1961 - In a back and forth game that saw six ties in the second half, it was two free throws by Carolina guard Scotti Ward with nine seconds left that made the difference in a 64-61 win over Maryland. The Terps led 15-5 early and 37-32 at halftime, but the Gamecocks rallied behind Ward (19 points) and Art Whisnant (13). USC took the lead for good on another Ward free throw that made it 58-57. Maryland would pull as close as one again at 62-61, but Ward then made his two foul shots to salt the game away. The win left the two teams tied in the ACC with 3-8 conference records.
