COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Devan Downey scored 18 points and South Carolina used a late 24-6 run to beat Richmond 76-58 on Wednesday night.

The Spiders (7-3) tied the game at 52 on Dan Geriot's basket with 8:16 remaining. That's when the Gamecocks (7-2) took control.

Downey had two 3-pointers and Ramon Galloway added five points during the surge as South Carolina won for the third time in its past four games.

Richmond of the Atlantic 10 Conference had come in with victories over Mississippi State and Missouri this season and held a 32-24 halftime lead at the Colonial Life Arena.
