COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The top-ranked South Carolina women picked up where they left off last season, blowing past Charleston 119-38 in the season opener for their 27th straight victory.
Victaria Saxton had 19 points and 12 rebounds to lead seven players in double figures including four with double-doubles. It was the team's 10th consecutive win over Charleston.
Taylor Williams led the Cougars with nine points. The game was played before roughly 3,500 people, about a quarter of the crowd South Carolina averaged last season.
