For the Oregon State women's basketball team, the 2020-21 season tested their limits, but they fought until the bitter end in San Antonio.

SAN ANTONIO — What started as a close first quarter, with 8-seed Oregon State and 1-seed South Carolina trading baskets, ended in a dominant 59-42 win for the Gamecocks in the second round of the NCAA Women's Basketball Championship tournament.

It was a tough end to the strong second half of the season for Oregon State, as the normally sharp-shooting Beavers couldn't find their rhythm from beyond the arc. They were a 41 percent three-point shooting team entering Tuesday's game but went only 3-for-19 against South Carolina's tough defense.

"[The Gamecocks' defense] was disruptive all day," head coach Scott Rueck said after the game. "We needed shots to go down on the other end of the floor to counter those things and it just wasn't our day shooting the basketball."

Aleah Goodman was smothered on the offensive end, only getting 4-of-15 shots to fall and only 2-of-6 from three-point range. She finished with 10 points and 6 assists. Entering Tuesday's contest, the senior guard was averaging 16.5 points a game and shooting 50 percent from three.

Taylor Jones scored 13 points for Oregon State in the loss, which ended a streak of four straight Sweet 16 appearances.

South Carolina imposed their will from the second quarter on. The Gamecocks led by a point after one quarter but had built a 12-point lead by halftime and were up 53-29 by the start of the fourth. South Carolina, the 2017 national champion, improved to 8-1 in the second round under coach Dawn Staley and will appear in the regional semifinals for the 11th time overall. Aliyah Boston put up 19 points and grabbed 7 rebounds for South Carolina.
