Gamecocks Use Last Second Magic to Beat Charleston

COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - Devan Downeys three-point play with two seconds left in the game capped a rally from 15 points down as South Carolina defeated the College of Charleston 85-82 Saturday.

Zam Fredrick II hit five 3-pointers to spark a 21-6 run by the Gamecocks (6-5), who went up 82-77 on Fredricks final trey with 2:27 left.

But the Cougars (4-6) tied it when Tony White Jr. canned a 3-pointer and was fouled. White missed the free throw, but moments later hit a layup to knot it at 82-82 with 44.5 seconds left.

With time running out, Downey drove the left side of the lane and hit a short jumper and was fouled. Downey made the free throw as the Gamecocks ran their record to 27-1 over the Cougars, who couldn't get a final shot off before the buzzer.
