University of South Carolina 88, Rider University 76

COLUMBIA, SC-Junior Nurideen Lindsey (Philadelphia, PA/Overbrook) scored 26 points, 19 in the second half, but it was not enough as the Broncs lost to South Carolina Monday in the Hoops for Hope Classic.

SC (3-0) made 13 (of 27) three-point field goals, scoring 44 points in each half. "I didn't feel we guarded well enough," said Rider head coach Kevin Baggett.  "Any time a team hangs 88 points on you you're going to lose. We needed to keep them in the 60s if we wanted to have a chance to win."

The Broncs shot 50.9 percent from the field, including six of 14 three-pointers, but were out-rebounded 33-23.  "I didn't walk away thinking we couldn't play with South Carolina," Baggett said.  "We just needed to play smarter and defend better."

The Gamecocks made three different three-pointers with less than five seconds remaining on the shot clock. "Those are daggers to you when you are trying to come back," Baggett said. 

Rider (2-2) scored 10 straight points, five by junior Anthony Myles (Dover, DE/Poly-Tech), to cut the lead to 86-76 with 1:00 left, but that was as close as the Broncs could get.  Myles finished with 13 points.

Holding a 60-53 lead, SC out-scored Rider 13-7, four points by Lakeem Jackson, to take a 73-60 lead with 8:50 left to play. Jackson finished with 14 points and seven rebounds.

Rider out-scored SC 12-7 over the final 5:10 of the first half to cut the lead to seven, 44-37.

Rider senior Jonathon Thompson (Orlando, Fla./Jones) added 14 points and four assists.

The Gamecocks were led by Brenton Williams, who made five (of eight) three-pointers and finished with 22 points.  Mindaugas Kacinas scored 18 points and grabbed five rebounds.

Rider junior forward Daniel Stewart (Philadelphia, PA/Neumann-Goretti) scored seven points and grabbed a game-high eight rebounds.  Sophomore center Junior Fortunat (Montreal, Quebec/Roman Catholic) added seven points.

Stewart and Fortunat were a combined five for six from the field. Good percentage but not enough shots.  "We wanted to get it in the house, to drive," Baggett said.  "We drove it in (42 points in the paint) but we forgot about throwing it in to our bigs, Junior and Danny."

Trailing 29-15, Rider went on an 8-3 run, three points by Lindsey, to cut the SC lead to 32-23 with 7:01 left in the first half.

SC led 21-15 before going on an 8-0 run to take a 29-15 lead mid-way through the first half.

Holding a 7-6 lead, SC out-scored Rider 11-3, five points by Brian Richardson, to take an 18-9 lead with 14:42 remaining in the first half.  Richardson finished with eight points and six assists.

The 26 points tied Lindsey's career high at Rider. Lindsey made seven of nine foul shots, also a career high.

Rider travels to Dallas, Texas to take on SMU Wednesday in the second game of the Hoops for Hope Classic.
