would be efficient, making 8-of-15 overall through the first
13 minutes.
The Tide would chip into what was a 13-point lead for the Gamecocks, and
after a pair of free throws they would trail just 54-49. A pair of tough baskets
would slow the rally down, with Tyrone Johnson and Demetrius Henry each
getting fouled on made baskets in the paint.
A shooting slump would come at an inopportune time for Carolina, but a
solid night at the free throw line would carry them. It would come up empty
on eight straight attempts from the 6:31 mark until the final buzzer, but six
makes from the charity stripe would make up the difference and led 68-66 with
30 seconds to play.
Up a basket with the ball, the Gamecocks would miss and leave the Tide 25
second to come up with the potential game-tying basket. They would instead
hold for the win, attempting a 3-pointer at the buzzer that caught the back
of the iron.
game #15
aUBURn, ala. - The Gamecock’s offense would return in a big way Saturday night at Auburn, but the Tigers would hold off a late rally to win
71-68. Despite hitting 58 percent of its shots in the second half, Carolina
(10-6, 1-3 SEC) would be trumped at the foul line, with the home side
converting on 18 more than their counterparts.
Carolina enjoyed the early lead from the tip, maintaining that advantage for the first 11 minutes of the game. The Tigers (10-7, 2-2) would
pull even with eight minutes to go, tying the game at 19 and outscored
the Gamecocks 20-10 in the home stretch to take a 39-29 lead into halftime. The major factor would be turnovers, as Auburn turned 10 South
Carolina turnovers into 15 points in the first half alone.
A clean start to the second half would help Carolina open on a 7-0 run
in the first three minutes of play, capitalized by a dunk from Laimonas
Chatkevicius to force a timeout. The Gamecocks would finally claw its
way back to even with 12 minutes to play after a jumper from Chatkevicius knotted it up at 45.
Trailing 53-49 with eight minutes left, the Gamecocks would make
their best effort to earn the road victory. The home team would go scoreless over a three-minute stretch, allowing the Garnet and Black to key a
9-0 run and a 58-53 lead. The scoring drought would be broken in a big
way, though, as KT Harrell’s four-point play would ignite the crowd and
his teammates. Auburn would respond with a 10-0 rally that included six
points from Harrell and four from Cinmeon Bowers.
It would be a layup from Bowers at the 3:42 mark that would serve as
Auburn’s final field goal made, but it was able to earn enough trips to
the charity stripe to keep Carolina’s final comeback attempt well enough
at bay. The Tigers made 10-of-12 free throws during its slump from the
field, with the only two misses coming in a five-point game and 21 seconds to play.
For as good as its counterparts were in foul shooting, South Carolina
would have an off night, making just 8-of-15 overall. Five of those caroms would come in the final four minutes of the game.
After the run to reclaim the lead, Auburn was able to maintain a twopossession lead for the final three minutes of regulation. The closest
Carolina would come would be three points after Tyrone Johnson hit a
3-pointer at the buzzer.
The Gamecocks would hit 14-of-24 shots from the floor in the final
20 minutes, and was able to snap a recent cold stretch from 3, making
8-of-18. Auburn would make just six field goals in the second half and
shot 36 percent from the floor in the game.

COLUmBia, S.C. - Despite coming across a hot-shooting Tennessee team that
would convert on nearly 60 percent of its attempts, the South Carolina men’s basketball team (10-7, 1-4 SEC) found itself down by just two points late in the
game Tuesday night. It’s rally back from a 17-point deficit would come up short,
though, as the Volunteers (12-5, 4-1) won 66-62. Sindarius Thornwell led the
team with 17 points.
The Volunteers broke the game open early after a hot stretch from the floor. With
the game tied 6-6 five minutes in, Tennessee would hit on 3-of-4 attempts from 3,
turning it into a 18-10 advantage just four minutes later. Michael Carrera would
snap Carolina’s three-minute scoreless streak, and an unlikely source would keep
the visitors from pulling away.
On the Gamecocks’ very next possession, Marcus Stroman found himself open
from deep and sank just the second 3-pointer of his college career to make it a 2015 game. Three turnovers forced in just over a minute of play would help Carolina
inch even closer, trailing 22-19 with seven minutes left to play.
The Vols would hit a scoreless streak of their own late in the half, going over four
minutes without a point. It would be turnovers at the root of the drought, as Tennessee committed five in that stretch to allow Carolina to tie the game back up at
22 with 4:14 to play. The Gamecocks weren’t able to capitalize fully, shooting just
3-of-9 during that same stretch.
A pair of baskets on consecutive possessions would push the Tennessee lead back
to multiple possessions, 27-22, and it would carry a 31-26 lead into the halftime
break. Despite allowing the Volunteers to hit half of their first-half attempts (11of-22), strong offensive rebounding and nine turnovers forced would give Carolina
nine extra shots from the floor in the opening 20 minutes.
While four of Tennessee’s made field goals came from 3, Carolina countered with
22 points in the paint and seven offensive rebounds. Stroman and Sindarius Thornwell paced the offense with five points apiece, but the team’s three leading scorers
entering Tuesday night (Thornwell, Duane Notice and Tyrone Johnson) combined
to hit just 5-of-20 shots in the half.
A blistering start to the second half would extend the visitor’s lead, as Tennessee
made 8-of-11 shots overall and all five 3-pointers in the first 11 minutes of the
final frame. The streak saw the Volunteers’ lead grow as large as 17, 56-39, with
just under nine minutes to play.
The Gamecock offense would not help its case early on, but used a quick run
with under four minutes to play to wake up the crowd at Colonial Life Arena.
Trailing 62-47, a basket from Demetrius Henry and back-to-back 3s from Justin
McKie and Thornwell would cut the lead to single digits. The seven-point deficit
was the closest Carolina had been in over 14 minutes, but it would be the impetus
for its final rally.
Tennessee continued to hit from the field to great effect, but it would not be as
successful at the free throw line, and the Gamecocks would use that as the focal
point of its rally. The Volunteers went without a field goal attempt for the final two
minutes and made just one basket in the run of play over the final 4:21.
Over that same span, Carolina would close with a 15-4 run, but its inability to
convert offensively would come back to haunt it one last time. Though it would
hit all five free throws in the final 90 seconds and saw Tennessee make just two of
its seven chances at the line in the same span, the Gamecocks went 1-of-8 from the
field down the stretch and fell just short of the miraculous comeback.
The Gamecocks would get within two, 64-62, with 32 seconds left after a tip-in
from Michael Carrera. The Volunteers countered with a pair of free throws to make
it a two-possession game and put the rally out of reach.

Game #18 - no. 1 kentucky 58, south carolina 43
jan. 24, 2015/colonial life arena
COLUmBia, S.C. - In a meeting of top-ten defenses, it would be No. 1
Kentucky (19-0, 6-0 SEC) that would win the day Saturday afternoon,
beating South Carolina (10-8, 1-5) 58-43 in front of a capacity crowd at
Colonial Life Arena. The Gamecocks held their opponent to its lowest
scoring output of the season, but a season-low shooting percentage on
the offensive end would be the difference in the loss.
It was a track meet early on, with both sides pushing the pace on every
possession. The Gamecocks would score the opening basket and held an
8-6 lead before Kentucky would use a 7-0 to go ahead 13-8 with 13:46
to go. It would hold the two-possession lead until back-to-back baskets
from Mindaugas Kacinas and Demetrius Henry would pull the home
side within one, 18-17.
A quick five-points from the `Cats pushed the lead back up to six, but
Carolina would answer with a 7-0 run to give it its first lead in over
11 minutes. Two baskets in the paint from Laimonas Chatkevicius and
Marcus Stroman started it, and a 3-pointer from Sindarius Thornwell
would put an emphatic cap on it. It would be the team’s first attempt
from deep all game, and his make would put the Gamecocks up 24-23.
The lead would not last long, as Kentucky finished the final 4:31 of the
half with a 11-0 run to take a 34-24 lead into the halftime break. Carolina committed three turnovers and missed on six field goal attempts
during the scoring drought.
The Gamecocks would make just 8-of-30 shots from the field in the
opening 20 minutes (27 percent), but were lifted offensively by seven
free throws. Kentucky’s great advantage would come in transition, as it
turned seven home turnovers into 12 points.
As the second half got underway, the nation’s top defense flexed its
muscles, as Kentucky limited South Carolina to just four field goals in
the final 20 minutes. Carolina would go six minutes between baskets
from Michael Carrera (12:27), Justin McKie (6:11) and Thornwell’s
make with 16 seconds left to play in regulation.
Despite the misses, Kentucky would only outscore the Gamecocks 2419 over the final 20 minutes and made just six field goals as a team in
the half. That would come thanks in part to a strong day on the glass
for the home team.
Led by nine rebounds for Carrera, Carolina outrebounded Kentucky
40-28 with 18 offensive rebounds. It was the first time since Dec. 13
(seven games) that the Wildcats were outrebounded, and the team entered Saturday’s game with a rebound margin of +9.4.
Thornwell’s 14 points would lead the team, and every Gamecock in the
nine-man rotation scored at least two points.

game #19 - lsu 64, south carolina 58
jan. 28, 2015/maravich center/baton rouge, la.
BatOn ROUGe, La. - The Carolina men’s basketball team’s recent
offensive struggles continued on the road Wednesday night, as a
strong interior defense from LSU would be the difference in a 64-58
loss. It is the third straight road loss for the Gamecocks, and drops its
overall record to 10-9 and 1-6 in the SEC while the Tigers move to
16-4 and 5-2 in the conference.
The first half was competitive throughout despite a lengthy scoring drought from Carolina. Sindarius Thornwell scored seven of the
team’s first nine points in the game. The teams traded baskets at a
healthy clip through the first seven minutes, but slowed towards the
midway point of the half.
Marcus Stroman gave the Gamecocks a 15-13 lead with 13:52 to
play, but the team would go the next six minutes without a point.
The Tigers would not take full advantage, scoring just seven points
themselves in the same stretch thanks to Carolina’s effort on defense
and on the glass. Michael Carrera would sink a free throw to snap the
streak, and after missing his second try an offensive rebound would
find Tyrone Johnson. The senior spotted up from 3 and sank his first
of the game.
The Gamecocks would make 5-of-11 shots after the cold streak to
close out the half, while holding LSU to just one make on nine attempts in the final six minutes to trail by just 29-28 at the break.
Duane Notice would take over the scoring duties from Thornwell and
led the team with nine points in the half.
The first five points out of halftime would be scored by Carolina,
including a three from Michael Carrera. Owning a 43-39 lead with
13 minutes to play, the Gamecocks would fall victim to a 7-0 run
by LSU and gave up the lead. It would counter with three straight
baskets in the paint for Mindaugas Kacinas to retake the lead with
eight minutes to play.
The Tigers would take a brief 52-51 lead, but a layup and another 3
from Carrera gave the Gamecocks the four-point lead. Bolstered by
a tough interior defense, LSU would mount one final run to close
out the game.
The hosts went on a 12-2 run over the final 2:45 to earn the win,
and blocked four shots in the final 30 seconds to keep the Gamecocks
from taking the road win, including two that would have either tied
the game or put Carolina ahead. LSU made each of its final three
field goal attempts in the game, and converted 5-of-6 free throws in
the final 20 seconds.
