South Carolina cruises past Jacksonville 91-74

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Michael Carrera scored 17 points and Brian Richardson added a season-high 16 as South Carolina snapped a 2-game losing streak with a 91-74 victory over Jacksonville Friday night.

The Gamecocks led 57-30 at halftime behind 13 points apiece for Richardson and Carrera. South Carolina (6-3) shot 71.9% (23 of 32) from the field and made 6 of 7 3-pointers for its highest scoring half in 69 games.

Marcellous Bell led Jacksonville (4-6) with 17 points, with Jarvis Haywood adding 13 and Keith McDougald 12.
