And let's give a big hand to the South Carolina crowd ... this isn't a one-time thing. This support is for real and it's not going away.

UConn 66, South Carolina 54 is final score from Columbia. I think what most expected. Let's see how much Gamecocks can improve for March.

Kaela Davis made 153 3-pointers in her 2 seasons at Georgia Tech, Allisha Gray 118 in 2 seasons at North Carolina.

Remember, Allisha Gray and Kaela Davis, transfers to South Carolina sitting out this year, CAN shoot the 3. And will ... next season.

South Carolina crowd is *begging* Gamecocks to shoot from outside. But that's a weakness for this team. No getting around it.

I have to admit I love the passion of the South Carolina fan who's sitting behind me. He's living and dying with every possession. :)

UConn 54, South Carolina 33 after three quarters. Can the Gamecocks at least make a run in the 4th quarter?

Mechelle Voepel @MechelleV

The crowd has not had much of a chance to be a factor tonight. Another thing that UConn tends to do: neutralize foes' homecourt advantage.

A'ja Wilson not out to warm up before second half, not on bench. Asia Dozier not playing this game because of hand injury.

Tiffany Mitchell not attacking like she usually does. Admittedly, UConn makes it hard to do that. But wonder if she's still sore, too (Back)
