Looks like somebody at the Rivals national desk was having a little sympathy for the Rebels and their injury plight last night.
Check out this box score. It shows nice minutes from both Trevor Gaskins and Eniel Polynice in last night’s 82-71 loss at South Carolina.
The official box score shows no such thing.
From the “What’s next” department, add Terrico White to the injury list after tweaking his knee last night. He played through some of the pain, but the injury no doubt limits his explosiveness, and the extent of the injury is presently unknown.
Zach Graham is playing through a tear of his patella tendon, just playing in games, not practicing.
I thought there was nice effort in the first half last night, but South Carolina was clearly quicker, and that paid off for the Gamecocks in the second half.
In the first half the Rebels were hitting some tough shots, not necessarily getting good looks, and they were unable to keep up that pace.
David Huertas finished with 27 points but was just 3-for-11 behind the arc. He missed some good looks in the first half and was unable to hit a 3-pointer when the game was still in question.
Next up is Kentucky Tuesday night.
