Notice, South Carolina drop Auburn, 74-56, in SEC

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Freshman Duane Notice led South Carolina's hot 3-point shooting with a career-high 23 points and the Gamecocks beat Auburn 74-56 on Wednesday night in the opening game of the Southeastern Conference tournament.

South Carolina set a season high by making 11 of 15 3-pointers, including four by Notice. Brenton Williams had 16 points with four 3s.

South Carolina (13-19), the No. 13 seed, will play fifth-seeded Arkansas Thursday after winning its first SEC tournament game since 2008.

Chris Denson led Auburn (14-16) with 14 points. The Tigers closed the season by losing seven of 10 games, leading to speculation about the status of fourth-year coach Tony Barbee.

Denson, second in the SEC averaging 19.2 points per game, was held to two points in the first half, when he attempted only two shots.

Auburn, the No. 12 seed, swept two regular-season games with South Carolina as Denson averaged 23.5 points.
