Gamecocks Beat Alabama 56-54 for First SEC Win
It's felt like forever but the Gamecocks finally have an SEC win.
Bruce Ellington scored the game-winner with 1.0 seconds left on the clock as South Carolina beats Alabama on Wednesday night by a score of 56-54.
This was a defensive battle all the way as both teams are known for their top-notch defense. Alabama held a 29-27 lead but South Carolina fought back and was able to break through the final tie to emerge victorious and come away with their first SEC win.
Malik Cooke fought hard for a game-high 18 points and USC got double-digit scoring efforts from Ellington and Damontre Harris who both had 12 points a piece.
USC shot 32.4% from the field and 16.1% from the three-point line but it was enough to get past the Alabama Crimson Tide.
South Carolina will travel to Ole Miss this weekend to take on the Ole Miss Rebels in hopes of capturing their second SEC win and getting their overall record to 10-10.
A much needed win for the Gamecocks and it should calm the fan base...for now.
