COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – Tarence Kinsey scored 12 points and pulled down 11 rebounds to lead South Carolina to a 64-52 win over Arkansas on Wednesday night.

The Gamecocks (12-7, 4-4 Southeastern Conference) handed the Razorbacks (14-7, 2-6) their sixth loss in the last seven games. It was also Arkansas’ 13th straight conference road loss.

In a slow-paced affair that marked the midway point of the SEC regular season for both teams, South Carolina used a 13-2 run over 7:34 to go up 42-25 with 11:59 left after Rocky Trice hit a 3-pointer and a jumper just inside the arc in a 42-second span.

Arkansas never got closer than 11 after that.

Carlos Powell led South Carolina with 14 points while Ronnie Brewer scored a game-high 20 points to pace Arkansas, which shot 31.1 percent – including just six of 24 from 3-point range. The Gamecocks hit 46.8 percent.

South Carolina scored the final six points of the first half off three straight turnovers by the Razorbacks – they had just two in the first 18 minutes – to grab its biggest lead of the half at 29-21 at intermission.

Brewer scored 11 points for Arkansas, which led 9-6 when the Gamecocks went on a 9-0 run to go up 15-9 on Trice’s jumper with 9:30 left. The Razorbacks closed within one before South Carolina’s late run.
