South Carolina’s No. 1 Women rout Mississippi, reach SEC Finals

0

GREENVILLE, SC (AP) — Coach Dawn Staley nodded as reserve Laeticia Amihere spoke about the versatility of No. 1 South Carolina.

The undefeated Gamecocks are certainly talented with two-time SEC Player of the Year Aliyah Boston and leading scorer Zia Cooke. They’re also deep with players like Victaria Saxton and Amihere filling major roles, helping South Carolina reach the Conference Tournament Finals for the eighth time in nine seasons.

“I think our bench is a huge asset to our team,” said Amihere, who scored a game-high 17 points in an 80-51 win over Mississippi in Saturday’s SEC Semifinals.

Boston recorded its 80th career double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds. Cooke had 14 points and Brea Beal, another starter, 13 for Gamecocks (31-0) who won their 37th straight game.

They will face No. 4 LSU or Tennessee for the conference championship on Sunday.

South Carolina needed a big escape at Mississippi two weeks ago, trailing late before forcing overtime and keeping its perfect season intact with a 64-57 win.
