January 13th
1990 - South Carolina defeated Cincinnati 59-53 in a game that was more like a brawl that a well execute basketball game. There were 53 fouls called in the game and in the first half Carolina shot 26 percent from the field while the Bearcats shot 28. Cincinnati even dropped to 27 percent in the second half and finished at just 46 percent on free throws. The Gamecocks led 22-20 at the half but managed to shoot 63 percent in the second half to get the win. Carolina opened the final half with an 8-1 run and that was enough to hold a steady lead the rest of the way. Joe Rhett led the way with 15 points and 13 rebounds, the only USC player in double figures. The win left USC in a tie for first place in the Metro Conference and with a 6-4 record.
