COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – Kaela Davis had 20 points off six 3-pointers and Allisha Gray 18 points as No. 6 South Carolina bounced back from its only loss with a 98-58 blowout of Minnesota on Sunday.
The Gamecocks (7-1) finished with 16 3-pointers, the most in coach Dawn Staley’s nine seasons and second most in program history behind the 17 against Western Carolina in 1994.
Davis, a Georgia Tech transfer who came off the bench for the first time this season, was a big reason for South Carolina’s outside success. She hit five of her first six shots from behind the arc as the Gamecocks built a 57-27 halftime lead.
Kenisha Bell led Minnesota (7-4) with 16 points. Carlie Wagner, the Gophers’ leading scorer at 20.7 points a game, missed her first nine shots and finished with six points.
