Destanni Henderson scored 19 points and Aliyah Boston added 12 points, 13 rebounds and six blocks as No. 1 South Carolina beat LSU 66-59 on Sunday for its 31st straight Southeastern Conference victory.

The SEC regular-season win was the 150th in Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley's 12 seasons. She tied Texas A&M coach Gary Blair for the most league wins among active coaches.

The No. 1/3 Gamecocks (17-2, 12-0 SEC) head to Rocky Top for a clash with No. 16/19 Tennessee on Thursday. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. on the SEC Network.
