​Ok A.J., we see you! South Carolina shooting guard A.J. Lawson put this one back with authority as the Gamecocks grabbed a 79-64 win over Ole Miss on Tuesday night. The freshman out of Toronto has been a highlight machine for SC in his first season, but Lawson outdid himself by climbing the ladder and catching a body with this one.

Lawson finished the night with 15 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. Frank Martin's Gamecocks are actually having quite the remarkable season considering their awful start. South Carolina (14-12) is 9-4 in conference play after coming out of the gates 3-6.

The 6-foot-6 freshman guard has made a nice contribution to SC so far, averaging 13.9 points per game to go along with 4.6 boards and 2.8 assists.

South Carolina finishes the season with five straight SEC opponents in Mississippi State, Alabama, Missouri, Texas A&M and Georgia. The Gamecocks currently sit at fourth in the conference behind ​Tennessee, LSU and ​Kentucky.
