Today's Date In Gamecock History
January 12th
1991 - The #21 Gamecocks improved to 11-3 on the season after knocking off Cincinnati 85-69. Carolina got out big early in this one and never looked back. One of the first half heroes was guard JoJo English, who scored 16 of his game high 29 in helping USC get out to a 23 point lead in the first twenty minutes. Carolina held a 20-13 lead when a dunk by center Jeff Roulston set off a 19-3 run over a six minute span that effectively buried the Bearcats. Roulston would finish with 17 points and eight rebounds while freshman Jamie Watson added 15 points as he hit six of seven shots. Coach George Felton credited an improved passing game - 'Today we looked for each other and it was four or five or six passes and that led to a lot of easy buckets.'
