SI Weekly Podcast: Aliyah Boston’s dominance at South Carolina

South Carolina star Aliyah Boston has been dominant since her childhood days of playing in the US Virgin Islands’ sports, parks and recreation league. After a dominant 2021–22 regular season and strong play in this year’s women’s NCAA tournament, the St. Thomas native and the Gamecocks sit one game away from making an appearance in the women’s national championship game on Sunday.

The Gamecocks will look for redemption in their Final Four matchup on Friday against a talented Louisville team that is no stranger to success in the NCAA tournament.

Since Jeff Walz was hired as Louisville’s coach in 2007, the Cardinals have made four appearances in the Final Four and have made the Big Dance in every season in his tenure except 2010. However, in its last two title game appearances (2008–09, 2012–13), Louisville has come up short. The Cardinals will look to change the narrative when its faces the Gamecocks.
