by Kyle Murphy (VI Consortium) South Carolina won its second NCAA national title in program history by beating UConn 64-49 in the Women’s Basketball National Title Game on Sunday night. Virgin Islander Aliyah Boston recorded her 30th double-double of the season with 11 points and 16 rebounds in the victory.

In an emotional post game interview, Boston told ESPN, “We are national champions, I’m in tears.”

South Carolina dominated the rebounding battle against UConn 49-24 in the game.

When asked about South Carolina’s dominance on the glass, Boston stated, “We knew that we have been dominant on the glass all season and we knew that we couldn’t change up, especially for this game we knew it would come down to rebounding.”

South Carolina’s Destanni Henderson led the game in scoring with a career-high 26 points.

South Carolina had six offensive rebounds in the first five minutes of the game and jumped out to an early 13-2 lead. Boston had three of those early offensive rebounds and scored a lay-up during the Gamecocks run.
