Bruce Ellington scored a season-high 17 points in a 57-45 USC victory over Wofford Wednesday night at Colonia Life Arena. Ellington, who will fly down to Orlando Thursday to join the Gamecock football team, hit five of Carolina’s season high 11 three pointers. It is USC’s fourth win in the past five games. The lone loss was against second ranked Ohio State.
Freshman Damien Leonard came off the bench to score 14 points, 12 of which came on three pointers. 40 of the Gamecocks 57 points came from the bench.
The win evens USC’s record at 6-6. The team is back on the floor Saturday against USC Upstate. Ellington will not play in that game because of his obligation to the Capital One Bowl. He will be back for the January 3rd home game against S.C. State.
Wednesday night’s loss dropps Wofford to 7-6.
