The top ranked USC women scorched Vanderbilt 85-30 Monday night at the Colonial Life Arena. The 30 points are the fewest USC has ever allowed in a SEC game. The Gamecocks have now won 14 in a row over the Commodores who once owned a 21-5 lead in the series. The Commodores did not score more than eight points in any quarter.
The Gamecocks finished with a 58% shooting night while holding Vandy to 20%. USC won the paint 44-4 and got 42 points off their bench. LeLe Grissett, starting for injured guard Zia Cooke, led the Gamecocks with 14 points. Aliyah Boston recorded her 12th straight double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds. Dawn Staley put Boston back in the game midway through the fourth quarter so she could get to double figures in points, then pulled her right out.
The Gamecocks are 18-1 overall and 6-1 in the SEC. They will host Ole Miss Thursday night at 6:00 PM.
