Dawn Staley has “utmost confidence” in Bree Hall’s ability to knock down shots.  Hall richly rewarded that faith with a career-high 18 points and four 3-pointers in No. 1 South Carolina’s 65-52 victory over Alabama on Sunday. Gamecocks star Aliyah Boston had 16 points and 12 rebounds for her 14th double-double of the season.  Despite the Tigers’ strong second-half performance, the No. 15/19 North Carolina Tarheels were victorious in Littlejohn Coliseum on Sunday evening. The loss moves Clemson to 13-10 and 4-7 in ACC play, and North Carolina improves to 16-5 and 7-3 in ACC play.
