(Monday, December 23rd)

Final Score: Boise State 80, South Carolina 54

Honolulu, HI (SportsNetwork.com) - Anthony Drmic scored a game-high 30 points as the Boise State Broncos crushed the South Carolina Gamecocks, 80-54, in the semifinals of the Diamond Head Classic at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Drmic shot 10-of-17 from the floor and 8-of-11 at the free-throw line, adding six rebounds for the Broncos (10-2) as they picked up their second straight win. Mikey Thompson came off the bench to provide 10 points, while Jeff Elorriaga and Ryan Watkins responded with nine and eight points, respectively.

The Gamecocks (3-6), losers of four of their last five, were led by Brenton Williams who tallied 14 points off the bench, but he shot only 4-of-12 from the field, including 2-of-7 behind the 3-point line. Duane Notice tacked on 13 points, while leading scorer Sindarius Thornwell (13.5 ppg), missed all six of his field goal chances and finished with just a single point.
