Follow Friday: @dawnstaley
Every week, USAB.com will join in the popular “Follow Friday” tradition and highlight one of the Twitter accounts we’re following. This week’s pick is @dawnstaley.
It’s already been a very busy week for the University of South Carolina women’s basketball head coach. On Monday, she was named an assistant coach for the USA Basketball Women’s National Team through the 2016 Olympic Games. Staley held that same role last fall when the 2014 USA World Championship Team took gold in Turkey. That was just two months after Staley served as head coach for the USA U18 National Team that won gold at the FIBA Americas U18 Championship in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The No. 1-ranked Gamecocks lost Monday night in Storrs, Connecticut, to the No. 2-ranked UConn Huskies but that didn’t stop Staley – who’s won 10 gold medals as a player, including three Olympic and two World Championship golds – from keeping active on Twitter. If anyone in the Twitterverse makes mention of @dawnstaley or anything positive about South Carolina women’s basketball, it’s a safe bet Staley will retweet it.
