    COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Sam Muldrow scored a career-high 18 points and South Carolina made seven of its 10 3-pointers in the first half to defeat Georgia 79-68 Saturday night.

    The Gamecocks (17-5, 6-3 Southeastern Conference), who moved into second place in the SEC Eastern Division, are 5-0 at home in league play for the first time since the 1997-98 season.

    Georgia (9-14, 0-8) extended its losing streak to 10 games, its longest skid since 1972-73.

    The Bulldogs scored the first basket of the game, then the Gamecocks went on a 21-3 run. South Carolina led 41-25 at halftime and by as many as 23 in the second half.

    Muldrow, who missed the entire nonconference portion of the season, was 7-of-9 from the field for the Gamecocks. Mike Holmes and Zam Fredrick added 13 points apiece while Dominique Archie had 12.

    Terrance Woodbury paced the Bulldogs with 20 points.
