No. 2 Gamecocks Run Past Coker 100-25

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The South Carolina women's basketball team scored early and often in a 100-25 win over Coker College in the Gamecocks' lone exhibition contest of the season Sunday afternoon at Colonial Life Arena.

Freshman A'ja Wilson led all scorers with 18 points while also collecting a game-high 10 rebounds.

Wilson drained a pair of free throws on the first possession of the game, and South Carolina netted points on nine of its first 11 possessions.

Wilson and senior Aleighsa Welch went to work in the paint, combining for 10 points in the initial run of the afternoon that produced an 18-5 lead just 6:30 into the game.

Midway through the first half, sophomore Alaina Coates went on a run of her own, posting three straight baskets down low, all assisted by junior Tina Roy, to push the score to 24-5.

With just under six minutes to go in the half, South Carolina made a line change, putting five new players on the court. Freshman Bianca Cuevas drained a jumper and the Gamecocks' first 3-pointer of the game on back-to-back possessions to put the Gamecocks up 41-6.

On the following play, Cobra senior Kelley Godbout hit a jumper at the 4:36 mark to end a nearly 11-minute stretch without a Coker basket. During the drought, South Carolina went on a 27-1 run to open a 41-8 lead.

The Gamecocks took a 51-13 advantage in to halftime and scored the first nine baskets out of the break to take an even stronger hold on the game at 69-15.

The cushion allowed South Carolina to employ several different combinations and to get every player on the court on the way to a 100-25 win.
