 Aliyah Boston, South Carolina

Boston, posted her 16th-straight double-double against a ranked opponent with 14 points and 13 rebounds at #2/2 Stanford.

In overtime, Boston twice scored inside to give the Gamecocks leads at 68-67 and 70-69, then passed out of a double-team on the baseline to find Bree Hall for a 3-pointer that made it a four-point game with 41 seconds to play.
