COLUMBIA，南卡罗（AP） – 恩 – 斯塔利不认为南卡罗来纳州的第一次四强将是其最后一次。 She’s already planning on how to get back next season.
南卡罗来纳州的标志性赛季结束周日晚在佛罗里达州坦帕的全国半决赛一个66-65不敌巴黎圣母院。 Staley had set an NCAA Tournament title as her team’s goal since last April. She’s not shying away from that in 2016.
“”前途是光明的。 I’m encouraged,” Staley said. ”The loss is disappointing and it hurts. But when you look at some of our young players, they’ve grown up. They’ve got a year under their belts and I think they understand what it takes to get there.”
南卡罗来纳州（34-3）赢得了常规赛和锦标赛冠军，在东南会议。 The 34 wins were a program record.
它看起来好像斗鸡挖了自己所有的出路了12点下半年赤字时Aleighsa韦尔奇的篮子给了他们第一个也是唯一领先，65-64，与1:12去。 But unlike late NCAA victories over North Carolina and Florida State last weekend, the Gamecocks could not hold on.
想想错过机会开车斯特利坚果。 She eased her mood a bit by looking toward next season’s lineup. The Gamecocks lose two senior starters in 6-foot-4 Elem Ibiam and 6-foot Welch, the team’s unquestioned leader.
这两大前场点，最有可能会去南卡罗来纳州的超级替补 – 6-4 ALAINA科茨和6-5 A’ja威尔逊。 Coates and Wilson were the backbone of a bench that tied or outscored the starters in 22 of 37 games this season.
科茨带领球队12场双位数的得分和篮板。 Wilson, the SEC’s freshman of the year, had 20 points and nine rebounds in the Notre Dame loss.
雄斗鸡下车到每个他们过去三年NCAA锦标赛场比赛开始缓慢，包括落后巴黎圣母院17-5。 Part of that comes from having Wilson and Coates – the second- and third leading scorers this season – on the bench waiting to come in.
这包括蒂凡尼·米切尔，在今年的两届卫冕SEC球员谁将会是一个高级明年秋天。 Staley thinks Mitchell has to become the kind of vocal leader Welch was the past few seasons.
“”我觉得天空的极限，“”她说。 ”I think it’s about still progressing and still going up.”
