South Carolina beats Western Kentucky 87-85, 2OT

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Ramon Galloway came off the bench and
had seven of his 22 points in the second overtime to give South
Carolina an 87-85 double-overtime victory over Western Kentucky on
Saturday night.
      The Gamecocks (4-1) were down by as many as 12 points in the
first half but came back in the second. A 3-pointer by Bruce
Ellington with 20.7 seconds left in regulation tied the game at 67
and forced the first overtime.
      In the second overtime, Sam Muldrow hauled down a rebound and
made a midrange jumper with 5 seconds left for South Carolina to
tie the game at 75 and force another overtime.
      After WKU (3-3) scored the first three points in the second
overtime, Galloway made two layups in transition to give the
Gamecocks the lead for good.
      The Hilltoppers had the ball with 4.4 seconds left but were not
able to get a shot off to force a third overtime.
