GW sophomore Abigail Hatter hit an efficient .333 with eight kills in 21 attacks while commiting just one error with a block solo and two block assists in the two-hour, 10-minute match.
The Gamecocks (6-6) clinched second place in the tournament after losing to No. 17 Santa Clara, 3-2, on Thursday evening.
