A historic day for Black coaches in CBB 🙌🏾
On this day in 1984, John Thompson became the first Black head coach to win an NCAA Men's Division I national title.
On this day in 2017, Dawn Staley became the second Black head coach to win an NCAA women's Division I national title. https://t.co/LV0W71BRwQ
South Carolina head coach Dawn Staley on the significance of having two Black coaches in tonight's #ncaaW Final Four.

Could be wrong here but it looks like Dawn Staley is wearing a version of her @UVAWomensHoops
uniform under her blazer tonight. If so, that's awesome. #WFinalFour #GoHoos https://t.co/54bp0T5iE6
I just think it’s funny how in the season that Dawn Staley has been calling out the NCAA for sexism and misogyny and was very vocal about social justice, the refs ignored all those blatant calls. Even when SC purposefully tried to foul, it wasn’t called. Real interesting 🥴🧐🤔
I can’t say enough about Coach Dawn Staley, her legacy, and the legacy she’s built at @UofSC
. She is a transcendent on many levels. Thank you for another great year, Coach 🙏🏾 #hof #togodbetheglory #forevertothee
Dawn Staley takes a moment at the end of her press conference to specifically thank Lynn Holtzman, San Antonio and the NCAA organizers for putting on the tournament. Very classy at a moment I'm sure most of us wouldn't be able to be.
After falling in the Final Four in about as tough a way as you can imagine, #Gamecocks HC Dawn Staley says SC will learn from it: “we will get better so we can arm ourselves with what need to reverse us losing bball games in this moment.” @foxcarolinanews @GamecockWBB
Dawn Staley (@dawnstaley
) on how proud she is of her team.
Says the team will get better from tonight's loss.
"Every time that we've had a setback, we've gotten better, I am proud and honored to coach this team and am looking forward to getting back here."
Caitlin Clark has been named the 2021 Dawn Staley Award winner. The award is given to the most outstanding collegiate guard in the country, and Clark is the first freshman ever to win the award.
Dawn Staley on Aliyah Boston: "It’s tough because it’s real personal to her. It sticks with her. It’s part of the game. One or two moments like that don’t define who she is as a player. I hope she’ll get over it. She won’t for a long time." https://t.co/3cZLXYZqkr
Dawn Staley still the goat 🙌🏽
Dawn Staley after South Carolina's #WFinalFour loss:
"I thought about the UConn game, I thought it was going to be redemption for Aliyah, but it wasn't in the cards for us...I told our players the margin of error is that small." @wachfox https://t.co/XdE05lwcJw
South Carolina coach Dawn Staley on quality of WBB games:
If everyone from kids to the "dad that likes to sit on the couch and watch sports all day" picks a team, "You'll fall in love with our game."
And if you're not watching? "You're missing out on some great basketball."
Vivian stringer went to Carolyn Peck who went to Dawn Staley...continue to sow into us young ones! We need & love that 🙌🏾
Pat Summitt, Carolyn Peck, Geno Auriemma, Dawn Staley.....we really gotta pay homage to some of these coaches in women’s collegiate basketball. Some of the best in sports period.
That was an awesome package narrated by Carolyn Peck on Dawn Staley and Adia Barnes and the meaning of this moment to have two Black women coaching in the Final Four.
No words, other than that I love seeing these images of Carolyn Peck, Dawn Staley, and Vivian Stringer.♥️ https://t.co/jeB6gfkd0g
Once saw Dawn Staley's team beat Cindy Griffin's Hawks three times in a season by like 7 or 8 TOTAL points, to downgrade them from a surefire NCAA to a WNIT team. She can really coach teams up. And was (unlike Baylor's HC) very gracious in defeat tonight.

#Gamecocks HC Dawn Staley on this NCAAW Tourney bringing in more fans: “Our game is a beautiful game, made up of awesome women that can flat out shoot the ball... sometimes we have a willingness to look at women and think we can’t play, well you’re missing out.” @foxcarolinanews
I just went down your TL and now I understand why you quote tweeted that. You’re a Dawn Staley hater. To misgender her and call her Donnie is WACK.
