Dawn Staley's South Carolina basketball team is 17-0 and the country's only undefeated squad after whipping up on the Texas A&M Aggies in College Station. The Gamecocks followed up their 62-point shellacking of the 'Cats with a 35-point beatdown of the Aggies. They have now won their 5 SEC games by an average of 32.6 points per game and have won them all by at least 19 points.

Against the Aggies, South Carolina started hot, scoring the game's first 15 points before allowing A&M to get on the scoreboard. The game was dominated by the Gamecocks' inside presence (double-doubles from Kamilla Cardoso and Chloe Kitts, a 42-29 rebounding win, and scoring 56 points in the paint compared to just 20 from the Aggies).

While Cardoso and Kitts were excellent as starters, MiLaysia Fulwiley and Sania Feagin carried the bench unit with 21 points and 15 points, respectively. 21 set a new career-high for Fulwiley, and 15 tied the best number Feagin has ever scored.

The Gamecocks, like they have been all season, were excellent on both offense and defense. They shot an absurd 67%/54%/82% for the game, and they held Texas A&M to 30% from the field and 23% from the perimeter. Without their top-2 scorers (Endiyah Rogers and Sahara Jones), the Aggies scored just 26 points on 8-40 shooting.

It was yet another dominating effort from Dawn Staley's group on Sunday, one that they hope will translate to Thursday's College GameDay matchup with defending national champions LSU.
