COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Dawn Staley has a new challenge ahead after leading South Carolina to its first Final Four - finding the right fit in a roster full of players eager for more playing time.
Staley said Thursday that the Gamecocks are seeing their hard work in recruiting the past few years continue to pay off with the decisions of two top-flight Atlantic Coast Conference players to finish their careers at South Carolina.
Virginia's Sarah Imobvioh averaged double-digit rebounds last year to lead the ACC, while Georgia Tech guard Kaela Davis was third in the league at 19.2 points a game.
The two must blend with a returning roster that includes a two-time Southeastern Conference player of the year and four sophomores or freshmen who were McDonald's All-Americans.
