COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Ty Johnson and Brenton Williams each scored 18 points to lead a balanced South Carolina attack in a 92-65 victory over Marshall on Monday night.

The Gamecocks (6-6) won their third straight and fourth of the past five after opening the season 2-5. Marshall (5-8) lost for the sixth time in the last seven games.

South Carolina held a five-point halftime lead but used a 14-1 run to take control early in the second half. Duane Notice ignited the run with a 3-pointer and he scored seven points and had two assists to give South Carolina a 61-41 lead with a little over 12 minutes remaining. The lead would not be less than 17 points the rest of the way.

Notice scored 13 points and Demetrius Henry added 12 for the Gamecocks. Shawn Smith led Marshall with a career-high 19 points and Ryan Taylor added 18.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
