Akron vs South Carolina

South Carolina comes back to beat Akron 69-59


  •  

HONOLULU (AP) Duane Notice scored 15 points as South Carolina defeated Akron 69-59 in the third-place game of the Diamond Head Classic on Wednesday.

Sindarius Thornwell, Brenton Williams scored 12 points apiece and Michael Carrera, Tyrone Johnson each added 10 points off the bench for South Carolina (4-6). It was a season high for the freshman Notice.

Demetrius Treadwell scored 12 points and Quincy Diggs had 10 for Akron (6-4). The Zips held a 31-25 lead at the break, but were outscored 12-5 in the first 5 minutes after halftime.

The Gamecocks took over midway through the second half. Notice's basket started a 14-3 run as South Carolina rallied to take a 53-45 lead with 7:20 remaining.

A 3-pointer by Jake Kretzer and a three-point play by Treadwell helped Akron close to 59-56 with 4 minutes remaining. But Notice scored on the next play and then his steal and layup put the Gamecocks ahead 63-56 with 3:19 left. South Carolina then stole the ball on consecutive Akron possessions to seal the win.

Notice, who entered the tournament averaging just four points per game, had three-straight double-digit scoring performances in the tournament. He scored 11 in Sunday's win over Saint Mary's and had 13 in Monday's loss to Boise State. Both were his season highs at the time.

Notice was 7 of 12 from the field as the Gamecocks shot 41.7 percent for the game and made 81 percent of their 21 free throw attempts. South Carolina held the Zips to 22-of-58 shooting, including 5 of 17 from 3-point range.

The teams will face each other again on Saturday in South Carolina.
