COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The South Carolina coach Dawn Staley has something new to entice women's basketball players this fall - her Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame trophy.

Staley returned Monday from a weekend of celebrations and ceremonies in Springfield, Mass., where she was inducted along with 11 other basketball greats. Staley was humbled by the honor and hopes she's set an example for young women looking to achieve big things in basketball.

Staley's got big plans heading into year six with the Gamecocks, telling the Hall of Fame audience that if her players stick with her at South Carolina they'll be national champions.

Staley has led the Gamecocks to consecutive NCAA tournament appearances and believes this honor will attract additional talented players to campus.
