Stephen Garcia threw three touchdown passes and host South Carolina's defense slowed down Clemson star C.J. Spiller in a 34-17 victory over the 15th-ranked Tigers on Saturday. Spiller opened the game with an 88-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, an NCAA record-setting seventh of his career. But the Gamecocks (7-5) bottled up Spiller and Clemson's high-scoring offense after that to end the Tigers' six-game winning streak - and their dominance in the rivalry. Clemson (8-4) had won two straight, six of seven and 10 of 12 against the Gamecocks, who had only one victory over the Tigers in the past 10 games at Williams-Brice Stadium.

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Maryland baseball coach John Szefc has talked all week about playing with house money, about how his team is not under any pressure playing in its first NCAA tournament since 1971. He also pointed to the expectations facing regional host and top-seeded South Carolina, which had the nation's longest postseason home winning streak entering Saturday night's winner's-bracket game. You can say the Terps have handled things just fine so far. Second-seeded Maryland got a gutty performance from freshman starter Mike Shawaryn and enough early runs to claim a 4-3 victory over the Gamecocks and advance to the championship round tonight in the Columbia, S.C., regional.

South Carolina hired Lou Holtz to build a national program, one that would be visible and viable across the college football landscape, not just in the state or in the Southeast. Holtz brought with him a name synonymous with winning football and rebuilding down-and-out programs. In conjunction with his reputation on the field, Holtz brought the kind of instant name recognition very few coaches can boast. His star power has made the Gamecocks' 4-0 start one of the biggest sports stories in the nation.

Former Gilman first baseman Ryan Ripken will transfer from South Carolina to Indian River State College in Fort Pierce, Fla., his father Cal Ripken Jr. confirmed Thursday. “The last thing you want to do is make a big deal about it, but he decided not to go back to South Carolina,” Ripken said Thursday morning before the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation board's annual luncheon. “He's going to get some playing time in. … It's a baseball decision more than anything else.” Ryan Ripken, a 6-foot-6 left-handed first baseman, did not make South Carolina's 35-man roster this spring and redshirted to save a year of eligibility.

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Former South Carroll High gridiron standout Mike Landry decided to play college football at the University of South Carolina before even setting foot on the Columbia campus.In fact, you could say that even after deciding, he was up in the air.That's because he made his decision on board a southbound aircraft a few thousand feet over the state capital.Jets arriving at Columbia Metropolitan Airport circle over Williams-Brice Stadium, home of the Fighting Gamecocks, and from his seat Landry could look down on the 72,400-seat complex.

NEW YORK - The revival of the Maryland basketball team's season ended on Broadway last night as the Terrapins resorted to the sloppy and uninspired form that was their trademark in this disappointing season. Falling one game short of the opportunity to play for a National Invitation Tournament championship, Maryland was eliminated by South Carolina, 75-67, in the semifinals before 12,657 at Madison Square Garden. The Terps (19-13), who were outscored 34-18 in a nine-minute stretch spanning halftime, finished one win shy of reaching the 20-victory plateau for a ninth straight season.

Nobody wanted to leave. Unlike the last time Steve Spurrier coached in a Florida-South Carolina game when Gamecocks fans beat a path to the parking lots in the third quarter, the post-game tailgates could wait yesterday. The real party was inside Williams-Brice Stadium, where the Spurrier history-making tour rolled on. Four years after frustrating the Gamecocks' faithful in the infamous "Blackout" game, Spurrier turned the table on his alma mater in South Carolina's 30-22 win before a rocking crowd of 83,241.

Vanderbilt primed Dom Amore Hartford Courant For several years, Vanderbilt has had the reputation of being "the best team never to make the College World Series. " Those ghosts are gone now, after Vanderbilt swept Oregon State to reach Omaha for the first time. And now that they're there, the Commodores are primed to win. Vanderbilt was ranked No. 1 for long parts of the season, but, of course, the length of the season and the top-to-bottom quality of the SEC makes running the table impossible.

Michigan cornerback Troy Woolfolk underwent surgery on his dislocated ankle and will miss the season, according to a report on the school's Web site. Woolfolk will have a year of eligibility remaining and could be back for 2011. "He's got quite a bit of rehabilitation ahead, but they don't see any reason he can't be 100 percent this time next year," coach Rich Rodriguez said on the Web site. In Woolfolk's absence, Rodriguez said as many as five true freshmen could see playing time.

Steve Spurrier says he'll be back in the middle of South Carolina's play-calling and back on the Gamecocks' sidelines next season. Spurrier said Tuesday he'll increase his play-calling role down the stretch and won't let the potential of another frustrating finish - the Gamecocks (6-4, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) have lost two straight with No. 1 Florida and No. 23 Clemson left - lead him to leave. "Obviously, the president and the AD and all that decides on who coaches," Spurrier, 64, said.

With consecutive National Invitation Tournament championships, South Carolina coach Dave Odom and Hall of Famer Joe Lapchick now have something in common. And that's as far as Odom wanted to go with comparing his team to Lapchick's St. John's squads that won back-to-back titles in 1943 and 1944, when the NIT was even more prestigious than the NCAA tournament. "I don't know that our team rivals that, and I certainly don't rival him, but the accomplishment remains the same," Odom said. "We did win two back-to-back, and for that I am thankful and very, very proud."
