In two complementary measurements, a cubelike array of 6 Euroball-Cluster germanium detectors and a total-absorption [Formula Presented]-spectrometer were used to investigate the [Formula Presented] decay of [Formula Presented], a three proton-hole nucleus with respect to the [Formula Presented] core. The half-life and [Formula Presented] value of the decay of the [Formula Presented] ground state of [Formula Presented] were determined to be 25.9(4) s and 6.98(11) MeV, respectively. A total of 603 [Formula Presented] rays (578 new) was observed, and 151 levels (132 new) in [Formula Presented] have been identified. An interesting [Formula Presented]-delayed [Formula Presented] cascade was observed, which comprises 6 [Formula Presented]-transitions with a deexcitation pattern involving an initial increase of the level spin. The Gamow-Teller (GT) [Formula Presented]-decay strength distributions from the two measurements reveal a large GT resonance around 4 MeV with a width of about 1.8 MeV. The hindrance factor for the total GT strength, summed from the ground state up to 6 MeV excitation energy in [Formula Presented], amounts to 4.3(6) with reference to a shell-model prediction. This factor is discussed in comparison with a core polarization and a Monte Carlo shell-model calculation.
