The Gamecocks used their size to overwhelm Coker 100-25 in an exhibition game Sunday at Colonial Life Arena. Freshman guard/forward A’ja Wilson posted a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds, both team highs.
South Carolina’s regular-season opener is on Sat., Nov. 15, against Southern Cal. Tipoff at Colonial Life Arena is set for 7 p.m.
