COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Ricardo Glenn tied a career high with 21 points and added 14 rebounds to lead SC-Upstate to a 74-68 victory over South Carolina Thursday at the Colonial Life Arena.

SC-Upstate (6-5) came in 0-8 all-time against opponents from the SEC. They came close to breaking that streak earlier this year when they held a nine-point second-half lead against Tennessee before falling 74-65.

But they withstood a late rally by South Carolina (2-5) this time.

Trailing 52-51 with 7:40 remaining, the Spartans used a 10-2 run to forge ahead. Glenn got things rolling with a lay-up, Ty Greene drained a jumper and added two free throws before Glenn and Torrey Craig had back-to-back rebound baskets to make it 61-54 with 4:49 remaining.

The Gamecocks got as close as a point on two Ty Johnson free throws with 1:21 remaining but could never regain the lead.

    With offenses becoming increasingly explosive, plugging the holes is more imperative than ever. It's no surprise Alabama and Florida top the list, but the rest of the rankings may surprise you.
