COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) A'ja Wilson scored 17 points, Alaina Coates had another double-double and No. 2 South Carolina used its inside game to move to 20-0 for a second straight season, pounding Mississippi 81-62 on Thursday night.

The 6-foot-5 Wilson and 6-4 Coates were mostly unstoppable for the Gamecocks (8-0 Southeastern Conference), who won their seventh in row over Ole Miss (10-10, 2-5) in easy fashion.

Tiffany Mitchell had 15 points and while Coates finished with 13 points and 14 rebounds, her 10th game this season with double figure points and rebounds.

South Carolina took care of things early, breaking on top 19-7 in the opening quarter and kept the lead in double digits for much of the rest of the game.

Shandricka Sessom had 26 points, Mississippi's only player in double figures.
