South Carolina Gamecocks
South Carolina warmed up for its tilt at Kentucky on Tuesday with a win at Georgia over the weekend. The Gamecocks’ third road win in conference is already more than they had all of last season.
The team shot 56.9 percent, which was the highest such mark since November of 2016, when the ‘Cocks shot 58.7 percent against Holy Cross. That field goal percentage was boosted by a 68.8 mark from three (11 for 16).
South Carolina is 6–2 in the conference, behind only Tennessee, Kentucky and LSU. A road win on Tuesday would both be a shock and throw USC right into the mix, at least to come in second. No one is in the mix until Tennessee blinks.
Kentucky was down most of the afternoon in Florida, though never by much. The lead did extend to eight on a few different occasions, for the last time midway through the second half.
Then UK just went off, coming back in the matter of two minutes and sprinting to the finish in a 65–54 road win. It was the Wildcats’ fourth road win on their current eight-game winning streak.
Tyler Herro needed just eight field goal attempts to lead all scorers with 19 points. UK’s assist-to-turnover ratio wasn’t good (13 to 12) but it wasn’t as bad as Florida’s (7 to 9). Anyway, it’s something for Coach Cal to emphasize in Monday’s practice.
