LSU takes the 25-23 lead into halftime. Both teams shot poorly in the 1st half today - 32% for the Gamecocks and 33% for the Tigers. Aliyah Boston leads the Gamecocks with 9 points, 4 rebounds, and 1 block......

This might be the only other time that South Carolina went into the halftime trailing in the game since the NC State loss, and they trailed 21-20 in a low-scoring affair in that game too......

Just now realized - today's game in Baton Rouge is the 1st game of a rough 5-game stretch where 4 games will be on the road. We next play at Mississippi State in Starkville on Thursday, then come home for out lone home game during the next two weeks against Alabama, then go back out on the road at Auburn, then to Storrs, CT to play the Huskies. So this will be a concerning stretch of games in the era of Covid-19.....

Another game where we sputtered offensively, and a team held their own with us down low.  Not sure if it's a focus issue, or running into some mid-season tiredness, but it doesn't bode well for the upcoming stretch Conway references above.  However, the ladies played strong to close out the game - so give them props for that. They are still fighting.

I have no issue with the way they played, when you're in the top 5 in the country everyone comes to play most of the time all night.  I just think an little work needs to be done on the free throw shooting areas. That's all  it's tough playing on the road different GYM, lights different the floor looks different to you a number different reasons. I heard Dawn say the other day that some of the problem is that they use an Nike ball at some locations when Carolina uses an Wilson, that could be the issue just saying
