SC get off to a hot start, going on a 7-0 run in the game's opening minutes.

Georgia senior forward Yante Maten tied the game on an inside score with 3:35 to go, but Gamecocks guard Frank Booker drained a 3-pointer from the left corner put SC ahead with 3:12 to go. Frank Booker hit two huge 3-pointers in the final 3:15 to allow Carolina the necessary breathing room.

Georgia (11-5, 2-3 SEC), which had been 8-0 at home this season before losing on Saturday, was led by Maten, who had 25 points, eight rebounds and four blocks.

South Carolina's 64-57 win over Georgia on Saturday came in wire-to-wire fashion.

The Gamecocks did not have a top 50 RPI win before Saturday. Entering the game, Georgia was at No. 41.

SC was No. 69 and this loss could be costly come March.

SC only had seven turnovers in the game, compared with 14 for Georgia. While the Gamecocks had success on offense in the first half, the Bulldogs struggled with fouls, committing seven before the 10-minute mark in the first half.

The Gamecocks (11-6, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) won despite shooting 27.1 percent from the floor. Chris Silva scored 14 points and had nine boards.

Silva gathered a missed 3-pointer and fed guard Hassani Gravett for a 3-pointer with 34 seconds left in the first half for a 37-29 advantage.

Booker: The South Carolina guard didn't see much playing time until late in the first half, but he made up for the time that he wasn't on the court when he was in.

Freshman small forward Rayshaun Hammonds was held scoreless in 36 minutes.

Georgia fought back again and tied it at 49, but a 3-pointer from SC guard Frank Booker on the very next possession re-established the Gamecocks' lead.

Georgia, down eight at halftime, tied USC three times in the second half, but never pulled ahead.

Georgia started the second half with a 10-2 run, tying the score 39-39 with 14:19 to go on a three-point play by Juwan Parker.
