South Carolina wins women's NCAA championship

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.

SC won the NCAA women's basketball national championship with a 67-55 victory over Mississippi State on Sunday afternoon in Dallas.

During a break in the first half of the Mississippi State-South Carolina title game Sunday night, the players were introduced along with some coaches and staff members. We haven't lost in a while, but I understand it.

The lead had expanded to 45-31 in favor of the Gamecocks with 5:39 left in the third quarter when freshman guard Tyasha Harris converted a three-point play. The Bulldogs used a 9-0 run to get within four points at 48-44 and 54-50, but no closer.

"I knew I had to be aggressive coming out against Mississippi State because I knew they were going to be aggressive", said Wilson, who was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Year.

She played for it three times at Virginia. Right now, now I see why our coaches always wanted more from us. "We've had two knockdown, drag-outs with them".


SC went on a 12-2 run to put the game away, beating Mississippi State for the third time this season.

Jazzmun Holmes gave the Bulldogs a 14-12 lead with 2:46 left in the first quarter, but the Gamecocks scored the next nine. Cuevas-Moore did a fantastic job of denying the ball from William, noticeably taking William out of her game.

Wilson led a similar sequence later in the fourth that put the game away, blocking another shot and scoring six straight SC points.

The first five minutes of the final period went back and forth.

Wilson admitted to being frustrated by Stanford's physical play, and Mississippi State will try to frustrate USC, as well.

Once half-time was reached, SC was dominating MS with a score of 36-26. "Obviously we've had hard times dealing with them this season and today was no different". She was joined by teammate Allisha Gray.


From an offensive standpoint, we had to attack the paint.

Auriemma says it "takes a while getting used to watching it, but two good teams and two teams that deserve to be playing tonight".

Win its win on Sunday, South Carolina became the fifth-straight team to have defeated Stanford in the national semifinal and gone on to win the national title.

Then came the showdown with CT, the No. 1 overall seed and four-time defending champion.

Mississippi State finished the year 34-5 overall. "That is one heck of a basketball team, the greatest of all-time".

Gamecocks women faced Bully women on Sunday evening in Dallas for the National Championship title. Kaela Davis and Doniyah Cliney each have four.


Junior guard Victoria Vivians is another important part of this team. SC will need production from Davis against the Bulldogs, but it doesn't just have to be scoring.
