Dawn Staley 3-on-3 Tip-Off

Women’s basketball head coach Dawn Staley hosted the first “Dawn Staley 3-0n-3 Tip-Off” last night and from all reports, it was a rousing success.

  • The turnout was great – 32 teams participated in the event and there was actually a waiting list of another 20 teams.
  • Based on the success of Thursday night, look for this to become an annual event and possibly expanding the field.
  • Each team received three Gamecock reversible practice jerseys.
  • Free food, free drinks and a DJ were all available at the event
  • Each game was played to 11 points (teams had to win by 2). A 20-minute time limit per game was also in effect.
  • Before the tournament started, Coach Staley challenged the students to give the Gamecocks the best student attendance in the country at women’s basketball games

The two finals teams will compete at halftime of the women’s basketball game vs. Penn State on Nov. 22nd. Coach Staley will buy spring semester books for the winning team. Make sure you stick around at halftime to see it (from what we saw of the other tournament games, competition will be fierce!).
