South Carolina, which upset No. 12 seed Auburn and No. 5 seed Arkansas to reach the quarterfinals, missed its first eight shots and 12 of its first 13 field goal tries while falling behind 12-2 in the first nine minutes.

Tennessee stretched its lead to 18 points with a 15-7 run to start the second half, holding the Gamecocks to just 3-of-15 shooting during the stretch. South Carolina never got closer than 12 points the rest of the way.
