No. 4 South Carolina seeking outright SEC title

By PETE IACOBELLI

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - No. 4 South Carolina is looking to launch its biggest celebration of the year Thursday night when it takes on Georgia.

The Gamecocks (25-2, 13-1 SEC) can wrap up the outright Southeastern Conference championship with a victory and finish 16-0 at home.

Coach Dawn Staley says her players' focus has been as even-keeled as always, despite the good feelings that followed clinching a share of the SEC crown Sunday after 17th-ranked Texas A&M lost to No. 12 Kentucky.

Should the Gamecocks come up short against Georgia (18-9, 6-8), they'll have a final chance to claim the title outright at No. 10 Tennessee on Sunday.

South Carolina is the league's only one-loss team. Texas A&M and Tennessee have three SEC losses each.
