Seton Hall scored 12 points, while holding USC scoreless, in the final 3:42 to complete its come-from-behind victory, 57-46, Tuesday afternoon in South Orange, New Jersey. Four Pirate players scored in double figures while South Carolina’s Sarah Burgess led all scorers with 16 points.
With the loss, South Carolina drops to 8-3 on the season and travels to Minnesota to face the sixth-ranked Golden Gophers Saturday in a nationally-televised game.
“This was a frustrating performance today,” said Gamecock head coach Susan Walvius. “We played poorly and are a much better team than we showed today. We lost the game today because of turnovers and carelessness. We did a poor job of taking care of the ball. We’re not playing with confidence and that surprises me.
“We had a chance to blow the game open today after playing poorly to open the game. We came down and made three straight turnovers and that was the game.
Over the last two games, we’ve struggled offensively. In our first few games, we averaged almost 99 points per game. And now we’re struggling to put the ball in the hole. We’re struggling with our rebounding. We’re a young team and the issues are correctable.”
