COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Chris Denson and KT Harrell each scored 25 points to lead Auburn to a 79-74 win over South Carolina on Wednesday night.
Auburn (11-9, 3-6 SEC) led by 16 in the second half, but the Gamecocks (8-14, 1-8) went on an 18-2 run in five minutes to tie it at 62. Things got bleaker when Denson and Harrell each picked up their fourth foul within a minute of each other. But Auburn coach Tony Barbee didn't keep them out of the game for long.
Denson had a 3-point play and two more free throws and Harrell hit back-to-back jumpers to put the Tigers up 73-67 with 2:55 to go.
Brenton Williams led the Gamecocks with 29 points.
Auburn has won three SEC games in a row in the same season for the first time since 2009.
