COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - PJ Dozier had a career-high 21 points and No. 20 South Carolina improved to 7-0 for a second straight season with a 68-50 victory over Vermont on Thursday night.

Dozier, the 6-foot-6 sophomore, helped the Gamecocks to a 13-1 run at the start of the second half. Maik Kotsar had eight points in the charge while Dozier had a 3-pointer and a thunderous finish to an alley-oop pass that had the crowd on its feet as South Carolina took a 49-32 lead.

The Catamounts (6-3) could not respond to taller, quicker South Carolina.

Dozier had three of the Gamecocks' four 3-pointers in besting his previous high of 17 points, set in the season opener against Louisiana Tech.

Kotsar had 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting, mostly from close to the basket, while Chris Silva added 12 points for South Carolina.

Dozier had six rebounds, as did the 6-9 Silva, along with three steals.

Anthony Lamb had 14 points, the only Vermont player in double figures.
