COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Elem Ibiam scored 18 points and No. 8 South Carolina bounced back from its first Southeastern Conference loss to blow past Alabama 77-51 on Sunday.

The Gamecocks (17-2, 5-1 SEC) had been at the top of the SEC until falling in overtime at Texas A&M on Thursday night. Ibiam and her teammates on the front line made sure that wouldn't happen again as they won their eighth straight game over the Crimson Tide (8-10, 1-4).

The 6-foot-4 Ibiam made 7 of 11 shots and added seven rebounds and two blocks. Six-foot Aleighsa Welch had 12 points and 10 boards, while 6-4 freshman Alaina Coates had 10 points and nine rebounds.

Alabama fell behind by double digits eight minutes in and could never close the gap. The Gamecocks eventually led 60-31 on Coates foul shots with 13 minutes to go.

Ashley Williams had 16 points to lead the Crimson Tide.
