Writes the Washington Post’s Sally Jenkins:

With a voice like a raven and a talent for persuading her players — and a steel learned playing against guys on the street courts of Philadelphia — Staley is a strikingly compelling figure. And now that she has built South Carolina into a championship program, it’s hard to see how she won’t win more — and be a permanent force for the Connecticuts and Baylors and Notre Dames to reckon with. “She put her voice in us,” said all-American A’ja Wilson, who wrested the game away with 23 points and 10 rebounds.
