COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Tiffany Mitchell scored 12 points to lead No. 19 South Carolina to an easy 66-44 victory over Western Carolina Saturday night.

Ieasia Walker had nine points for South Carolina (12-2), and her five blocks pushed her over the 200 mark for her career, the 13th Gamecocks player to reach that milestone.

Makensey Campbell and Lindsay Simpson scored nine points apiece for the Catamounts (3-9), who have lost five games in a row.

South Carolina shot 50% from the field (28 of 56) and 66.7% on 3-pointers (6 of 9). The Gamecocks won the turnover battle with 10 to the Catamounts' 20.

The only suspect statistic from South Carolina was the 4 of 14 shooting from the line.

The Gamecocks led 29-18 at halftime, but with 13:38 left in the second, the advantage was 47-27.

South Carolina's only loss came against No. 1 Stanford, 53-49, on Dec. 19.
