Good read.

 

Dawn Staley was furniture shopping to get away from the news cycle, but her phone wouldn’t
stop ringing. Parents were texting her worried about their daughters
returning to Columbia, South Carolina, after spring break amid the
coronavirus outbreak
. The NBA had suspended its season, and all eyes were on the NCAA.


“I’m looking at Twitter and I’m just seeing the things simmering,” Staley said, “and then it gets to a boil.”


Staley prepped to quell the fears of her program, then the news came:


“I saw that the NCAA canceled everything.”


The 2019-20 women’s college basketball season was supposed
to end with South Carolina joining women’s basketball elite. It was
supposed to end with the program showing its 2017 national championship
wasn’t a fluke. It was supposed to end with Staley changing the
narrative and proving her team was worthy of the No. 1 ranking.

If UCONN had finished No 1 at the end of the season, the NCAA would have already crowned them Champions.

 

It's time we were crowned.

I agree. Our Lady Gamecocks also need to get a National Championship #1 ranking ring also. This was a HISTORIC season for this team.
