COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC/WIS) - South Carolina lawmakers paid tribute to the USC Women's basketball team at the State House Wednesday.

Rep. Todd Rutherford issued an official proclamation stating the legislators are the team's biggest fans.

With the team's massive following statewide, House Speaker Jay Lucas said whether you're a Clemson Tiger or a Gamecock, everyone supports the team and their amazing season.

Head Coach Dawn Staley says the devotion for her team shows across the Palmetto State.

"Whether you're a gamecock fan or not, I think you have an appreciation for what our players have brought to the state, how they represented the state extremely well both on and off the court," Staley said. "And I think people can really see the uniqueness of it."

The women's team was also honored on the other side of the State House in the Senate as well.
