COLUMBIA, S.C.(AP) -- Jarvis Varnado had 19 points to lead five Mississippi State players in double figures and the Bulldogs won their fourth straight over South Carolina, 76-63, on Saturday.

Barry Stewart scored 18, Ravern Johnson 15, Kodi Augustus 13 and Dee Bost 11 for the Bulldogs (21-8, 9-5 SEC), who used a 21-7 run in the second half to break things open.

Devan Downey, the SEC's leading scorer, was held to 12 points, his lowest output in a league game this season. The Gamecocks (14-14, 5-9) have lost five straight.
