SC women's basketball team wins national title

Gonzaga guard Nigel Williams-Goss said the injury he suffered in the Bulldogs' national title game loss to North Carolina was a sprained ankle, and it occurred one game after he injured the same ankle in Saturday's Final Four win over SC. Frank Martin may have made an impact at the men's Final Four, but Staley is the one taking a championship net back to SC.

Seven members of the gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic women's basketball team have been honored at the NCAA women's championship game. First, South Carolina became an SEC power, and two years ago, advanced to their first-ever Final Four.

Finally, Staley's trophy collection is complete.

Shortly after her final basket Wilson and the rest of the starters were taken out of the game with the Gamecocks leading by 12 and only 46 seconds remaining.

"You know what? When stuff like this happens, it kind of makes me shake my head and go, 'You know how many times this could have happened and it didn't happen?'" Auriemma said. "I'm so happy we could cut down the nets".

The nine-time Associated Press coach of the year says "you kind of forget that there's another side to it" after winning four straight. "Something I wanted to do".

Davis, who was 2 of 15 in a semifinal win over Stanford, missed eight of her first 10 against the Bulldogs before the late shot in the third.

"They're a team that defends real well, but they're also a team that fouls a lot", Staley said. "I think the way we attacked the rim and rebounded and defended tonight got us the win".

The Gamecocks beat Mississippi State 67-55 in Dallas on Sunday afternoon, completing the run through the postseason all the way to the crown in Dawn Staley's ninth season.

Rays' Dickerson gets 1st hit, run of new major league season
With two outs and the bases loaded, Grichuk lined a 1-2 pitch into the gap in left-center for his second career game-ending hit. The Yankees won 11 of 19 games against the Rays in 2016, though Tampa Bay won five of the nine meetings at Tropicana Field.

SC reached the Final Four in both men's and women's basketball, marking just the 13th time in NCAA history and the third time in SEC record books that a program has accomplished that feat.

The champion Gamecocks return Wilson, fellow juniors Allisha Gray and Kaela Davis, and point guard Bianca Cuevas-Moore next season.

A'ja Wilson was the star in the game, scoring 23 points with 10 rebounds and four blocks in the win.

For Mississippi State, Victoria Vivians led with 12 points and four rebounds.

The second quarter saw a subtle increase in control from the Gamecocks. "I just want her to keep it going". Instead, Schaefer turned to sophomore Jazzmun Holmes in the game's final quarter.

Shockingly, South Carolina didn't hit a single three-pointer but generally avoided outside shots. We played on the last day.

Gamecock faithful stayed well after the nets came down to cheer and celebrate the new national champions. Then, South Carolina began to find their rhythm with a 7-2 run two-and-a-half minutes in. "Today doesn't define us - this team had one heck of a year". Wilson went on to score her team's next four points and secure the victory. She still is my pride and joy, and she helped me through tough times. "I'm honored to wear this state across my chest".

Two days earlier, the Bulldogs stunned four-time defending national champion CT - which was riding a 111-game winning streak that included multiple wins over Staley's teams. As an NCAA coach at Temple and USC, Staley has reached the NCAA tournament 12 times in 17 years, reaching at least the Sweet 16 five times since she joined the Gamecocks in 2011. Staley emptied her bench with less than a minute left and Wilson left with tears of joy. SC became the first SEC team to win a National Championship since Tennessee in 2008. I just didn't have a really good matchup on the ball today.
