Default A男a Wilson

Based on overall performance, honors, conference championships and a national championship, could A'ja Wilson go down as the greatest athlete in Gamecock history?

She should but I wouldn稚 put it past the voters to award it to Kelsey Mitchell or one of UConn痴 players. Perhaps that痴 my own paranoia. I feel A男a should actually be going for her second POY as she was the best player last season.

As for Gamecock history, at the very least she will easily stand shoulder to shoulder next to any HOF athlete at USC.

She's the favorite for national player of the year this year, led the program to it's first national title in Women's Basketball was the most outstanding player of the final four. Is from the Columbia area. She's South Carolina personified.

In terms of accomplishments she eclipses everyone. The only one that comes even remotely close is Michael Roth.

It's hard to say the best athlete of all time as it is hard to compare athletes from a different eras as it is compare men and women athletes but she should be in the conversation. It would be like comparing Bill Russell to Michael Jordan. just too hard to compare.

So far this season, A'ja is clearly playing like the national POTY. There are certainly other strong contenders, but she's showing a lot of depth in her game right now. She scored 34 points against a top ten team while being double and triple teamed much of the game. Once Bianca, and maybe Te'a are back playing, we will be a much better team.

This team is leaning on her too much. Hopefully she doesn't wear down in conference play. I saw her last week against Rutgers and she played great.

Probably. When the conversation is had about greatest Gamecock athletes of all time you have to include A'ja Wilson in that conversation and she hasn't even won NPOY yet. If she does, then she's easily the most accomplished.

She needs to average ~21 points per game this year to take the career scoring record from Sheila Foster.

I had the chance to set at court level for the CoC game.

She is smooth during the game, like a shark gliding through the water occasionally turning right or left to gobble up the little fishies and hit her shots.

I think this pic with what's on the banner screens in the background says it all.

I think because of the team's success, with her as an All-American 4 straight years and if she wins NPOTY this year, that would put her at the top. I want to win a national championship, pf course, but another SEC regular season and tournament title would be very sweet. That prospect is why I'm planning on attending the SEC Tournament again this year.

I don't know about greatest. Michael Roth pitched us to Back to Back National Championships and to the finals of a third. And while he didn't win a championship, Shaw led the team to 18 consecutive home wins in the toughest football conference in the country. And Big George has a Heisman. I don't really go for the comparison thing. But she is in elite company as one of the greatest.
