Gamecock women beat Florida Sunday afternoon
No. 7 South Carolina defeated Florida 64-57 on Sunday. A’ja Wilson scored 22 points in the win. Ty Harris had 18 for South Carolina.
It was not an easy win. At one point the Gators (10-15, 2-10) took a 10-point lead, but USC roared back for the team’s twentieth win of the season.
Gamecock head coach Dawn Staley on the Gamecocks getting to 20 wins on the season:
“I’m looking for how we are playing. If we are playing well, the wins are going to accumulate. We will be able to win the big games. I think we are a 20-win program, especially having someone like A’ja [Wilson] on the team. She can account for at least 10, then we can scrap for the others. But certainly we look forward to whatever it is the rest of the season has for us. I think we still have enough [players], but we can play a little bit more disciplined and hit some more shots.”
South Carolina is now 20-5, 9-3 SEC. Before the game, South Carolina announced that guard Lindsey Spann would miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
USC continues SEC play on Thu., Feb. 15, when the team faces No. 18 Georgia on the road in Athens. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. ET, and the game can be seen on SEC Network+.
