STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Aleighsa Welch led No. 18 South Carolina with 16 points and seven rebounds as the Gamecocks rolled over Mississippi State 60-46 Sunday for their first Southeastern Conference victory of the year.

Welch was 5 of 9 shooting and made 6 of 8 from the foul line. Sancheon White added 11 points as nine different players scored for South Carolina (13-2, 1-1), which dropped its SEC opener to No. 12 Tennessee Jan. 3.

The Gamecocks shot 35.9% (14 of 39) from the floor and missed each of their two 3-point attempts, but won the rebound battle 40-30 and drained 32 of 50 free-throw attempts.

Kendra Grant led Mississippi State (8-7, 0-2) with 15 points. Jerica James added 14.
