MT. PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - South Carolina Gamecocks women's basketball coach Dawn Staley will be in the Lowcountry today to speak with students at Charles Pinckney Elementary School.
Fresh off Sunday's dramatic 51-50 comeback victory over the No. 9 Duke Blue Devils, Staley will be giving new shoes to fifth graders through her INNERSOLE organization. INNERSOLE provides shoes to families that struggle to afford new shoes for their children.
The Gamecocks (8-0) are the No. 1 ranked women's college basketball team in the nation. Staley became the Gamecocks' head coach in 2008, and has led the team to the NCAA tournament the past three seasons.
