Women's Hoops: South Carolina 65 Savannah State 39

Dawn Staley: Gaining momentum.


Congratulations to head coach Dawn Staley and the Lady Gamecocks, who romped over MEAC opponent Savannah State 65-39 - holding their seventh opponent under 50. The Lady Gamecocks broke the game open on a 17-5 first half run. Gamecocksonline, the University's official athletic website, has a game summary with video interviews.

USC freshman sensation Aleighsa Welsh led all scorers for her second game - coming off the bench to score 15 points in 13 minutes, and shooting a torrid 5-6 from the floor and 5-6 from the charity stripe, not to mention her five rebounds (2 offensive). Senior guard La'Keisha Sutton didn't have her best day (2 pts, 1-6, 3 rebounds), but junior guards Ieasia Walker and Sancheon White poured in 11 and 10, respectively.

The Lady Gamecocks are 10-2 on the season. Right now, we're in the "others receiving votes" pool in both the AP Top 25 and ESPN / USA Today polls, but if we keep this up we should crack the top 25 soon.
