NEW YORK -- South Carolina coach Frank Martin savored his teams victory over No. 25 Michigan and then went straight to the videotape.While his team enjoyed a flight to New York, Martin watched film of his last game at Kansas State -- a loss to Syracuse in the 2012 NCAA Tournament. He discovered everything his former team did wrong against the Oranges zone defense and vowed the Gamecocks would not repeat those miscues.They didnt and sprinkled in some dominating defense.Sindarius Thornwell scored 16 points as South Carolina had enough offense to go along with its defense and never trailed in its 64-50 victory over No. 18 Syracuse on Saturday in the Brooklyn Hoops Holiday Invitational at Barclays Center.I slept on it and I said `Ive got to change what I did and you saw we ran the bigs kind of up to the elbows, Martin said. We needed to lift the big up to the zone rather than try behind it. Once we lift the zone then find the cracks behind it so we can have space to shoot.Credit our guys. I dont claim to be Einstein. I just try to do my job. They listened, they were in tune (and) they executed.South Carolina shot 45 percent and scored 30 points in the paint. The Gamecocks scored most of their points after frequently getting defensive stops via 12 steals and 17 Syracuse turnovers.Every game we come out and guard, thats what our coaching staff and our team prides itself on, defense, South Carolina guard PJ Dozier said. We make our offense out of our defense.The Gamecocks effectiveness at getting through Syracuses zone and forcing turnovers resulted in their second win in three seasons against a Top 25 team in Brooklyn. On Jan. 2, 2014, South Carolina had a 64-60 victory over No. 9 Iowa State.Thornwell made 9 of 10 free throws. He also had six rebounds, five assists, three steals and was named the MVP of the Invitational.Maik Kotsar also had 16 points for South Carolina (6-0) while Dozier added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Gamecocks, who gave up 12 of the first 18 rebounds but finished with a 37-30 margin on the glass.Tyler Lydon led the Orange (4-1) with a season-high 18 points. Andrew White III and Frank Howard added 10 points apiece as Syracuse shot 31.8 percent.They were just really good defensively, Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. They pressured you, they got in the lane. They just really are a good defensive team. We knew that because we saw the Michigan game and Michigan is probably as good an offensive movement team as anybody against man-to-man in the country and they couldnt get anything.Lydon hit a 3-pointer with 17:05 remaining to get Syracuse within 40-32. Following a defensive stop, Lydon had another basket forcing South Carolina to call time out.Two free throws by White cut the deficit to 47-43 with 11:39 remaining but the Orange went nearly 5 minutes without a point while Howard missed four free throws and Lydon missed an open 3-pointer.The drought ended when White hit a 3-pointer to make it 51-46 with about 6 1/2 minutes left.Following Whites 3-pointer, the Gamecocks gradually restored the double-digit lead they held late in the first half. South Carolina took a 57-47 lead on a basket by Kotsar with about 3 minutes left and finished off the win at the free throw line.BIG PICTURE:South Carolina: South Carolinas defense continued to hold teams to low shooting percentages and it could make the Gamecocks difficult to play against for other SEC teams. The Gamecocks have held teams under 40 percent in each of their six games.Syracuse: Lydon can take over at times and did not disappoint for at least the two NBA scouts in attendance to watch him.OFFENSIVE WOES:How bad was Syracuses offense? The Orange were outscored by their football counterparts who lost 76-61 to Pittsburgh on Saturday.POLL IMPLICATIONS:The Gamecocks were not one of 16 teams to receive any Top 25 votes last week. That should change after South Carolina remained unbeaten with wins over No. 25 Michigan and No. 18 Syracuse.Syracuse will likely stay in the poll though it is unlikely the Orange will remain at No. 18. Out of the teams behind them in the poll, Baylor and Iowa State remained undefeated and likely will move ahead of the Orange in the next poll.HONORING PEARL WASHINGTON: Before the national anthem, there was a moment of silence of former Syracuse guard Dwayne Pearl Washington, who died of brain cancer on April 20. Syracuse is the midst of a 31-day campaign to honor Washingtons memory. The campaign culminates Dec. 17 when Syracuse hosts former Big East rival Georgetown. Before his three seasons at Syracuse from 1983 to 1986, Washington attended Boys and Girls High School, which is located about 2 1/2 miles east of Barclays Center.UP NEXT:South Carolina hosts Vermont on Dec. 1.Syracuse is at No. 16 Wisconsin on Tuesday in ACC/Big Ten Challenge.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25. Jordan Wilkins Jersey . -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position. Nyheim Hines Jersey . To the surprise of many, it isnt the Wolverines but their in-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans. http://www.cheapindianapoliscoltsjerseys.com/ .Y. - New York City has been selected to host the NBA All-Star weekend in 2015, with the game played at Madison Square Garden and the slam dunk contest and other skills events held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Darius Leonard Jersey . -- Nate Robinson has played for seven teams, so beating one of them is no longer a rare occurrence. Zaire Franklin Jersey .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the St. Jason Day defended golfs big four after their forecast heavyweight showdown failed to materialise at Royal Troon.All the hype before the 145th British Open centred on Days bid to keep Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy at bay as the superstar quartet jostled for the famous Claret Jug and golfs top ranking.Instead veterans Phil Mickelson and Henrik Stenson have stolen the show with a swag of less-heralded Americans and Europeans playing supporting roles.But Day believes any criticism of the Gen-Y dominators is unfair, citing an unfavourable draw for golfs top four players at Troon.Australias world No.1 even has the numbers to back it up.Every player in the top 10 at the Opens halfway point enjoyed the best of the conditions on Thursday morning and Friday afternoon, while Day, Johnson, Spieth and McIlroy were left to deal with the elements, including a 55kph squall that swept through the links course late in the second round.While Day struggled to a two-over-par 73 in tough early going on Thursday, Mickelson made hay in the afternoon with a major championship record-equalling 63 while third-round leader Stenson opened with 68 and 65.The pair have engaged in a two-man shootout ever since.Day said it was no great coincidence he and his big-name rivals were battling to keep pace.Rory, Jordan and myself are in the other wave, so that has a lot to do with it, Day said after his even-par 71 on Saturday.I think the best score out of our wave was two under with Patrick Reed and Rory, and obviously the (other) wave has played great golf and thats why theyre at the top of the leaderboard.ddddddddddddSo theres obviously a little bit of luck that is involved with getting to the top as well as playing good golf.But, once again, you get what you take and unfortunately thats just the way it is.Youve just got to try and get yourself into contention.Playing the brutal back nine in seven over has cost Day, but hes not the only one to have suffered.A triple-bogey on the railway hole, the punishing 11th, dashed Johnsons hopes on Saturday after the US Open champion surged to five under and within sight of the leaders.He finished at one under after his round of 72 included 39 on the back nine.McIlroy ended the third round with only 13 clubs after smashing his three wood in disgust on the 16th as the 2014 champion slumped to even for the tournament with a 73.And like Day, Spieth picked up four shots going out before giving them all back coming home to be five over and out following his third-round 72.The American then lashed reporters for expecting too much.Spieth said it seems hes become a victim of his own success after arriving at St Andrews last year with the chance to become the first player since 1953 to win golfs first three majors of the year and finishing one shot shy of a playoff.It seems a bit unfair at 22 to be expecting something like that all the time, Spieth said.
