    COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Bruce Ellington scored 18 points and Sam Muldrow added 14 as South Carolina held off a furious second-half charge to defeat Wofford 64-53 on Saturday night.

    The Terriers pulled within four points late in the second half before Muldrow and Ellington took control for the Gamecocks (7-1).

    Wofford's Jamar Diggs was called for his second technical foul after a hard foul on Ellington, and South Carolina converted three of the four free throws to take a 52-45 lead with 5:08 remaining.

    Muldrow added a 3-pointer on the Gamecocks' next possession and followed that with a tip-in to give South Carolina a 57-50 advantage.

    Ellington's 3 with just over a minute remaining pushed the lead back to double digits to seal it.

    Cameron Rundles led Wofford (4-6) with 20 points. Muldrow added a season-high 14 rebounds and three blocks.
