Mitchell keeps South Carolina unbeaten in SEC play

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Tiffany Mitchell scored 18 points to lead No. 10 South Carolina to a 72-66 comeback victory over Auburn on Sunday.

Mitchell had six steals for South Carolina (16-1, 3-0 SEC), which entered the game ranked No. 3 nationally in scoring defense. Freshman center Alaina Coates scored all 14 of her points in the first half and shot 4-for-5 from the field in the victory.

Auburn (10-6, 1-2) led by as many as 12 points in the first half before a late rally from the Gamecocks. South Carolina took its first lead of the game within in the first minute of the second half on an Asia Dozier 3-pointer.

After posting a season-low seven points against Vanderbilt last Thursday, Auburn senior forward Tyrese Tanner led the Tigers with 16 points. Auburn was held to just 11-of-31 shooting in the second half.
