COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – Sindarius Thornwell had 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead South Carolina past cold-shooting and 25th-ranked Michigan 61-46 on Wednesday night.

The Gamecocks improved to 5-0 for a second straight season and knocked off their first ranked opponent since an 81-78 win at No. 8 Texas A&M last February. South Carolina got a big assist in this one from Michigan’s awful outside touch – it finished 10 of 52 (19.6 percent) for its worst shooting percentage in six years.

It was the first time the Wolverines (4-1) hadn’t reached 50 points since scoring 42 in a loss to Eastern Michigan on Dec. 9, 2014.

The Wolverines scored more points from the free throw line, 24, than the field. They hit just two of 26 attempts from behind the arc.
