South Carolina coach Eddie Fogler thought his team lost its poise the last time it got attention. Now that the Gamecocks have won eight straight and are in the rankings for the first time in six years, he'll make sure that doesn't happen again. "I'll talk to them about it," Fogler said yesterday as South Carolina, alone in Southeastern Conference play at 7-0, was ranked No. 25. "They didn't do very good the last time they were mentioned in some preseason polls. I don't know how much that had to do with the rankings.

At the animal shelter, these supposedly most murderous of fowl gently pecked food from children's hands. They left other animals, including cats and pet rats, alone. Faced with their own kind, they acted downright domestic. And, when put near hens, "they do normal rooster behavior," one shelter worker testified. "They mate them. " So, the 17 gamecocks captured during a raid on an East Camden cockfighting pit shall live, a Camden County judge ruled yesterday. The roosters will be put up for adoption by the Animal Welfare Association, which has kept the birds at its Southampton Township shelter since the raid early this month.

Renaldo Balkman scored 14 points and had 12 rebounds as South Carolina defeated Alaska-Anchorage, 65-60, last night in the Carrs/Safeway Great Alaska Shootout in Anchorage. The Gamecocks (3-0) managed to hold off the pesky Division II Seawolves (4-2) with Balkman's aggressive inside play on both ends of the court. Besides leading the Gamecocks in scoring along with guard Tarence Kinsey, the 6-8 Balkman dominated on defense with four blocks and three steals. The Seawolves hung on through most of the game through the play of Kemmy Burgess.

Devan Downey scored 21 points and Mike Holmes had 12 to lead South Carolina to a 68-67 win over Providence last night in the Big East/SEC Invitational at the Wachovia Center. The Gamecocks (5-4) held on even though they had a nearly six-minute stretch without a field goal late in the second half that allowed the Friars to knock a double-digit deficit all the way down to one. Weyinmi Efejuku was fouled with 0.2 seconds left on a driving layup and the Friars trailing by two. With a chance to send the game into overtime, Efejuku made only one of two free throws and South Carolina finally escaped with the victory.

If you thought there were stylistic differences in the Bush and Gore campaigns, wait until you check out Saturday's matchup of No. 5 Florida and No. 21 South Carolina. The winner will be the East representative in the Southeastern Conference championship game. The Gators (8-1) - who average 41.3 points per game and are seeking a berth in the SEC title contest for the seventh time in the event's nine-year existence - somehow represent both wide-open offense and stodgy tradition.

Forget BJ McKie and Melvin Watson. These days, the last person South Carolina opponents want to see with the ball in the final seconds is Antonio Grant. The redshirt freshman hit a desperation three-pointer as time expired yesterday, capping a frenzied comeback from a 23-point deficit that gave the No. 13 Gamecocks a 67-65 triumph over No. 18 Cincinnati in Columbia, S.C. Grant picked up a loose ball with the clock ticking down and launched a 25-foot prayer that swished through as the horn sounded, setting off a raucous celebration that crashed into press row and brought dozens of fans streaming onto the court.

For two seasons and a bit of change, St. Joseph's had been right there in 13 games against quality teams. And found unique ways to lose. If this team, a team its coach felt certain was very good, was ever going to become something more than just good enough to lose bravely, it needed to make a stand. Going into last night's game against South Carolina at the Palestra, the Hawks were 2-3 and hadn't played in 13 days. This, then, was the time. And, it turned out, the place.

USUALLY, COLLEGE football players wear stickers on their helmets to signify individual or team accomplishments. South Carolina is doing something powerfully different. The Gamecocks will wear stickers to commemorate the nine black men and women who were killed in a shooting June 17 at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C. The sticker features a palmetto tree - the state tree - with nine doves flying around it. "Our team felt like it would be appropriate to have a sticker on our helmet in honor and memory of the nine people that lost their lives in Charleston this summer," coach Steve Spurrier said yesterday.

IT COULD ALREADY be too late for South Carolina to save its season, at least if you're talking about maybe still getting into the inaugural four-team playoff. But one of the best perks about playing in the SEC is you're never that far away from being in yet another spot where you can make an impression. In a week otherwise devoid of marquee matchups, sixth-ranked Georgia is at No. 24 South Carolina, which was ninth before it opened with a 52-28 home loss to a Texas A & M team without Johnny Football that has risen in the poll from 21 to 7. Anyway, the Dawgs have lost their last two in Columbia.

SIX YEARS AGO when Dawn Staley took over the women's basketball team at South Carolina, she was coming off a year in which her Temple team went 21-13, and 12-2 in the Atlantic 10. The first year as coach was the rough one, with the Gamecocks managing only two wins in the Southeastern Conference. Now, the Gamecocks are a national power. They sit at 26-3 after yesterday's loss to No. 10 Tennessee and are ranked fourth in the nation by the Associated Press . Much of the quick turnaround can be credited to the Philadelphia native Staley, though she will deflect credit to her players.
