Carolina raced to an early lead and went on to a 41-26 lead at halftime. In the second half, the Carolina defense allowed the second fewest points ever by an opponent in the second half as the Ducks could only score 14 second half points. The point total was the lowest second half point total since Georgia Southern scored 14 against the Gamecocks on February 3rd, 1992.
The Gamecocks once again continued to hold an advantage on the boards. Carolina posted a 40-28 edge on rebounds. USC brought down 18 of their 40 boards on the offensive end.
South Carolina will return to action on Saturday at 3pm as they face Boston College in the Paradise Jam finale.
