Dawn Staley finally lifted the trophy and paraded the court in the South Carolina Gamecocks first National Championship. A 67-55 victory over the Mississippi State Bulldogs brought the Lady Gamecocks the W in Dallas late Sunday evening.
The NCAA championship trophy is one Coach Staley has been in pursuit of long before she became “coach.” As a player Staley found herself in the Final Four three times at Virginia, but never won. Under her leadership she also led the Gamecocks to the national semifinals two years ago before losing to Notre Dame. But with tonight’s buzzer, that all changes.
The NCAA Championship trophy is headed to the midlands! #GoCocks
