Wilson, Gray lead No. 5 SC past Georgia in SEC quarterfinals
Kaela Davis had 23 points and A'ja Wilson scored seven of her 15 points in the fourth quarter to send No. 5 SC to its third straight SEC Tournament crown with a 59-49 victory over No. 6 Mississippi State on Sunday.
SC guard Kaela Davis (3) and teammate A'ja Wilson (22) react to a play in the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Mississippi State during the Southeastern Conference tournament on Sunday, March 5, 2017, in Greenville, S.C. We just have to come out and play the way we've been playing.
It's part of what the program has gained over the past five years, coach Dawn Staley said, and the Gamecocks are always looking for more. "They were better than we were today". But she left that game hurting, and then didn't play in the SEC tournament opener against Georgia on Friday.
It was a great start by the Gamecocks, hitting their first seven shots from the floor.
The Gamecocks (27-4) entered the final period down 45-40 when Davis began the comeback with a 3-pointer and Wilson scored the next five points to put SC up for good. "For her to put herself in that position where everybody huddles around her and feeds off her energy, it's really cool for us". The USC women's basketball team was greeted by large factions of garnet in Jacksonville, Florida and Little Rock, Arkansas during their previous two Southeastern Conference Tournament championship runs.
Tennessee is the only other team that has won the SEC tourney title three times in a row, and the Lady Vols did it twice (1998-2000, 2010-12). Georgia found its footing after getting to the free throw line a few times midway through the period, but the Gamecocks offense was on full display.

SC put together a 16-1 run to get back into the game, cutting the lead to 54-48 with 10:48 left. "At the end of the game, we had every opportunity to win the game".
They beat Tennessee for the 2015 SEC title, and Mississippi State past year.
However, Mississippi State couldn't overcome a poor performance from deep.
Teaira McCowan led the way for the Bulldogs with 15 points.
"This is one of the things you work for all season", said Davis, who spent her first two seasons in the ACC at Georgia Tech. "It's something we have to go after hard".
