WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

The University of South Carolina Women's Basketball Team are national champions.

The team defeated Mississippi State 67-55 in the NCAA Championship Game in Dallas, Texas, on Sunday.

This is the first time the South Carolina Women's Basketball team has played in the national championship game and its first national championship win.

Some fans came out to watch the game at The Roost in West Ashley, a Gamecock fan bar.

Krystle Vasquez attended graduate school at USC.

"So excited the girls definitely deserve this win, it was awesome," Vasquez said.

Gamecock fans Jenny Clark and Kenzie Scurlock brought a sign with them that said "We goin' to the SHIP!"

"I've been a Gamecock fan since the time I could say Gamecocks," Clark said.

Scurlock is a new fan.

"I just moved up here from Knoxville and I just became a die-hard Gamecock fan, all the way," Scurlock said.

What was a wish, a hope and even a dream is now a reality after Sunday's victory.

 "I wish the guys had done it last night, but I'm real happy for South Carolina and for the women," said Gamecock fan John Fili. "It is awesome, unreal, real proud of them."

It was the last game of the season, that ended in the best way for the University of South Carolina. 

Gamecock alumna Chandler Coggin has a message to the team.

"Proud of you, glad you did a great job, go Cocks," Coggin said.
