COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Tiffany Mitchell scored 19 points to lead red-hot No. 12 South Carolina to a 79-27 win over North Carolina Central on Monday, giving coach Dawn Staley her 100th win early in her sixth season.

The Gamecocks (8-0) shot 58.5 percent. Mitchell was 7-9, backup Alaina Coates was 7 of 8 for 15 points and Aleighsa Welch was 6-6 for 13 points.

Raquel Davis had 14 points for the Bulldogs (4-3). NC Central shot just 16 percent (8-50), including 1-14 from 3-point range.

Staley is only the seventh head coach in South Carolina's 40 years of playing women's basketball and the fourth to win at least 100 games.

South Carolina made short work of the Bulldogs, shooting 69.2 percent while rolling to a 46-15 halftime lead. The Gamecocks scored the first five points and then went on a 15-0 run for a 26-4 lead at the 8:18 mark.
