Havens hits, Young resists

It's too late to do anything too in-depth about any of this right now, though I'll take a deeper look at the Clemson series come Monday evening.

That said, Reese Havens is already building a case to be the team MVP this year.

Reese Havens' RBI single to right in the sixth inning lifted South Carolina to a weekend sweep of rival Clemson with a 5-1 victory Sunday.

Havens' hit put the Gamecocks up 2-0 at Clemson's Doug Kingsmore Stadium. A game earlier at South Carolina's Sarge Frye Field, Havens had five RBIs and a grand slam to sink the Tigers, 10-1.

This is beyond carrying the team. Can we just bat Havens nine times in a row? (I know, that's against the rules, but still...)

And it comes against a team that has given Havens trouble in the past.

If it's March and it's football, it must be an arrest. In this case, an O-lineman you've probably never heard of.

South Carolina offensive lineman Kevin Young, 20, faces two misdemeanor charges after being arrested about 1:30 a.m. Sunday following a fight in Five Points.

Young, a redshirt freshman from Clearwater, Fla., is charged with fighting and resisting arrest, Columbia Police Department spokesman Brick Lewis said. ...

Young, who is 6-foot-4, 320 pounds, has yet to play for the Gamecocks.

His status with the team was uncertain Sunday. USC athletics department policy calls for players who have been arrested to be suspended until their cases are resolved.

Resisting arrest? Granted, no one's ever accused offensive lineman of being rocket scientists -- but resisting arrest?

Maybe suspending Young would actually be good for the team.
