PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — Aliyah Boston had 22 points and 15 rebounds to help No. 1 South Carolina beat second-ranked UConn 73-57 to win the inaugural Battle 4 Atlantis tournament championship.

The Gamecocks wouldn’t let the Huskies beat them in the Bahamas, outscoring them 16-3 in the final quarter. Paige Bueckers had 19 points to lead UConn, which fell to 3-1.
