Mitchell scores 24 in No. 3 South Carolina's 75-39 victory
COLUMBIA - Tiffany Mitchell scored a season-high 24 points and No. 3 South Carolina finished a perfect run through the Southeastern Conference with a dominating 75-3 victory over LSU on Sunday.
The Gamecocks (28-1), who wrapped up their third straight regular-season league crown last week, joined the 2011 Tennessee squad as the only 16-0 SEC champions. And two-time defending SEC player of the year Mitchell again led the way, sparking a 22-4 second quarter run that put away the struggling Lady Tigers (9-20, 3-13), who lost 20 games in a season for the first time since 1995.
A'ja Wilson had 14 points and seven rebounds for the Gamecocks.
Rina Hill scored 16 points for LSU, who made just 13 field goals in finishing with its second-lowest point this season.
South Carolina plays hugged and high-fived after the buzzer and coach Dawn Staley told the crowd after this achievement, "We're not done."
