COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – Carlos Powell scored 18 points to lead South Carolina to a 77-48 victory over Campbell on Saturday night.

The Gamecocks got off to its best start since 1988-89. Michael Boynton hit two 3-pointers to help fuel a 23-5 run over a nine-minute span in the first half. After a timeout, Boynton fed Kerbrell Brown for a layup and then converted a Campbell turnover into a 3-pointer of his own to start the run.

The Gamecocks (6-0) held Campbell scoreless for five minutes en route to grabbing a 39-23 lead on two free throws by Tre Kelley, who was starting for injured Josh Gonner.

Gonner suffered a sprained neck Tuesday night and didn’t dress against the Camels. The junior college transfer is expected to be back when South Carolina travels to The Citadel on Wednesday.

Campbell (0-3), which has now lost 19 straight road games, led 18-16 with 9:34 remaining in the first half. Campbell never got closer than 13 in the second half.

Tarence Kinsey scored 12 of his 14 points in the first half, while Brown added 12 and Kelley had 10.

Anthony Atkinson scored nine points to lead Campbell.
