No. 5/5 SC used a late 12-3 run to win an 89-77 barnburner over No. 20/24 Kentucky Saturday evening in the SEC Tournament semifinals at Bon Secours Wellness Arena. Now she's the rock of the Gamecocks, who will be going for a third straight league championship. The defense did not allow Mississippi State to score again as the Gamecocks closed the game on a 9-0 run to win by 10. As well as to transfers Kaela Davis and Allisha Gray, who are juniors but will be competing in their first SEC final.

Coates suffered a right ankle injury in the regular-season finale against Kentucky and re-injured the ankle in Saturday's SEC Tournament semifinal victory over Kentucky. The SEC's Sixth Woman of the Year had seven points and six rebounds in the quarter while locking down Wilson defensively.

"Everyone feels that energy and gets as amped up as she is". Once Mississippi State clamped down on Wilson, there wasn't anyone who could provide that second down-low option SC is so used to. The game will be played in Greenville, SC in which heavy Gamecock support will outnumber the Bulldog Faithful. We got out of some tough jams and got some big double plays. "You walk out of that building with a lot of confidence". "We walked out of there thinking we're pretty good".

She's listed as day-to-day for the Gamecocks, who reached the NCAA Final Four two years ago. Earlier in the regular season they played a dramatic game on the campus of SC with the Gamecocks prevaling 64-61. We knew we had a tall task in front of us.

West Ham turned down Chinese offer for Andy Carroll
Slaven Bilic's side may be unbeaten in their last three matches, but have not kept a clean sheet in their last five games. West Ham have improved in recent weeks, with Fonte settling them down in defence and Carroll offering a focal point.

SC came back and outscored the Bulldogs again in the third quarter. Davis and Herbert Harrigan both scored 17 points as the Gamecocks shot 57.1 percent from the field. Kentucky seniors Makayla Epps and Evelyn Akhator looked to put their team on their backs, though, capitalizing on SC miscues to stay within striking distance.

"Our fans really painted a picture of what it's supposed to look like at home and on the road", USC coach Dawn Staley said. "I think we did some really great things in the game late".

It is only fitting that these two teams play for the championship.

The fourth and final period was all Gamecocks. Her high motor demanded South Carolina's immediate attention, and if this continues going into the NCAA Tournament, then United Kingdom will be able to spread the floor more often. This time they have the chance to win it in SC, at Bon Secours Wellness Arena, just about 100 miles from their campus in Columbia. "At the end of the game, we had every opportunity to win the game".

Georgia/Notre Dame game time set
Lindsay Allen had 12 points and 10 assists, breaking the conference's all-time assist record, for the top-seeded Irish (28-3). Louisville has a 20-15 series advantage over Notre Dame and the Cardinals have a 12-3 record in games played in Louisville .

Senior Pachis Roberts led the Lady Bulldogs with 15 points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals.

Mississippi State has rebounded following disappointing losses to Kentucky and Tennessee.

In what was their hardest game of the tournament, SC had to really in the fourth quarter. "To be here and so close to it, it's exciting". Her size also helped counteract the Gamecocks dominance in the post. "It's something we have to go after hard".

Snap Applies Lock-up to IPO Shares
Meanwhile, Snap's chairman Michael Lynton planned to sell nearly 55,000 shares in the offering, bringing in more than $930,000. The blockbuster IPO also signaled a huge payday for the company's co-founders, CEO Evan Spiegel and CTO Bobby Murphy.
