COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Jamie Nared had a career-high 27 points, including two clutch free throws with 5.9 seconds left, and Tennessee stopped No. 4 South Carolina’s 30-game home win streak in the Southeastern Conference with a 76-74 victory Monday night.

Nared was fouled after the Gamecocks (18-2, 8-1) rallied from 11 points down in the final six minutes to tie the game at 74 on Bianca Cuevas-Moore’s 3-pointer with 14.7 seconds left. Tyasha Harris was called for guarding Nared too closely and the junior calmly made both foul shots.

Cuevas-Moore’s 3-point try in the final seconds bounced away, and the Lady Vols (14-7, 5-3) celebrated their third top-10 victory this season. Nared also hit a tiebreaking jumper as Tennessee wiped out a 15-point Notre Dame lead in a 71-69 victory on Jan. 16.

Diamond DeShields had 21 points for Tennessee. Cuevas-Moore led the Gamecocks with 18 points.

MISSOURI 73, No. 25 KENTUCKY 67

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Sierra Michaelis scored 19 points, Cierra Porter had 17 and Missouri earned its fifth straight victory.

Amber Smith added 15 points for Missouri, and Sophie Cunningham scored 14.
