I’ve never had any doubt about the different strengths of the women in my life, but it sure has been fun watching a team of young women who have proven their physical strength, endurance, and mental toughness to the many fans who have had the opportunity to see them in person or have watched them on television during the 2019 – 2020 NCAA women’s basketball season. The University of South Carolina women’s basketball team has been rated Number One in the nation for the past 9 weeks. Last week they finished their regular SEC season with a perfect 16 – 0 to place first in the conference. This past weekend at Bon Secours Arena in Greenville, they won the annual SEC tournament championship as well.
If strong is the new pretty, these young women are gorgeous!
Senior leadership we will miss next year:
Kiki Herbert Harrigan and Ty Harris
Mad Kiki and Chill Ty – you girls have been the best – thanks for your guts and glory!
Zia Cooke, Victaria Saxton, Destanni Henderson, Aliyah Boston
They will be back – and they’re fierce!
Winning is the most fun!
Slo, Pretty, Gamecock G,
with outstanding player Lele Grissett who had a great season!
Hey, Ref, don’t mess with my team!
The women who make our Gamecock basketball go round:
Head Coach Dawn Staley and Associate Head Coach Lisa Boyer
Huge congratulations to Coach Staley and the Gamecock women’s basketball program for a wonderful regular season. As Coach says to her players, don’t flinch now. Onward.
