  2. South Carolina baseball surrenders three leads, drops series to Georgia March 16, 2019 After a quiet series opener, South Carolina baseball got some production from its bats against Georgia on Saturday. But the Gamecocks’ top starting pitcher struggled for the first time this year, as did the defense, and USC fell 8-7 to the Bulldogs, dropping the series. In a back-and-forth contest at Founders Park, Carolina (14-5, 0-2 SEC) took the lead three different times against UGA, only to surrender them all the next half-inning. The Gamecocks’ first four runs of the day came off home runs in the second and third innings from sophomore catcher Luke Berryhill, freshman DH Ian Jenkins and sophomore right fielder Andrew Eyster. The latter two were part of a four-run third that was capped by an RBI bloop double from senior third baseman Jacob Olson that scored Berryhill and gave USC a 5-1 advantage. Carolina junior starter Reid Morgan, however, encountered his first real trouble of the entire season, allowing three singles and a run to score in the third inning, then giving up four more in the fourth off four singles, a walk, a sacrifice fly and plenty of help from Carolina’s defense along the way — no one covered first base on a sacrifice bunt, allowing the batter to reach, and a fielder’s choice wound up loading the bases on a fielding error at second base. Carolina committed three errors on the day, tied for a season high. USC retook the lead once more in the bottom of the fourth inning on a sharp line drive RBI single from junior shortstop George Callil, but Georgia once again came right back in the top of the fifth, getting an infield single and RBI double off freshman reliever Daniel Lloyd. Lloyd was then replaced by senior reliever Gage Hinson, who gave up an RBI groundout in the fifth and three singles in the sixth to give Georgia an 8-6 lead. Olson gave the Gamecocks some life late, getting hit by a pitch in the eighth inning and then advancing from first to third on a wild pitch. He scored on a sacrifice fly from senior first baseman Chris Cullen.

SOUTH CAROLINA GAMECOCKS RECORD: (1-0)CONFERENCE RECORD: (0-0)NEXT OPPONENT: vs. Marshall GEORGIA BULLDOGS RECORD: (1-0)CONFERENCE RECORD: (0-0)NEXT OPPONENT: Middle Tennessee Gamecocks Key Player QB Jake Bentley Let’s call a spade a spade: Jake Bentley has struggled in big games. The junior signal caller is just 1-5 against Georgia, Clemson and Florida since becoming the Gamecocks starter in the middle of 2016. After an impressive opening game performance against Coastal, Bentley will look to translate that momentum into a solid performance against the Dawgs.Simply put, the Gamecocks don’t win without a great outing from Jake Bentley. Most quarterbacks have a “signature game” at some point in their careers. Will this be Bentley’s? Bulldogs Key Player RB D’Andre Swift Gone are two Georgia legends in departed running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. The Dawgs turn to a new face to lead their vaunted backfield in sophomore D’Andre Swift. Swift showed flashes a season ago, rushing for 631 yards and three touchdowns in limited playing time. Now it’s time to see if Swift is ready to be the focal point of the Georgia offense. While he has all the talent in the world, the bigger question is: can Swift replace the leadership that the top Chubb and Michel gave the Bulldogs a season ago? He’ll have his first chance to prove he can on Saturday. Game Preview and Analysis Key Matchup USC LB Bryson Allen-Williams vs. UGA QB Jake Fromm Allen-Williams returns to the Gamecocks defense after missing most of last season due to injury. The redshirt senior played as a true freshman in the Gamecocks’ last win over Georgia, a thrilling 38-35 victory in Columbia in 2014, and Will Muschamp has repeatedly mentioned how much Bryson Allen-Williams‘ presence meant to his defense. UGA signal caller Jake Fromm returns after an outstanding freshman season in which he led Georgia to the national championship game. While most expect the Dawgs to pound the run, don’t be surprised if Fromm and company come out looking to throw early against a new-look South Carolina secondary. Allen-Williams is the Gamecocks’ best pass rusher and will need to disrupt the timing of Fromm and the UGA offense. Prediction The matchup we talked about all offseason is finally here. Georgia comes into Williams-Brice Stadium looking to once again establish themselves as the cream of the crop in the SEC East. Meanwhile, South Carolina hopes to show to the nation that they are a real player under third-year head coach Will Muschamp. The Dawgs return a plethora of weapons on offense, including quarterback Jake Fromm. They also benefited from the transfer rule in the offseason, picking up Georgia native and Cal transfer Demetris Robertson in the process. Meanwhile, the Dawgs return five starters on defense, led by stand-out cornerback Deandre Baker. While the Bulldogs may have the more talented roster, the Gamecocks have enough playmakers to pull the upset in Columbia on Saturday afternoon. Jake Bentley will have his best game in garnet and black, Deebo Samuel will score multiple touchdowns, and the South Carolina defense will make a game winning stop, inevitably sending Williams-Brice into a frenzy. Georgia has never beaten a ranked Gamecocks team in Williams-Brice. That won’t change on Saturday. PREDICTION: South Carolina 28, Georgia 24

  5. WATCH POST-GAME: Will Muschamp on Georgia — 11/4/17 South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp met with reporters after the Gamecocks’ 24-10 loss to Georgia, the No. 1 team in the country, according to the College Football Playoff rankings. Here’s what the Gamecocks’ second-year head coach had to say: Opening: “Georgia’s got a really good football team. … I’m very proud of our team, the way we competed and fought in the game.” The differences in the game were their running backs and the lack of third-down stops by the Gamecocks defense. Muschamp complimented Jake Fromm for his accuracy. “That’s not what we want. We didn’t come here to play close.” Muschamp said the Gamecocks are a better team now, and they’ll continue to improve as the season progresses. “We’ve got to coach a little better and play a little better…” Taylor Stallworth is fine. The trainers “just told me he was not available,” Muschamp said. Muschamp isn’t certain if there’s one thing that was common on third down. That hurt the defense, in terms of fatigue. Injury-wise, Muschamp believes they’re fine, outside of the Stallworth injury, which was was undisclosed. The team is off Sunday and will get back to work Monday. South Carolina was setting up the dig-and-go during the play in which Jake Bentley threw the interception late in the first half. On the fade route over Jam Williams: Muschamp said it was a 50/50 ball. “You’ve got to get the elbow down.” The field-goal kicking game: “I have confidence. The guy missed one in pre-game. I don’t know that he missed one all week. … We’ve got to continue. We’ve still got a lot of ball to play.”

  11. Gamecocks Lose Late in SEC Quarterfinal With Audio, Gallery & Stats GCF Staff Report March 12. 2016 Georgia sinks a free throw with two seconds remaining to seal the win AUDIO: Frank Martin, Sindarius Thornwell, Laimonas Chatkevicius AUDIO: Mark Fox, Yante Maten, Kenny Gaines Final Stats | USATSI Gallery GAMECOCK STAT LEADERS Points: Sindarius Thornwell (23) Rebounds: Laimonas Chatkevicius (9) Assists: Marcus Stroman (3) Steals: Mindaugas Kacinas (3) Blocks: Chris Silva (3) 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. Georgia made a run to close out the opening period, taking advantage of a four-minute scoreless drought from the Gamecocks after taking the 29-18 lead. Six free throws in the closing minutes made up the bulk of what ended up as an 8-0 run to send the game into halftime with Carolina ahead 29-26. The opening 20 minutes were a defensive aficionado’s delight, with the two teams forcing 21 combined turnovers and shooting just 18-of-58 from the field. The Gamecocks picked off six steals in the half, but only converted Georgia’s 10 turnovers into six points. South Carolina came out of the locker room aiming to break its scoring slump and did just that, scoring the first five points of the second half to force Georgia to burn an early timeout. The offenses for both teams would look inwards, scoring the first – points of the second half on two-pointers. Georgia would not make its first 3 of the half until 10:43 remained, but it was an important one. JJ Frazier’s make pushed the Bulldogs up to a 9-0 run that cut South Carolina’s lead down to 45-43. The lead would extend out to 13-2 and Georgia tied the game up at 47-all before Thornwell sank a clutch 3 to put the team back up with nine minutes to play. His basket would help the Gamecocks hold the Bulldogs at an arm’s length over the next five minutes, but similar to how the game played out in the regular season finale, the Bulldogs would never go away and remained within three, 59-56, with four minutes left to play. Behind an 8-0 run over a two-minute span, the Bulldogs took their first lead of the night at 60-59 with three minutes remaining, but again it would be Thornwell who broke their spell with a layup to answer. The two would trade leads all the way down to the final two minutes, when a Duane Notice free throw tied it up at 62 with 1:54 to play. Two more free throws from Marcus Stroman gave Carolina the lead, but Georgia responded with a basket with 20 seconds to go. Carolina held for the last shot, but Thornwell was stripped with under 10 seconds to play and fouled Frazier. He would sink the first to clinch the win. GAMECHANGER The Gamecocks could run, but they weren’t able to hide Friday night. The Bulldogs erased double-digit leads from South Carolina on three different occasions – one to end the first half, and two in the second half. The final run, an 8-0 spurt, turned a 59-52 Gamecock lead into Georgia’s first lead of the night, 60-59, with three minutes to play. KEY STAT With nearly identical stats across the board between the two teams, the big difference would come at the free throw line. Georgia attempted 27 shots from the charity stripe, compared to 15 for the Gamecocks. Despite the Gamecocks entering the night ranked fifth nationally in free throw attempts, Georgia took as many free throws in the second half (15) as South Carolina had for all 40 minutes. UP NEXT The Gamecocks will await their postseason fate now, and My Carolina Alumni Association will host the team for an NCAA Tournament Championship Selection Show watch party on Sunday (March 13) evening at the USC Alumni Center in downtown Columbia. The NCAA Tournament bracket will be unveiled in a two-hour show on CBS, which begins at 5:30 p.m. ET. NOTABLE Laimonas Chatkevicius had a solid night for the team, finishing with 14 points and nine rebounds over 24 minutes of action. It was the most rebounds he has had in a game since Jan. 19 against Ole Miss. Georgia finished at 39 percent from the floor in the game, marking the 19th time this season South Carolina held the opposition to under 40 percent in a game. Sindarius Thornwell now has six 20-point games this season, tied for the team lead. Four have come in the last 10 games. The team was without senior Michael Carrera for the second-straight game. He remains day-to-day with a hip injury. From USC Sports Information

The Bulldogs (12-7, 5-4 SEC) held off numerous second-half rallies from the Gamecocks (19-3, 6-3) and had four players reach double figures in scoring. Sindarius Thornwell andMichael Carrera finished with double-doubles for Carolina. It was a slow start to the night for the visiting Gamecocks on the offensive end. The team started 0-of-5 from the field and sat at just 3-of-20 through the first 16 minutes of action. Thankfully for Carolina, the Bulldogs would not take full advantage and led just 23-16 when the Gamecocks broke a five-minute field goal drought with three straight makes to take it into the final three minutes of the half. A pair of baskets from Georgia’s Yante Maten pushed the lead up to double digits heading into halftime, 33-23. The Gamecocks shot just 6-of-28 (21.4 percent) in the first half.Sindarius Thornwell led the team with nine points and five rebounds,Michael Carrera pitched in eight points, four rebounds and three blocks. Georgia had a pair of scorers reach double figures in the period, with Maten and Kenny Gaines sharing the half’s scoring lead at 10 points apiece. Georgia’s lead grew to 13 after a 3-pointer from J.J. Frazier opened the second half, but the Gamecocks weathered the storm and cut it back to a two-possession game thanks to an 8-0 run. In the span of just three possessions, Duane Notice and Thornwell hit 3s and Carrera added a jumper to cut it to 39-34 with 15:55 still to go in the game. While the Gamecocks were able to pare down the big lead, it would be unable to string together enough stops to get over the hump. The team came all the way back to two, 50-48, with six minutes left, but Georgia responded with two quick baskets. Three minutes later, Frazier hit a 3-pointer to extend the lead back up to seven. He would provide the dagger in the waning minutes, taking a pass off an offensive rebound and hitting another 3 to push the Bulldog lead to 62-53, its largest margin since 17:11 in the period. After starting the second half hitting 9-of-16 field goals, the Gamecock offense cooled down at an inopportune time. The team made just one field goal in the final four minutes of the game, allowing Georgia to push back into a double-digit lead before the final horn. GAMECHANGER The Gamecocks were able to make it a one-possession game (three points or less) on four different occasions in the second half. On the possessions immediately following, Carolina was 0-of-3 from the field and had a turnover. Conversely, Georgia scored the very next time down the court three of those four times. KEY STAT The Gamecocks were outrebounded for just the fourth time this season, allowing Georgia to enjoy a 43-38 margin for the night. For the season, Carolina is 18-0 when it wins the rebounding battle but 1-3 when losing it. UP NEXT South Carolina continues its road swing at No. 8/8 Texas A&M on Saturday. The Aggies won last season’s meeting between the two schools, 62-52 in Columbia. Saturday’s contest is just the fifth all-time between the two schools and the third in College Station. Game time for the matchup is set for 4 p.m. ET on ESPNU. Mike Morgan (play-by- play) and Chris Spatola (analyst) will have the call. NOTABLE Carolina had two players with double-doubles for the first time since Jan. 16, 2013, at LSU (Michael Carrera and Lakeem Jackson). Carrera now has three straight games with a double-double, six for the season. Thornwell now has two this season, five for his career. Sindarius Thornwell matched his career high with 11 rebounds. He has reached mark three times in his career, with the last coming at Mississippi State on March 8, 2014. Carolina has lost six of the last seven meetings at Stegeman Coliseum, dating back to 2010. The team’s 31.6 percent success rate on field goals is tied for the lowest of the season. This is just the second time through 22 games that the team failed to reach 60 points From USC Sports Information

  16. 3 Keys to the Game: South Carolina vs Georgia 09/18/2015 Another disappointing season seems to be inevitable for this year’s South Carolina football team, which may struggle to even make a bowl game. With the second most difficult schedule in the nation, the margin for error is razor-thin for the Gamecocks. However, a loss to the Kentucky on Saturday — the first road SEC victory for the Wildcats since 2009 — put the Gamecocks in the precarious position of likely having to pull off an upset to avoid a losing season. The Gamecocks will have a prime opportunity to pull off an upset on Saturday. Head coach Steve Spurrier has traditionally given the Bulldogs fits. The Head Ball Coach is 16-6 against Georgia as a head coach and 5-5 at South Carolina. The Gamecocks have won four of the last five times the teams have met, including two wins in the last three years over Georgia teams ranked in the top 6. Georgia has indeed become wary of the Gamecocks, especially following a road loss at Williams-Brice Stadium last year. Georgia went on to go 6-2 in the conference, finishing second in the SEC East to 7-1 Missouri. Keys to the Game: 1. Address Nick Chubb — I intentionally chose the word address here. To stop or even slow the All-American tailback is a nearly impossible task for just about any defense. Ask Louisville. The Gamecocks need to meet the 5-foot-10, 220 pound Chubb head-on. Last year, Georgia ran for 217 yards against the Gamecocks, but the defense slowed the Bulldog rushing attack just enough to tip the game in South Carolina’s favor. Even with a much improved defensive front that allowed just 92 yards in the second half of Saturday’s Kentucky game, it is unrealistic to believe that the Gamecocks can force Georgia quarterback Greyson Lambert to throw 35 times. Instead, the Gamecocks can force the Bulldogs into longer third down situations if they play solid run defense on the early downs. If Georgia's running backs get more than 30 combined touches, the Bulldogs will win. The Gamecock focus needs to be on forcing Lambert to throw more than he, and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, would like. 2. Stay Balanced on Offense — With nine minutes left against Kentucky, senior tailback Brandon Wilds had 15 carries. He ended the game with 16. Redshirt junior Perry Orth threw 18 second-half passes in the first meaningful playing time of his career. He played well until his last throw, a game-sealing interception. The Gamecocks shouldn’t shy away from the pass in the early going. The tendency with a young quarterback is to throw away the first series with overly safe play selection. Orth has the ability and the confidence to stand tall in the pocket and throw downfield, even on his first possession. Orth’s first play of the second half was a 16-yard completion to junior Pharoh Cooper. That being said, Spurrier cannot forget his three-headed monster of Wilds, redshirt sophomore David Williams and redshirt senior Shon Carson in the backfield. The best way to stop a premiere running back like Chubb is to keep him off the field. If Spurrier can stay balanced with a healthy mix of runs and passes, the Gamecock offense can move the ball on a good Georgia defense. 3. Start Fast — Gamecocks have outscored their first two opponents 22-2 in the second half of their first two games, but have gone into halftime down by a combined 20 points. With the strength of Georgia’s run game, the Gamecocks cannot afford to be in a position where they must comeback to win. South Carolina scored quickly following a junior Skai Moore interception against Kentucky, but relaxed and faced a 14-7 deficit after one quarter. The Gamecocks need to stay aggressive in the first half and try to jump out to a lead instead of being content with a close game. Last season, the Gamecocks struggled late in games, blowing double-digit fourth quarter leads on three separate occasions. After a promising second half against Kentucky last week, South Carolina should look to grab the lead early against Georgia.
