COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — LeLe Grissett scored a season-high 14 points, Aliyah Boston is up to 12 straight games with a double-double, and No. 1 South Carolina got its 14th consecutive win over Vanderbilt in a 85-30 victory Monday night.

Grissett, a fifth-year senior, made her first start of the season in place of injured Zia Cooke and made a quick impact for the Gamecocks (18-1, 6-1 Southeastern Conference). Boston finished with 11 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks.

Brinae Alexander had 10 points to lead the Commodores (10-10, 1-5), who were held to their lowest point total of the season.

Behind Grissett’s seven first-quarter points, South Carolina led 19-8 after 10 minutes and 42-15 by halftime.

The only drama on Monday was whether Boston, the 6-foot-5 All-American who had just six points and four rebounds at the break, would continue her dominating run.
