SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - Aliyah Boston had her fourth double-double of the season as top-ranked South Carolina rolled to a 79-36 victory over Cal Poly.

Boston, the reigning AP Player of the Year, had 12 points and 10 rebounds for her 64th career double-double, which is the most among active NCAA players in all divisions.

The Gamecocks (5-0), coming off a 76-71 overtime victory at second-ranked Stanford Sunday, led throughout. Laeticia Amihere was the leading scorer off the bench with 13 points, Zia Cooke added 11 and Ashlyn Watkins had 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Annika Shah led Cal Poly with eight points, all in the fourth quarter. The Mustangs were 8 of 55 from the field before making four of their last five.

South Carolina, which was 39 of 63 from the field, scored the first 14 points and made six of its first nine shots before Natalia Ackerman's layup with 31 seconds remaining got Cal Poly on the scoreboard.

The Mustangs played well in the second quarter and closed the first half with a 7-2 run to trail 33-17 at halftime. But the Gamecocks began the third quarter with a 15-4 run that included five points from Cooke and four by Boston.

South Carolina had an 8-minute stretch in the third and fourth quarters where it scored 24 straight points.

THE TAKEAWAY

South Carolina: The only thing that Coach Dawn Staley might not be happy about is free throws, where the Gamecocks were 4 of 12.

Cal Poly: The Mustangs have had a tough non-conference stretch to start the season. Besides hosting the nation's top-ranked team, they have had road games against Stanford and UCLA.
