South Carolina begins a new dynasty in college basketball
It’s ironic that South Carolina won the national championship at the expense of Connecticut. A new dynasty has taken the throne from the old.
Pushnaija has gathered that in winning its second championship in six years, the team was ecstatic. South Carolina defeated Connecticut on Sunday, handing the Huskies their first loss in 12 national championship games. Also, the amazing performance left little doubt that South Carolina had won the championship rather than that UConn University of Connecticut) had lost the championship.
Aliyah Boston recorded what has become her signature performance scoring 11 points and grabbing 16 rebounds. South Carolina had 21 offensive rebounds, which was three fewer than the total number of offensive rebounds UConn had.
Furthermore, Destanni Henderson put on the best performance of her life in her final college game, scoring a career-high 26 points while also limiting Paige Bueckers’s scoring opportunities. The final result was 64-49, which wasn’t even close to the scoreline indicated.
‘UConn is not only a fantastic squad, but they also have a fantastic tradition. They are a part of the history of our women’s basketball programme. That’s something you can’t really take away from them’, coach Dawn Staley stated. ‘However, it was divinely ordained for us to be champions today. We were not going to take no for an answer,’ she added.
If not for the tournament being cancelled in 2020, when South Carolina was 32-1 and expected to be the overall No. 1 seed, and last-second misses in last year’s national semifinal, this could be three in a row for the Gamecocks. As things stand, they are poised to repeat the entire process next year.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar states that Lebron should be ashamed of how he handled COVID-19
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the legendary centre for the Los Angeles Lakers, took aim at LeBron James on Sunday afternoon while attending an NBA ceremony. Abdul-Jabbar, who has already attacked James for his handling of the COVID-19 outbreak, has reiterated his discontent.
In addition to James’ support for Andrew Wiggins earlier in the season, Abdul-Jabbar expressed frustration with James for posting a meme on Instagram that compared COVID-19 to the flu or a common cold. While Abdul-Jabbar is discontent with the way LeBron has handled this matter, he would welcome the opportunity to sit down with him and discuss their respective activism efforts.
‘It’s not something I mind doing if he’s willing to put in the effort. The things he’s done that have grabbed all of our attention are things I like about him. Is it appropriate to send an entire school to college? Wow. That is just wonderful. To be commended for his thoughtfulness and willingness to back it up with his money is an understatement,’ Abdul Jabbar said.
As a result, I’m not casting aspersions. I just hope he wouldn’t do that because, you know, some of the things he’s done should make him feel ashamed of himself. Just to clarify, that’s where I’m coming from’, Jabbar added.
Another issue Abdul-Jabbar had was when LeBron James was fined $15,000 by the NBA in November for participating in a celebration that the league deemed vulgar.
