Kentucky Snaps Gamecocks' Home Streak in 89-62 Win With Video, Stats & Gallery

Michael Carrera led Carolina with 25 points and 10 rebounds




COLUMBIA, S.C. — A sellout crowd made for an exciting atmosphere Saturday as the No. 20 South Carolina Gamecocks (21-4, 8-4 SEC) hosted No. 22/21 Kentucky (19-6, 9-3). The Wildcats built up a big lead late in the first half and rode it to an 89-62 win, snapping the Gamecocks' perfect record at home this season. Michael Carrera led the way for the home team with 25 points and 10 rebounds, but Carolina shot just 32 percent for the game.

The game had a peculiar start, after Kentucky head coach John Calipari was assessed two technical fouls after a South Carolina foul and was ejected. The Gamecocks made just one of the four free throws from the technical, but were able to take an early 8-7 lead after a deep 3 from Carrera. The Wildcats would respond with a 7-0 run over a 90-second span that led to a 16-10 advantage they would never relinquish.
