Now that South Carolina has secured its first national championship in women’s basketball, the first question we’re all asking is pretty simple: When’s the parade?
While Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin was enjoying the game from Phoenix, where the men’s team bowed out of the Final Four against Gonzaga, he did say city leaders are getting ready to celebrate Dawn Staley and her team.
“Columbia’s excited,” Benjamin said. “We’re ready for the parade. We’re going to celebrate like it’s 1999 and have some fun!”
We’ve reached out to the mayor’s office for further information.
The Gamecocks defeated the Mississippi State Bulldogs 67-55 in the title game in Dallas.
