South Carolina wins its first na­tional ti­tle

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

DALLAS | A’ja Wil­son scored 23 points to help coach Dawn Sta­ley and South Carolina win their first na­tional cham­pi­onship with a 67-55 vic­tory over Mis­sis­sippi State on Sun­day night.

Sta­ley made the Fi­nal Four three times as a player at Vir­ginia but never won. She also led the Game­cocks to the na­tional semi­fi­nals two years ago be­fore los­ing to Notre Dame.

The vic­tory in front of a sell­out crowd came one day after the Game­cocks men’s bas­ket­ball team lost in the Fi­nal Four in Phoenix.

Mis­sis­sippi State had all the mo­men­tum on its side after a shock­ing win over UConn on Fri­day night that ended the Huskies’ record 111-game win­ning streak.
