The Gamecocks have built a reputation for taking command of games right from the opening tipoff. South Carolina has out-scored opponents in the first quarter by an average of 11.5 points this season, including a 12.0 average in SEC games. The number comes courtesy of both the Gamecocks' highest scoring average (23.0) and field goal percentage (.504) as well as the opponents' lowest scoring average (11.5) and field goal percentage (.288). South Carolina's high-octance offense has thrived in SEC play, leading the league with 89.0 point per game, compared to 80.9 points per non-conference game. Tyasha Harris was named espnW National Player of the Week for her efforts in a pair of Gamecock victories last week. The senior has found her scoring and distributing balance, and her command of the team and the game are why she is considered among the top point guards in the nation. In the last five games, Harris has averaged 14.0 points and 5.3 assists with a 3.6 assist-to-turnover radio and has shot 45.5 percent from 3-point range. Forward Aliyah Boston put herself at the top of the national freshman of the year conversation from the start of the season when she debuted with a triple-double.
