SOUTH CAROLINA: All-America forward Aliyah Boston is headed to the WNBA.

The 6-foot-5 Boston, long considered the No. 1 overall pick if she chose to go pro, released a post on social media where she thanked her family, coaches, teammates and South Carolina fans. Her announcement came a day after her team’s bid for an undefeated season and a second straight NCAA Tournament title ended with a 77-73 loss to Iowa in the national semifinals.

Boston, a senior, could have played an additional year because of COVID-19.

Gamecocks Coach Dawn Staley has long recommended Boston go pro, in large part because of the freedom she’d have around the basket due to the WNBA’s rules that limit packing the paint.

“She’s great. She’s ready. She’s ready to see single coverage,” Staley said after the Final Four loss. “She’s ready to make the next step to the league.”
