South Carolina Women Power Past Ole Miss, 66-45

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) – A’ja Wilson scored 16 points, Tiffany Mitchell added 12 and No. 3 South Carolina beat Mississippi 66-45 on Thursday night.

South Carolina (27-1, 15-0 Southeastern Conference) has won five straight games since its only loss of the season to top-ranked UConn.

The Gamecocks jumped out to a 34-19 by halftime, holding Ole Miss to just five points in the second quarter.

It was another rough night for Ole Miss in a season full of them. The Rebels – who have lost nine straight and 13 of 14 – shot just 14 of 63 (22.2 percent) from the field.

Ole Miss (10-18, 2-13) made a brief run in the third quarter to pull within 36-29, but South Carolina’s Bianca Cuevas stopped the charge with a pair of free throws and the Gamecocks were on their way to the win.

The Rebels were led by Madinah Muhammad’s 20 points.
