USC lost a heartbreaker to Arkansas Saturday in Columbia 65-63. The Gamecocks had a chance to get off a winning shot in the final seconds, but a contested three by Josh Gray was off the mark. It’s the second time in three games USC has lost close in this current seven game losing streak. Last Saturday they fell in overtime at Georgia.
Gamecock freshman forward and leading scorer GG Jackson was held to nine points Saturday. He had only eight shot attempts and made three, two of them from three. Coach Lamont Paris said after the game the final shot was to go to Jackson, but it ended up in Gray’s hands.
Jackson was not one of the players brought in for postgame interviews, but today’s athletes don’t need formal press conferences to express their feelings to the world when theirs Instagram and Twitter.
After the game, from the USC locker room, Jackson did an Instagram Live session in which he complained about not getting the last shot and answered questions from viewers. A Twitter user @LIKE34AND8 captured the video.
