Cooke has career-high 31, No. 1 South Carolina tops Georgia

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Zia Cooke scored a career-high 31 points and No. 1 South Carolina recovered after trailing throughout the first half to beat Georgia 68-51.

Cooke, who has scored 14 or more points in six consecutive games, helped fill the scoring void for the Gamecocks. Cooke made four of 12 3-pointers and 11 of 13 free throws. No other South Carolina player scored in double figures. South Carolina improved to 14-0 overall and 2-0 in the Southeastern Conference.
