  5. Gamecocks Lose Late in SEC Quarterfinal With Gallery, Audio & Stats GCF Staff Report March 12. 2016 Georgia sinks a free throw with two seconds remaining to seal the win NASHVILLE, TENN. - The South Carolina men’s basketball team (24-8) dropped its SEC tournament quarterfinal meeting with Georgia (19-12) in heartbreaking fashion Friday night, losing 65-64 in the final seconds of regulation. Sindarius Thornwell led the team with 23 points. The early pace of play was very much in line with the recent history of the rivalry, with physical defense found on both ends of the floor. The Gamecocks took the lead from the jump, but both offenses suffered from turnover issues in the opening 10 minutes and scored just 15 points between them in that span. The offense picked up down the stretch, first from South Carolina. The Gamecocks made 6-of-8 field goals over a stretch of five minutes to extend their lead as high as 11, 29-18, with four minutes to play in the period. Sindarius Thornwell led the way with 13 first-half points, but it would again be a group effort for South Carolina in the absence of Michael Carrera. Seven players would score at least a point in the first half. (Read on with gallery, audio & stats)
