Transfer joins Gamecocks
COLUMBIA -- South Carolina head women's basketball coach Dawn Staley announced that Destiny Littleton (La Jolla, Calif./The Bishop's School) signed a financial aid agreement to attend the University and play for the Gamecocks. Littleton, who played the last two seasons at Texas, has two years of eligibility.
"Adding Destiny to our Gamecock family is a much-needed boost in our backcourt," Staley said. "She is a big guard who is a prolific scorer. Her offensive skill set will complement and strengthen our backcourt. She's a proven winner, and the FAMs will enjoy the passion she will bring to Colonial Life Arena."
USC golfers in 7th at NCAA regional
PULLMAN, Wash. - No. 17 South Carolina is in seventh place, four shots back of the NCAA Championship cutline after two rounds of the NCAA Pullman Regional. The Gamecocks posted a 3-under round of 277 on Tuesday led by senior Scott Stevens, who fired a 4-under 66.
"It was a frustrating round to watch from my perspective," said head coach Bill McDonald. "We made numerous mistakes from good positions most of the day and we managed to make a pretty easy golf course look difficult. Scott played well and Caleb Proveaux hung in there, but we're going to need a solid effort from all five tomorrow."
Carolina heads into Wednesday with four shots off the pace for the NCAA Championship as the top-five teams advance to Fayetteville next week.
