The bigger issue for Auburn (23-4, 11-3 SEC), which remains alone atop the SEC standings despite the loss, is the dislocated ankle suffered by leading shot-blocker Anfernee McLemore during the first half.
SC outlasted a frantic comeback by #10 Auburn to come away with an 84-75 win.
McLemore took to Twitter to thank Auburn fans for their support and provide an update on his injury following the game.

The FCC officials told the aides that they would open an investigation, according to four people with knowledge of the meetings. The investigation was reportedly launched in December, and it is unclear how far along it has come or when it will conclude.
McLemore tweeted after USC's 84-75 win over the Gamecocks on Saturday that he dislocated his left ankle and fractured his tibia.
Murray finished with 7 points and 5 rebounds while Okeke ended the day with 11 points and 9 rebounds. "For us, it's been next man up".
"It was really classy of Coach Martin to go out there and also put his hands on him", Pearl said. "We will find a way".

McLemore has started 21 of 27 games for the 10th-ranked Tigers this season. Murray leads in rebounds with 7.0 while Harper tops in assists with 6.0 per game. A Jared Harper layup cut the deficit to six with 1:25 left, but Chris Silva put SC back up eight with a three-point play at the other end.
"I told Frank after the game he's got my number", Bruce Pearl said. "They had a lot of offensive rebounds". Maik Kotsar made a reverse layup, and then, in one of the biggest possessions of the game, SC grabbed two offensive rebounds and ran 1:13 off the clock before Wesley Myers drew a foul. Auburn, a team that had started slowly in several games, never recovered from starting the game by making only two field goals in the first 13:47 as the Gamecocks made eight of their first 12 shots. Defensively, Auburn basketball yields 72.2 points per game against the opposing teams.
Despite the result, Pearl praised his team's resilience. "This is back to back slap-arounds, so obviously he's got some things figured about what we do and how to stop us".
