COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Ashley Bruner scored 16 points and Aleighsa Welch and Ieasia Walker added 14 apiece as No. 14 South Carolina defeated Florida 67-56 Sunday.

The Gamecocks (23-6, 11-5) set a school record for Southeastern Conference victories in a season and tied their program record for regular-season wins.

Khadijah Sessions' 3-pointer started a 9-2 run that gave the Gamecocks a 53-44 lead with 6:32 remaining. They led 61-49 with 3:41 left after a 3-point play and another free throw by Welch and a jumper by Bruner.

Welch also had 10 rebounds for her ninth double-double of the season, and Walker tied her career high with eight assists.

Sydney Moss scored 16 points and 10 rebounds to pace the Gators (17-13, 6-10). Jaterra Bonds added 12 points before fouling out and Jennifer George had 10 points and blocked four shots.

Both teams will begin play Thursday at the SEC tournament in Duluth, Ga.
