COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Sam Muldrow had 23 points, including the
go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:02 left, as South Carolina snapped a
five-game losing streak with a 79-73 victory over Mississippi on
Tuesday night.

Muldrow's points tied his career high and he added 10 rebounds
to help the Gamecocks (14-12, 5-8 Southeastern Conference) build a
69-55 lead with 6 minutes left.

That's when the Rebels (17-11, 5-8) went on an 18-4 run, tying
the game at 73 on Zach Graham's layup with 1:21 to go.

Muldrow answered back for South Carolina, striking for his third
3-pointer of the game.

Graham missed a tying 3-pointer on Ole Miss' next trip and the
Gamecocks closed out their first home victory since Jan. 19 with
three free throws.

Mississippi's Chris Warren had a career-high 33 points off eight
3-pointers, also the best showing of the senior's career.
