South Carolina 72, Duke 52

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie knew her team had to find a way to stop South Carolina's All-American A'ja Wilson. But then she saw Wilson's new frontcourt mate, Alexis Jennings, on video before Sunday's game.

Jennings scored 21 points and had 10 rebounds - eight of them on the offensive end - taking pressure off the Blue Devils as they tried to stop Wilson in a 72-52 win for the No. 5 Gamecocks (8-1).

"It was sort of sobering watching the film preparing for this game," McCallie said of seeing Jennings play. "She's got tremendous value for South Carolina. She's really stepping up quickly.

The game plan for No. 14 Duke (6-2) was made even simpler after injuries to two senior South Carolina guards. Duke packed it in, doubling Wilson and daring someone else to beat them.

Wilson still got her points. The senior scored 18 and pulled down 11 rebounds to start another double-double streak. The Gamecocks scored 54 of their 72 points in the paint and limited themselves to 12 turnovers, stopping much of Duke's transition game.

"We could have easily said we don't have this person and that person and felt sorry for ourselves. But we didn't," Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley said.

The Blue Devils kept it close in the first quarter and trailed 21-16 after a 3-point play by Lexie Brown. But after Jennings followed a Wilson miss with a score, Duke never got closer than seven the rest of the way.

South Carolina's defense also did its job, holding the normally sure-shooting Blue Devils to just 38 percent (22 of 58) from the field, well below their 46 percent average this season. Duke came in eighth in the nation shooting 44 percent on 3-pointers but made only 1 of 10 from behind the arc.
