COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - South Carolina Women’s basketball forward Laeticia Amihere has officially declared for the 2023 WNBA draft.

She made her announcement on social media Tuesday afternoon:

During her four years at the University of South Carolina, Amihere was a force. She averaged 6 points, 4 rebounds, 1 block, and 1 assist per game throughout her tenure as a Gamecock.
