COLUMBIA, S.C. - With four of the six individual awards, three all-conference spots, two entries on the all-defensive team and one all-freshman selection, regular-season champion South Carolina dominated the coaches' vote for SEC awards, the league office announced today. Head coach Dawn Staley was named Coach of the Year by her peers, the second Gamecock leader to earn the award. Sophomore guard Tiffany Mitchell became just the second sophomore in league history to earn the Player of the Year honors from the league's coaches, in addition to earning a spot on the All-SEC First Team and All-Defensive team. Alaina Coates captured Freshman of the Year and co-6th Woman of the Year awards, becoming the first freshman in league history to earn multiple individual awards in a season and the first Gamecock to win either award from the league's coaches. Junior forward Aleighsa Welch earned a spot on the All-SEC First Team, and junior center Elem Ibiam was named to the All-Defensive Team. The Gamecocks are the only team with a representative on all four teams, and their three All-SEC selections are more than any other team.

"I'm so happy for all of our players," Staley said. "It really shows that when you play as a unit, you can accomplish both team and individual goals. It truly is great to be a Gamecock."

Great quote from Tiffany M :

"I'm excited that my teammates and coaches helped me along the path to this award, and to the season we are having. I couldn't have earned this without any of them, especially Aleighsa [Welch]. The only way this could be better is if there was a way for her to have shared this award with me."
