Here is the write up from the LAT...

Against Nevada Las Vegas on Friday, Dedmon finally made an impact — only not the kind he wanted.

Showcasing the inexperience of a player who began playing organized basketball at 18, Dedmon drew a game-turning technical foul in the second half that keyed UNLV's 66-55 win in the Las Vegas Invitational.

With USC leading by two and 9 minutes 38 seconds left, Dedmon argued a bit too much with a referee after being issued his fourth personal foul.

"It was pretty shocking," said Dedmon, who scored four points in five minutes, "but I guess I did enough to get a technical."

Looks like this team will have a lot of growing to do this season...

Here is the brief game preview for tonights game.

The Gamecocks (2-3), led in scoring by senior forward Malik Cooke (11.8 points per game), lost to No. 1 North Carolina, 87-62, Friday. They fell to Tennessee State and Elon earlier this season, and barely beat Mississippi Valley State on Tuesday.

I will have a game thread up for the South Carolina game later.
