Tulsa will be on the hunt for its first win of the season when it squares off against battle-tested UT Arlington on Friday afternoon in the home opener for the Golden Hurricane. The Golden Hurricane (0-2) dropped both of their games in last weekend's CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City, falling to TCU and then South Carolina. UT Arlington is 1-3, including a 72-60 loss at Arkansas on Wednesday that was the Mavericks' fourth game in eight days.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Jermaine Couisnard scored 20 points, AJ Lawson added 17 points, and South Carolina beat Tulsa 69-58 on Sunday in the Hall of Fame Classic.
Looking to rebound quickly from their respective season-opening defeats, the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Tulsa Golden Hurricane square off in the consolation game of the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City on Sunday afternoon. Tulsa (0-1), meanwhile, couldn't hang on to an early 10-point lead against TCU and fell, 70-65. With their coach, Frank Martin, sporting a new shaved-head look, the Gamecocks had a hard time slowing down a sharpshooting Liberty squad that buried 11 more 3-pointers Saturday, including eight in the first half, only two days after they nailed 19 triples in a win over Mississippi State.
