South Carolina hits 3s to beat Wofford 57-45

Bruce Ellington and Damien Leonard combined to make nine of South Carolina's season-high 11 3-pointers to lead the Gamecocks to a 57-45 victory over Wofford on Wednesday night.

Ellington scored a season-high 17 points in just his sixth game of the season and Leonard added 14 off the bench to pace South Carolina to its fourth victory in the last five games. The Gamecocks (6-6) lost five of their previous six before clawing back to .500 for the first time since the fourth game of the season.

Ellington was 5 for 6 from the 3-point line while Leonard was 4 of 6. South Carolina finished 11 of 20 from beyond the arc.

The Gamecocks received 40 points from their reserves while the Terriers (7-6) only had two bench points. Karl Cochran led Wofford with 12 points. Leading scorer Kevin Giltner added 10 but he was 4 of 14 from the field and 2 of 10 from the 3-point line.
