Have hoop dreams? Tryouts for the new women's pro team coming soon

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - As we saw this past March, Columbia has quickly become a basketball town.

Now the basketball scene in the capitol city is getting bigger with the addition of a professional women's team this year - and the team is looking for some local talent to fill the roster.
