COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Chris Silva scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Felipe Haase added 17 with nine boards, and South Carolina used a big second-half run to beat Wyoming 80-64 on Wednesday night.

Frank Booker scored 16 points with three 3-pointers, six rebounds and three steals. Freshman Justin Minaya added 11 points for the Gamecocks (6-2), who outrebounded the Cowboys 43-34 and scored 24 points off of 18 Wyoming turnovers.

Haase's 3 put South Carolina up for good, 25-22, and the Gamecocks finished the first half on a 13-3 run to lead 35-25 at halftime.

Wyoming closed to 37-33 on Justin James' free throw early in the second half, but the Gamecocks countered with a 21-6 run to regain control and led by double digits the rest of the way. Minaya hit consecutive threes in the run and Booker scored seven points.

James scored 20 points with 12 rebounds and Hayden Dalton added 12 points and six rebounds for Wyoming (6-3). Louis Adams scored 12 and Alexander Aka Gorski had 10.


South Carolina: The win was important for USC as Frank Martin felt his team had regressed in the last 10 days. The Gamecocks backcourt continued struggle, but with Booker and Minaya hitting outside shots, it played well enough to complement a solid performance by the frontcourt.

Wyoming: The Cowboys placed four players in double figures, but didn't have an answer for the USC frontcourt. They return home for a five-game run.


South Carolina: the Gamecocks will try to complete a sweep of its three-game home stint when it takes on Coastal Carolina, Saturday.

Wyoming: Wyoming will try to get back on track when it hosts Pacific in the first of a four-game home stand Saturday. The Cowboys have dropped three of their last five decisions.
