Last game

After missing two games with an ankle injury, star forward A’ja Wilson made her triumphant return. In just 21 minutes, she scored 26 points, grabbed eight rebounds, and notched four blocks to go with three steals in the Gamecocks’ 81-64 win at Kentucky. Alexis Jennings, a former Wildcat, added 17 points and seven rebounds.

What to watch for

Arkansas is coming off two losses to SEC foes, a 65-51 loss to Florida and an 88-54 defeat to No. 11 Missouri on the road. Malica Monk leads the Razorbacks with 16.5 points per game, while Arkansas’ second-leading scorer and rebounder Devin Cosper is out injured.

South Carolina guard Ty Harris leads the SEC and is in 10th nationally in assists, with 6.9 per game. Wilson needs just 11 rebounds to reach 1,000 for her career, which would make her the second player in program history to score at least 2,000 points with 1,000 rebounds.
