COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - South Carolina women's basketball coach Dawn Staley may not only be immortalized as a national championship coach, she'll also be immortalized in the City of Columbia.

Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin named a portion of the street in front of Colonial Life Arena "Dawn Staley Way."

Staley was surprised at the gesture.

"They gave me a street," she said. "My cup runneth over."

The coach just took her team to the national championship game in Dallas, TX and came away champions.
