Future WNBA No. 1 Draft Pick Aliyah Boston has set a South Carolina women’s basketball record 73rd double-double. Boston picked up 13 points and 14 rebounds as her Gamecocks beat Arkansas in blowout fashion on Sunday.
Boston head coach Dawn Staley stated that her star player is currently unstoppable.
“Mentally tough, mentally strong. Those are the separators for Aliyah,” Staley added ESPN. “She’s in a place where you really can’t stop her.”
“Coming into (college), I didn’t really know this was a record,” Boston said. “Doing that is very exciting, because who would have thought that?”
The person Boston passed was Shiela Foster, who played for the Gamecocks from 1979 to 1982. She was in attendance at the game and spoke to WIS News 10. “Good players don’t hate player haters … it just knocked me down a notch,” Foster said. “It’s all in the Gamecock family. It’s all in the Gamecock house.”
