South Carolina to face Akron in Christmas Day game

(RNN) - South Carolina (3-6) faces Akron in the Diamond Head Classic on Christmas Day at 6:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2.

Because of a scheduling coincidence, the two teams are scheduled to play again in Columbia on Dec. 28.

The Gamecocks are 1-1 in the Classic with a win over St. Mary's and a loss on Monday to Boise State in the semifinal round. 

The Zips (6-3) lost 83-60 to nationally ranked Iowa State in their semifinal game. They were within a point, 41-40 with about 17 minutes left in the second half when Iowa State began to stretch its lead and take control.

Reggie McAdams led the team with 13 points, hitting five-of-10 shots including three, 3-pointers. Demetrius Treadwell, a 6-7 senior forward and the team's leading scorer had 10 points, five below his season average.

Poor shooting took the Gamecocks out of the game early against Boise (8-2); they trailed 43-28 at the half and went on to lose 80-54.

Brenton Williams scored 14 points for the Gamecocks and Duane Notice added 13.
