SC knocks off No 10 Auburn

Auburn forward Anfernee Mc Lemore dunks against Georgia Saturday Jan. 20 2018 during the first half at the Auburn Arena in Auburn Ala Auburn looks to keep rolling against South Carolina

McLemore has officially been ruled out for the season and Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl said he will undergo surgery on Sunday.

McLemore averaged 7.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game, but his impact went beyond those numbers.

Mired in a six-game losing streak, the tenth-ranked Tigers seemed like the wrong opponent at the wrong time for the Gamecocks.

Auburn (23-3, 11-3) will return home for a rematch against Alabama on Wednesday.

Frank Booker scored 19 points, and SC built a 26-point lead before holding on to defeat No. 10 Auburn 84-75 on Saturday, ending the Gamecocks' six-game losing streak.

Auburn, now projected to be a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament by ESPN analyst Joe Lunardi, is experiencing what SC (13-13, 4-9) went through previous year when the Gamecocks reached the Final Four. "Anfernee's a 6-foot-7, shot-blocking 3-point shooter who plays center".




"We were giving up way too many offensive rebounds, that was the reason they got back in the game", Booker said.

SC ends a two-game homestand on Wednesday night against Georgia. "I was just thinking about him and his pain, everything he does for us. They had a lot of offensive rebounds".

The game was marred by continual whistles as it lasted two hours and 33 minutes and included 59 combined fouls and 76 combined trips to the free throw line. SC ran down the shot clock, and with one second left Silva muscled in a basket, drawing a foul. "Desean's a 6-foot-3 power forward who is as good a rebounder for his size as anyone who has played at Auburn since (Charles) Barkley".

Silva finished with 14 points, 11 rebounds, three steals, and two blocks. He was on the bench when Auburn made its comeback because Martin wanted him fresh down the stretch. "Wes and Hassani did the best they've done in a long time".

"I had to go out there and try to calm him down", Pearl said. Defensively, Auburn basketball yields 72.2 points per game against the opposing teams.
