The Gamecocks women's basketball team upset the 22nd ranked Vanderbilt Commodores 73-70 Sunday in the regular season finale for both teams.
Kelsey Bone scored 12 points giving the Gamecocks (14-14, 7-9 SEC) the lead for good with 1:07 left to play. Valerie Nainima led the Gamecocks with 23 points. Ieasia Walker had 18 points and hit 3 out of 4 free throws in the game's closing minutes to seal the win.
The Lady Gamecocks head to the SEC Tournament Thursday for a first-round game. Their record won't get them into the NCAA tournament so they'll have to win the conference tourney to get in.
