Short-handed South Carolina advances to 2nd round of NIT

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Laimonas Chatkevicius scored a career-high 30 points on 15-of-16 shooting, Sindarius Thornwell added 20 points and short-handed South Carolina cruised past High Point 88-66 on Tuesday night to move into the second round of the NIT.

South Carolina coach Frank Martin announced Tuesday that five backup players were suspended indefinitely for "conduct issues."

But the Gamecocks did not miss a beat as they went up by 18 through the first 11 minutes.
