Jadeveon Clowney recorded 4.5 sacks in the Gamecocks' 27-17 win over Clemson on Nov. 24, 2012. The sophomore from Rock Hill leads the nation in sacks (13, also a single-season school record) and tackles for loss (21.5) so far this season.






ROOSTER CROWS


Women's Basketball fought back from 14 points down at halftime to defeat Drexel 58-55 Wednesday night at Colonial Life Arena. After trailing for most of the game, Gamecock senior Sancheon White hit a 3-pointer from the right wing to tie the score with just over a minute left and force overtime. In the extra period, a bucket by Ashley Bruner gave South Carolina the go-ahead points, and Aleighsa Welch sealed her fourth double-double of the season with a free throw to give the Gamecocks a three-point victory. The Gamecocks are now 8-0 on the season, which is the program's best start since 2002-03.

The South Carolina equestrian team will head in to the mid-season break as the No. 1 team in the country. In the most split coaches poll of the season, the Gamecocks held on to the top spot over Auburn, as Carolina received six of eleven first-place votes, while the Tigers received four first-place votes in the final coaches poll of the fall semester. South Carolina is currently 4-2 overall and 3-0 in SEC play, as the Gamecocks are the only SEC school with a perfect conference record.

Men's golf freshman Matt NeSmith was recently named the Rolex Player of the Year at the Rolex Junior All-America Awards Banquet.

He won the Polo Junior Golf Classic last fall by winning the championship match 4 and 3, then claimed a four-shot victory in the Tournament of Champions in June. NeSmith has had a stellar start to his Gamecock career. He posted an average of 74.33 in four tournament appearances this fall and recorded three top-20 finishes.

Columbia Green and the Columbia Tree & Appearance Commission awarded South Carolina Athletics a Columbia Choice Award in the Renovation/Reuse category for its development of the Farmers Market site at Tuesday's Columbia Green annual meeting at Columbia Museum of Art. The site includes bio-retention cells to slow run-off, which was reduced by approximately 90 percent, and filter sediments and pollutants. All of which make 80 percent of the site permeable. Over 900 trees were planted, and the front of the site was designed as a flexible-use urban green space.

South Carolina women's basketball head coach Dawn Staley announced yesterday the signing of 6-foot-4 center Alaina Coates to a National Letter of Intent to attend the University and play for the Gamecocks. Coates will have four seasons of eligibility beginning with the 2013-14 season. Coates helped Dutch Fork to a Class 4A state title last season, contributing 11 rebounds and five blocks in the title game. A three-time South Carolina Basketball Coaches Association All-State selection, she is the 28th ranked player in the 2013 class, according to ESPN.

South Carolina sophomores Patricia Kranz and Cole Miller have been named the SEC Divers of the Week. Kranz received Female Diver of the Week honors after leading the Gamecock women's team to a 169-126 victory over College of Charleston last Friday.

She then placed first on the three-meter board with a career-best mark of 372.38, the second-best score in the conference. On the season, Kranz has six first-place finishes.

Miller finished first on the three-meter board and second on the one-meter board in a 178-115 win over College of Charleston to earn the Male Diver of the Week award.

Women's hoops used aggressive inside play and timely outside shooting to earn an 82-58 win at Louisiana Tech Monday night. Five Gamecocks finished the night in double figures, led by Ashley Bruner's 17, as South Carolina shot 48.3 percent from the field, including six 3-pointers, and won the rebound battle 43-26. Senior Ieasia Walker stuffed the stat sheet, including a career-best eight assists.

The University of South Carolina Athletics Department added a closed caption ribbon board at Williams-Brice Stadium that debuted at Saturday's football game against Arkansas. In the department's constant effort to improve the fan experience, the closed caption board was added to further incorporate the deaf and hard-of-hearing community into the stadium experience. "We take to heart what our fans invest in our programs when they come to our stadiums and truly believe it is our responsibility to provide them the best stadium experience possible," South Carolina Director of Athletics Ray Tanner said. "The new video board has added another facet to enjoying our football games, and we are so pleased that it has also allowed us the chance to include the closed caption ribbon board to expand the experience of our deaf and hard-of-hearing fans."

VIDEO OF THE DAY

In case you missed it at the game, the Gamecocks had  4th and 5 at the Arkansas 42-yard line. Connor Shaw finds Bruce Ellington who gets to the end zone for the score with just 1:30 remaining in the first half aiding in the Gamecock's eventual 38-20 win over Arkansas!

D.J. Swearinger was named the National Defensive Player of the Week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.
The 6-foot, 210-pounder from Greenwood, S.C. totaled a career-best 13 tackles (10 solo), including one for a loss, and added one interception which he returned 69 yards for a touchdown as the 12th-ranked Gamecocks defeated Arkansas, 38-20.

The South Carolina swimming and diving teams put forth one of their best efforts of season on Friday night as they swept College of Charleston in a dual meet. The Gamecock men defeated the Cougars, 178-115, while the Carolina women captured its first win of the season with a 169-126 victory.
Junior Narayan Naik led the way with three first-place finishes: the 100 backstroke (58.27), 200 backstroke (2:06.98) and 400 IM (4:37.84).



FAN PHOTO OF THE DAY

Today's fan photo was sent to us by Cathy Slenski, a teacher at Grace Covenant Presbyterian Kindergarten in Mauldin, SC. Cathy and her students had a special day celebrating Marcus Lattimore!

"
We have been in prayer for him, made him some HUGE cards with Gamecock Handprints.  My children actually feel as if they know him. I was at the USC-vs-TN game and when I came back to school on Monday they asked me if I was OK because my friend Marcus got hurt! How precious are 3 & 4 year old children? Sending our love and prayers for our Mentor Marcus!"

A Single-Game Family Four-Pack is available for all games and includes four general admission tickets, four drinks, four boxes of popcorn and four hot dogs for just $34.

Men's soccer goalkeeper Alex Long has been named AgSouth Athlete of the Week. Long played just one half against No. 25 Kentucky on Sunday, but the Gamecock netminder played a stellar 45 minutes in frame, posting a challenging four saves in the fifth Gamecock shutout of the season. Late in the contest Long was challenged with several shots, including some at point-blank range, that he was able to save. With just 11 minutes remaining in the match, Long posted a save on a strike from UK's Matt Lodge over the crossbar, and another from Lodge from point-blank range just six yards from goal. The anchor of the defense, Long and the Gamecocks played solid the remainder of the match to secure the win.

ROOSTER CROWS

South Carolina head basketball coach Frank Martin held a press conference Tuesday afternoon to preview Friday's first official day of practice. Martin had nothing but praise for senior guard LaShay Page, saying, "He's been great. He probably has been the most vocal as far as practice goes and workouts go to get guys to move away from a negative moment in practice, which is what leadership is about. It's about not dwelling and going onto the next play, going onto the next teaching moment. He's been the most vocal on our team doing that, which excites me."

A South Carolina win over LSU would stretch South Carolina's winning streak to 11 games, extending the longest in school history and keeping
in tact the longest current winning streak among FBS teams.

Gamecock fans created an awesome ESPN College GameDay atmosphere as the national college football show came to Columbia and saw the Gamecocks defeat the Dawgs, 35-7.







ROOSTER CROWS

Following a convincing 35-7 rout of No. 5 Georgia on Saturday night and coupled with losses to Florida State and LSU, the University of South Carolina football squad climbed three notches to No. 3 in both the Associated Press and USA Today/Coaches' polls. The No. 3 ranking is the highest for Carolina since they were 9-0 and ranked second in the nation during the 1984 season. The Gamecocks have extended their winning streak to a school record 10-consecutive games, the longest current streak among FBS teams.

Women's Soccer junior Gabrielle Gilbert scored her second goal of the season to lead the Gamecocks to their first SEC victory of the season in a 1-0 win against Georgia Sunday afternoon. Gilbert scored in the 21st minute with assists from Dani Henry and Danielle Au. Sophomore Sabrina D'Angelo registered five saves to record her second shutout of the season.

The South Carolina men's golf team carded a final-round 305 (+17) on Tuesday to finish in third place at the Rees Jones Invitational at Haig Point Club. Senior Dykes Harbin led the way for South Carolina as he recorded a final-round 77 (+5) to finish sixth, the best finish of his career and his second career top-10 showing. Freshman Matt NeSmith earned his first career top-10 finish as he tied for seventh place with a total of 223 (+7).

Gamecock Equestrian Freshman Sally Henry made an instant impact in her collegiate debut last week. Henry not only scored the Hunt Seat team's first point of the season with a five-point victory in Equitation Over Fences, she also earned the Gamecocks' first Most Outstanding Player award of the season. Henry's 88 was an event-high on Saturday, as she scored the first point of a 5-0 sweep for the Equitation Over Fences squad.

Did you know South Carolina leads the SEC in shortest distance between the stadium and Waffle House? Yum. A fan on Twitter pointed out we also probably have the shortest distance of any conference school to Bojangles. Double yum.

Ko Simpson was named to the Southeastern Conference 2012 Football Legends Class. As a two-year starter for South Carolina, he was named first team All-America in 2005 and was a consensus first team All-SEC selection after recording 103 tackles. In 2004, he earned second-team All-America honors and was a FWAA and Rivals.com Freshman All-American after his six interceptions led the SEC. Simpson garnered SEC Freshman of the Year honors by the Associated Press and was a second-team All-SEC selection by both the AP and Coaches. He was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft and played professionally for both Buffalo and Detroit. The class will be honored at the 2012 SEC Football "Weekend of Champions" Nov. 30-Dec. 1 in Atlanta, Ga.

South Carolina men's tennis kicks off the 2011-12 season this weekend with the Duke Fab Four Invitational. Sophomore Thiago Pinheiro will be among the three 16-player singles draws, which feature 14 nationally ranked players.

ROOSTER CROWS

Dylan Thompson has been named AgSouth Athlete of the Week. The redshirt sophomore made his first career start in place of the injured Connor Shaw and responded by completing 21-of-37 passes for 330 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in Carolina's win over East Carolina. The 330 yards passing was the most for a Carolina quarterback in his first start since Blake Mitchell threw for 330 to open the 2005 season. Thompson also was voted the ESPN Impact Performance of the Week winner for his efforts.

Heading into tonight's road match in Charlotte, Men's Soccer has won four straight games against the 49ers, including a 2-1 victory last season in a home contest vs. then-No. 21 Charlotte. Charlotte is currently ranked No. 5 in the country and the Gamecocks will look for another upset win after beating No. 2 USF in Tampa last week.




FAN PHOTO OF THE DAY

Today's fan photo was sent into us by Melodie Hinson. While at a 9-11 Tribute in Charlotte
yesterday, her husband and son were able to snag a picture with the country duo Big & Rich. Melodie said she was "beaming with pride" not only seeing her family so happy, but seeing that her husband was proudly representing the Gamecocks to the famous country stars!

Marcus Lattimore scored the Gamecocks first and only rushing touchdown against ECU on Saturday, tying the school record for career touchdowns with 33, matching former Gamecock greats George Rogers (1977-80) and Harold Green (1986-89). Quin Smith, T.J. Gurley and Jimmy Legree led the defensive effort with five tackles apiece. Legree also recorded his first career interception and returned it 34 yards for a touchdown. Seniors D.J. Swearinger and Shaq Wilson and sophomore Brison Williams also came up with one interception each.

The 11-0 start for the Gamecocks is the second-best in the program's NCAA-era history, behind only the 1983 team who began the season 12-0. The big win over the weekend was a sweep of Clemson on Friday night in front of the third largest crowd in the 16-year history of the Volleyball Competition Facility.
