COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -South Carolina's first victory over a No. 1 team will cost $25,000.
The Southeastern Conference said Wednesday that South Carolina will be fined for violating league rules against permitting fans on the playing area following a 68-62 victory over top-ranked Kentucky on Tuesday night.
The league said this was South Carolina's second violation, which triggered the higher fine. The first violation also followed a victory over Kentucky on Feb. 15, 2005. Fans rushed the Colonial Life Arena court after the Gamecocks 73-61 win over then-No. 3 Kentucky. The athletic department was fined $5,000 by the league.
SEC commissioner Mike Slive said the policy is to keep a safe environment for those who participate and attend league events.
