kamilla cardoso

Led by Kamilla Cardoso’s 16 points and 16 rebounds, No. 1 South Carolina rallied from a seven-point halftime deficit to take down visiting Georgia 70-56 on Sunday in Columbia, S.C., keeping its perfect record intact.

The Gamecocks (25-0, 12-0 Southeastern) were down 35-28 at intermission before outscoring the Bulldogs 22-9 in the third quarter to take control. Cardoso scored 12 of her points in the second half and Chloe Kitts added 10 of her 12 points in the final 20 minutes.

Cardoso added five assists, three blocks and three steals, while Kitts contributed seven rebounds and Te-Hina Paopao finished with 15 points.

Javyn Nicholson scored a career-high 27 points for Georgia (11-14, 2-10). She also had three of the Bulldogs’ 14 steals.

No. 6 North Carolina State 86, Georgia Tech 85 (OT)

Aziaha James dropped 30 points and the host Wolfpack rallied to beat the upset-minded Yellow Jackets in Raleigh, N.C.

River Baldwin scored 16 points on 7-for-9 shooting, Madison Hayes added 15 points and 11 rebounds and Saniya Rivers chipped in 10 points, five rebounds, five assists and three steals for NC State (23-3, 11-3 Atlantic Coast Conference).

The Yellow Jackets (15-12, 6-9) led for most of the fourth quarter before NC State pushed ahead 76-73 on Rivers’ layup and free throw with nine seconds left. Kara Dunn (31 points) buried a last-second 3-pointer to force overtime and later tossed in an improbable 3-pointer from near midcourt down four in overtime, but it wasn’t enough for Georgia Tech.

Tonie Morgan had 23 points and 11 assists and Kayla Blackshear scored 16 points.

No. 12 Virginia Tech 86, No. 18 Louisville 70

Elizabeth Kitley and Georgia Amoore posted double-doubles as the visiting Hokies cruised past the Cardinals.

Kitley scored 26 points on 12-of-16 shooting and grabbed 13 rebounds, while Amoore had 23 points on 9-of-11 shooting and dished 10 assists for Virginia Tech (22-4, 13-2 ACC), which won its ninth straight game. Matilda Ekh added 12 points.

Kiki Jefferson had 19 points to power Louisville (21-6, 10-4), which has lost three of five. Jayda Curry scored 13 points off the bench and Nyla Harris and Nina Rickards finished with 10 points apiece.

No. 19 Syracuse 85, Virginia 79

Dyaisha Fair went for 33 points, Georgia Woolley scored a season-high 26 and the Orange outlasted the host Cavaliers in Charlottesville, Va.

Alaina Rice added 10 points and nine rebounds for Syracuse (22-4, 12-3), which led by 17 points at the half and had to withstand a late charge by Virginia. Fair made critical jumpers at the 2:06 and 1:04 marks to stem the tide and secure Syracuse’s fifth straight win.

Camryn Taylor had 20 points and eight rebounds to lead Virginia (12-13, 4-10). Paris Clark had 16 points and seven boards, Kymora Johnson tallied 15 points, 10 assists and five steals and Sam Brunelle scored 10 points with five assists.
