Gamecocks runaway from Razorbacks

Behind 20 points and six rebounds off the bench from junior guard Brian Richardson, South Carolina defeated Arkansas 75-54 at Colonial Life Arena for its first home conference win of the season. The 21-point margin of victory is the largest in conference play since an 18-point win over Kentucky on Feb. 25, 2009. Richardson’s 20 points matched a career high he set against Mississippi State earlier this year. With the win, the Gamecocks improve to 12-7 overall and 12-5 in the SEC.
