COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Ricardo Glenn tied a career high with 21 points and added 14 rebounds to lead SC-Upstate to a 74-68 victory over South Carolina Thursday at the Colonial Life Arena.

SC-Upstate (6-5) came in 0-8 all-time against opponents from the SEC. They came close to breaking that streak earlier this year when they held a nine-point second-half lead against Tennessee before falling 74-65.

But they withstood a late rally by South Carolina (2-5) this time.

Trailing 52-51 with 7:40 remaining, the Spartans used a 10-2 run to forge ahead. Glenn got things rolling with a lay-up, Ty Greene drained a jumper and added two free throws before Glenn and Torrey Craig had back-to-back rebound baskets to make it 61-54 with 4:49 remaining.

The Gamecocks got as close as a point on two Ty Johnson free throws with 1:21 remaining but could never regain the lead.
