South Carolina Loses Heartbreaker

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Dee Davis hit two free throws with 22 seconds to go as Number 14 Vanderbilt made a late charge to beat South Carolina 67-66 in Southeastern Conference action Thursday night. The final points of the game gave the Commodores their only lead of the night.

The Gamecocks led 64-55 with four minutes to go. But South Carolina turned the ball over six times and made just two-of-six free throws in the team's final eleven possessions. The only shot from the field during that stretch was Lakesa Tolliver's miss with two seconds to go. South Carolina dominated much of the game, outrebounding Vanderbilt by 14 and holding the S-E-C's second-best shooting team to just 44 percent from the field.

However, the Gamecocks turned over the ball 27 times, compared with 18 for the Commodores. Stacy Booker scored 14 points and Tolliver had nine points and nine rebounds for South Carolina.
