Columbia, S.C. -

Post-Game Press Conference

Team Notes
• LSU was the 25th team to post double-digit turnovers this season when it turned the ball over 14 times. USC has had 25 of 27 games with 5+ steals this season.

• The Gamecocks extended their streak of hitting a three point basket to 195 straight and having at least one block in 112 consecutive.

• Six of Carolina's last seven games at home have been decided by 7 points or less including four that have been decided by 3 or less.

• Carolina hit all seven free throw attempts against the Tigers. It marked the second time this season that they hit 100% from the free throw line. (Vanderbilt, 1/9/08)

• The four turnovers by the Gamecocks were their lowest total this season and their lowest total since committing 4 against Mississippi State on March 9, 2006. The four are the least by the Gamecocks in a SEC Regular season contest. The previous low was 5, multiple times, with the last time coming against Auburn on Jan. 31, 2007.

Individual Notes
Dominique Archie tied Marius Petravicius' streak of 57 straight starts to begin a Gamecock career tonight (longest streak to start a career to date). Marius started 61 of the 62 games his first two years, not starting Game No. 26 his sophomore year vs. UT (but he did play 22 minutes in the game). To set the school record for career starts, he has a way to go. BJ McKie and Melvin Watson own that streak with 116 career starts each (not straight).

• Archie hit double figures for the 16th time this year and 31st time in his career. He scored the first seven points of the second half for USC (19:35 - 15:39).

Brandis Raley-Ross started in place of Zam Fredrick vs. LSU. It was Fredrick's first non-start in 39 games (26 at USC, dating back to the Ga. Tech game at Wake Forest in 2005-06). It was Raley-Ross' 22nd career start and his 10th start this season (first since UC-Irvine 12-28-07).

Sam Muldrow scored his first points since January 30, 2008 against Georgia.

Zam Fredrick scored in double figures for the 22nd time this season and the first time since scoring 15 at Georgia on Feb. 13, 2008. It was his 7th 20+ point game this season. His last 20+ point game was on Jan. 30, 2008 when he scored 23 against Georgia. Fredrick has 11 4+ assist games including 4 vs. LSU.

Mike Holmes has 12 6+ rebound games this season. He had a career-high 4 steals.

Devan Downey has 10 6+ assist games with a high of 11 vs. The Citadel (11-12-07). Downey scored only 6 points against the Tigers which is his lowest point total in a game this season. It marked the 2nd time this season that he did not score in double digits.

• LSU went 14-14 from the free throw line which tied for the best free throw percentage ever against Carolina and it tied for the 4th most attempts where a team recorded 100% from the line. The most free throws attempted against Carolina where the opponent was perfect came on March 20, 1971 by Fordham where they went 22-22. The last team that went perfect from the free throw line attempting at least 14 tries was Florida on Jan. 15, 1997 when the Gators went 17-17.
