SOUTH CAROLINA WOMEN'S BASKETBALL - Gamecocks win 13th straight game
Aliyah Boston scored 15 points and top-ranked South Carolina rode an overwhelming opening period to its 13th consecutive win, beating Georgia 88-53 on Sunday.
Stephanie Paul led Georgia (12-8, 3-4) with 13 points.
South Carolina used its dominant defense to grab control early.
After Georgia's Jenna Staiti scored the game's first points, the Gamecocks' 14-0 run left the Lady Bulldogs with double-digit deficits the remainder of the game. Harris sank a 3-pointer and added another jumper as the bookend baskets of the run.
South Carolina had seven steals in taking a 28-8 lead at the end of the opening period. Many of the forced turnovers followed Georgia's ill-fated attempts to pass the ball inside. The Lady Bulldogs made only 3-13 shots from the field in the deflating opening period.
Gabby Connally's third 3-pointer of the second period helped Georgia trim the South Carolina lead to 13 points at 34-21. The Gamecocks stretched the lead to 26 points in the 3rd period.
Connally had 11 points and 9 assists.
South Carolina returns to action at Ole Miss Thursday at 8 pm. The game will air on the SEC Network.
