South Carolina women’s basketball assistant coach Nikki McCray-Penson was mentioned as a potential candidate for Vanderbilt’s open head coach position in a report from The Tennesseean on Thursday. McCray-Penson said that she has not been contacted by the Commodores or anyone else.
There won’t be signs hanging at practice or a photo of the final scoreboard in the locker room. The South Carolina’s women’s basketball team’s season ended with a thud against Syracuse in the Sweet 16, but that’s the end of it. Dawn Staley won’t rehash the past.
The South Carolina women’s basketball team has no plans to abdicate a throne built on three straight SEC regular-season championships and a sterling 45-3 three-year conference record. They’ll just look a little different next season.
South Carolina head women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley announced Victoria Patrick (Orlando, Fla.) signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Gamecocks. Ranked the No. 25 guard in the class, Patrick is a two-time state champion out of Edgewater High School and averaged 15.8 points as a senior.
South Carolina’s women’s basketball team was dominant all season but ended on a sour note. Tiffany Mitchell, Asia Dozier and Khadijah Sessions depart, but Dawn Staley’s team will carry on with anchors such as A’ja Wilson and Alaina Coates.
