COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – John Petty Jr. scored 20 points and No. 11 Alabama held off South Carolina 81-78. The Crimson Tide bounced back from their first Southeastern Conference loss of the season. Alabama was off to its best league start in 65 years before falling to 10th-ranked Missouri this past Saturday. But behind Petty’s first 20-point game in six contests, Alabama won its sixth straight over the Gamecocks. Justin Minaya cut South Carolina’s deficit to 79-78 with 2 seconds left, but James Rojas was quickly fouled and made both free throws to seal the victory. AJ Lawson led the Gamecocks with 21 points, making five 3-pointers.
