Five Gamecocks score in double figures in win over Ole Miss

Five Gamecocks score in double figures in win over Ole Miss”

Ole Miss (10-5, 0-2 SEC) was within nine points heading into the final frame, but No. 4/5 SC (13-1, 2-0 SEC) - led by Preseason ESPNW National Player of the Year A'ja Wilson (25 points, 15 rebounds) - went off for a 29-12 advantage in the final frame to keep the Rebels at bay.

Both teams started slowly, before a 9-0 second quarter run put the Gamecocks in control.

Ole Miss was led by junior guard Madinah Muhammad, who led all scorers with 29 points but needed 22 field goal attempts to get there. I thought that our bench was really good to us (Wednesday). We knew that they were a great 3-point shooting team coming out and knew that was one of their main weapons. He received extra minutes because freshman starter Rayshaun Hammonds fouled out in eight minutes. "Guys like Yante andTurtle (William Jackson II) kept looking to find me, and I just kept shooting". She finished the game with eight points, one rebound, one assist and two turnovers, missing her first three 3-point attempts before making two in a row. During a 13-3 run midway in the half, Georgia got consecutive back-door dunks by Maten and Derek Ogbeide and a putback by Maten, giving the Bulldogs a 17-11 lead.

Breein Tyree: The Ole Miss guard was a force both outside the arch and inside in the paint, finishing with 17 points.

But Georgia closed out the half with a 10-3 advantage. She scored eight points and assisted on another basket. He had 14 points at intermission.

Helping bridge that gap was sophomore Shelby Gibson, who nailed all three of her three-pointers in the second quarter.

"Promise Taylor came in during the second half and didn't play scared", Insell said. Gibson entered 2-of-3 from three-point land this season, but she doubled her season total tonight in an offensive ploy to pull Wilson out on the perimeter. He missed, but was fouled and made all three free throws to put the Bulldogs up 51-40 with 13:26 to go.

"I thought for three quarters we played really, really well", said Ole Miss head coach Matt Insell. "I think of our six (assists), four were in the last two minutes when we were just trying to battle back the best we could".

Sophomore guard Tyasha Harris posted her eight-straight game of five or more assists with six against the Rebels. However, Georgia ultimately hit another three-pointer to seal the win for the Bulldogs.

A few clutch 3-pointers from Juwan Parker allowed the Bulldogs to settle in with less than five minutes remaining in the game.

Ole Miss was up and down during nonconference play. "We had to make sure we ended tonight being 1-1 in SEC play. Everybody contributed in their own way and I'm really proud of what my boys did". Our bench came out strong and played really well tonight. A lot of what we do drives the ball into the paint, and Wilson just hangs out in there.
