COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - The last time the Gamecock women played Arkansas, the Razorbacks upset Carolina in the SEC tournament -- denying them a chance to win a fifth consecutive conference tournament championship.

Thursday night, No. 4 Carolina hosted No. 21 Arkansas.

The Gamecocks opened the game on a 10 to 2 scoring run and kept that momentum going much of the game, taking a 21-point lead into the fourth quarter.

Then the Razorbacks started to make a comeback, making it a nine point game.

But the Gamecocks hung on to win it 91-82.

Freshman guard Zia Cooke celebrated her birthday by scoring a team-high 21 points.

With the win, the Gamecocks improved to 15-1 for the season.
