A 46-point second half wasn't enough for the USC men's basketball team to rally against the Tennessee Volunteers on Thursday night. The Gamecocks wrapped up their home season honoring this year's seniors on the squad.
Senior forward Sam Muldrow dropped a career high 24 points at the Colonial Life Arena but that wasn't enough to counter Tennessee's Tobias Harris who also scored a career high with 25 points.
Muldrow also added 12 rebounds and five blocks and the Gamecocks trailed the Vols by just three with a little over a minute to play in the second half but a Melvin Goins jumper for Tennessee effectively ended Carolina's hopes for a victory.
The loss drops USC's record to 14-14 on the year.
The Gamecocks wrap up the regular season Saturday against Mississippi State. The game is scheduled to air on ESPN2 at 2 p.m.
