Three, It's a Magic Number
The win at Charlotte was the Gamecocks' second-straight overtime win as South Carolina knocked off Mississippi State 72-66 on Feb. 25, 2007. The win was the Gamecocks' first overtime road victory since their 87-81 upset of then-No. 9 Duke on Nov. 25, 2001.
The double-overtime affair at Clemson was just the fourth such game in South Carolina history, and the Gamecocks are just 1-3 in those lengthy outings. The last time South Carolina was involved in a double-overtime game was a 97-91 loss at Georgia on Feb. 13, 2003, when the Gamecocks were ranked 15th in the nation and the Lady Bulldogs were No. 16. South Carolina's lone double-overtime win was a 92-91 decision at then-No. 22 Florida State on Feb. 4, 1991.
South Carolina head coach Dawn Staley is now 10-6 in overtime games in her career. The victory against Charlotte was her first OT win at the Gamecocks' helm but was her third straight victory in extra time. The loss at Clemson was Staley's first result in a double-overtime game.
Bone's stats in her first two games already place her among the program's top freshman. Her 32 points at Clemson are the third-most by a first-year Gamecock, trailing just Sharon Gilmore's school-record 40 at Florida International (Feb. 7, 1983) and Schonna Banner's 37 against Cincinnati (Jan. 9, 1987). With 14 rebounds at Clemson, Bone is the fourth Gamecock freshman to snag that many boards, the most recent being Iva Sliskovic against Charlotte on Dec. 14, 2003. Banner owns the program's freshman record with 15 rebounds against Southern Miss on March 7, 1987. Bone's 12 field goals made match Banner's school record for freshmen (against Cincinnati Jan. 9, 1987), and her 23 field goal attempts match Jordan Jones' Gamecock freshman record, which she set against North Carolina A&T on March 21, 2008.
Twice as Nice
Bone and Valerie Nainima netting 22 points against the 49ers also gave the Gamecocks a pair of players with 20 or more points in a game for the first time since Jordan Jones (31) and Brionna Dickerson (25) combined for the feat in the first round of the WNIT against North Carolina A&T on March 21, 2008.
Bone and La'Keisha Sutton went on to repeat the feat in the next game at Clemson with 32 and 22 points, respectively.
