AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Chris Denson scored 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting to help Auburn beat South Carolina 83-67 on Wednesday night.

Allen Payne had 15 points and Tahj Shamsid-Deen added 14 for the Tigers (13-13, 5-10 Southeastern Conference) in a battle between two of the bottom three teams in the league standings. Auburn won both regular-season meetings.

The Gamecocks (10-18, 3-12) lost their third straight game despite getting 26 points from Brenton Williams. Williams made 5 of 9 3-pointers while Mindaugas Kacina scored 10 points.

Auburn made 25 of 48 shots (52.1 percent) to snap a two-game skid.

South Carolina fell behind by as much as 20 in the second half despite shooting 59.1 percent (13 of 22) after halftime.

The game turned into a foul-fest with 53 combined fouls and 60 free throw attempts. Auburn's Shamsid-Deen and Jordon Granger were also called for technicals in the second half.
