On the day USC officially unveiled the statue to all-time great A’Ja Wilson, the current Gamecocks played a lot like that 2017 national championship team led by Wilson. The Gamecocks went on a 25-4 run starting in the final minutes of the third quarter and continuing in the fourth quarter to stretch a 3 point lead to 21. The Gamecocks shot 66% from the floor in the second half.
It’s the fourth time this season the Gamecocks have scored at least 100 points, and they extended their SEC winning streak to 21 straight. The Gamecocks scored 60 points in the paint, and their 18 offensive rebounds led to 24 second chance points.
The Gamecocks had four double-digit scorers led by forward Aliyah Boston with 26 points. She also had 16 rebounds and 6 blocks. Brea Beal had a career high with 22 points.
