Dawn Staley says she’ll be sharing pieces of the championship net with her fellow Black coaches.  The  Gamecocks coach did the same thing back in 2017 after winning her first title with the team.  After honoring women’s basketball coaches the first time around, Staley says this time she’ll honor coaches on the men’s side who “don’t get opportunities“, and journalists who don’t get recognition.

The South Carolina Gamecocks beat UConn Huskies, 64-49, in the 2022 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament National Championship game at Target Center on April 03, 2022 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
