S. Carolina defeats Ole Miss with last-second half-court heave in OT

A close battle between the South Carolina Gamecocks and Ole Miss Rebels ended in dramatic fashion Tuesday night.

With just two seconds left in overtime, South Carolina’s James Reese V broke a 74-74 tie by catching an inbound pass near half the pitch and drilling a desperate shot for the win.

South Carolina led by seven in the first half and Ole Miss led by eight in the second half. But the two teams were tied at the end of regulation time and were never more than two points apart in overtime.

Erik Stevenson led the Gamecocks with 17 points and six rebounds, while three Ole Miss players – Nysier Brooks, Matthew Murrell and Jarkel Joiner – all finished with 18 points.

South Carolina is eighth in the SEC at 6-7 in conference, while Ole Miss is second to last at 3-10.
