COLUMBIA, S.C.(AP) -- LaceDarius Dunn had 21 points, Ekpe Udoh added a career high 20 rebounds and Baylor won its seventh straight with a 85-74 victory at undermanned South Carolina on Saturday.

The Bears (11-1) used an 18-2 run that spanned both halves to take control and held on as the Gamecocks (8-5) cut a 17-point lead to 72-63 on Devan Downey's 3-pointer with 3 minutes left.

Udoh also had 12 points for his seventh double-double this season.

Baylor hadn't won seven in a row since starting the 2000-01 season 12-0 under disgraced former coach Dave Bliss.

It was South Carolina's first game since coach Darrin Horn dismissed one-time starting forward Mike Holmes for team violations.

Gamecocks leading scorer Devan Downey had 20 points on 6 of 25 shooting.
