      Lady Gamecocks roll to first round NCAA win

      Lady Gamecocks have advanced to round two against Kansas on Monday.


      Ashley Brunner had 15 points and 11 rebounds to lead No. 4 seed South Carolina to a 74-52 victory over South Dakota State in the opening round of the NCAA tournament on Saturday.


      The Gamecocks (25-7), who won a school-record 11 Southeastern Conference games this season, used their superior athleticism and stout defense to make quick work of the 13th-seeded Jackrabbits (25-8), the Summit League regular season and tournament champs.


      They'll face Kansas on Monday at 9:30 p.m. in their quest to reach the round of 16 for the second straight year under coach Dawn Staley, who led Virginia to three Final Fours as a player. The South Carolina-Kansas game will be broadcast on ESPN2.


      Khadijah Sessions from Myrtle Beach High finished with five points for the Lady Gamecocks.
