COLUMBIA — South Carolina remained No. 1 in the Associated Press Women's Top 25 on Monday after passing its biggest test of the season last week. 

The Gamecocks topped Mississippi State 81-79 a week ago to keep them unbeaten in the SEC standings, clinching the game when freshman Zia Cooke intercepted the Bulldogs' inbound pass as they tried to set up the last shot. They followed by beating Georgia Sunday. 

The Gamecocks are in their third week of holding the No. 1 ranking. USC (19-1, 7-0 SEC) is at Ole Miss on Thursday before No. 22 Tennessee visits Colonial Life Arena on Sunday.
