Reigning SEC Player of the Week Ieasia Walker pitched in eight points on just 2-of-7 shooting for South Carolina, though she did dish out five assists and record four steals.
No. 17 Dayton 72, Richmond 64: RICHMOND, Va. — Olivia Applewhite came off the bench to score 18 points and grab 11 rebounds as Dayton remained unbeaten in the Atlantic 10 with a win over Richmond.
Andrea Hoover scored 16 points and Ally Mallot had 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Flyers (19-1, 7-0), whose first six conference opponents had averaged just 46.5 points.
