Dawn Staley has been nominated for induction into the U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame both as an individual and as a member of the 1996 Women's Basketball gold medal team. The '96 team also included Gamecock assistant coach Nikki McCray. Fan votes will count toward the final voting tallies. Fans can vote once per day through April 9, 2012. Let's help get Coach Staley this much-deserved honor!

Thank you to all the fans who came out to today's send-off as women's basketball left Columbia to head to Fresno for their Sweet Sixteen match-up with Stanford.


If the women's basketball team upsets Stanford on Saturday, it would be head coach Dawn Staley's first win over her former USA Basketball head coach Tara VanDerveer, who coached both Staley and assistant coach Nikki McCray in the Olympics.

A win would also give the Gamecocks 26 victories on the season, the most for the program since the 1979-80 squad won a school-record 30 games en route to the AIAW Final Four.


Everyone knows we're a sucker for Gamecock babies and kids. Today's photo is from Chelsea of her six-month-old Gamecock fan, Isaiah, sporting his new hat and polo!
