Gamecocks Make It Three In A Row

Dave Odom's Gamecocks are showing signs of life. Albeit the competition has only been gradually improving, but confidence is growing in the process. And it appears that the return of Chris Warren may have something to do with this team finally coming together ...

Chris Warren knocked down a career high 23 points, including six second-half threes while leading the Gamecocks of USC (10-11, 3-7 SEC) over the Arkansas Razorbacks (7-14, 2-8 SEC) to victory today in the Carolina Center.

Tony Kitchings, who dominated inside on South Carolina's behalf during most of the first period, was all but silent in the second half until the final two minutes when he drove the baseline and was fouled in the act of scoring on sweet move put up. He proceeded to hit his free-throw and complete the trey while finishing with 15 points, 11 of which came in the first half.

The Gamecocks led for all but 1:57 seconds of the game. It was the third win in a row for USC and puts them one game short of .500 with the Tennessee Volunteers (15-6, 7-3 Southeastern Conference) coming to town 7:30 PM Wednesday at the Carolina Center. The Volunteers defeated the #4 Florida Gators earlier in the day while extending their own personal win streak to six games.

With the loss today to The Gamecocks, Arkansas has yet to win a conference game on the road this year.
