Dawn Staley, who made history as the first female Black head coach for South Carolina Gamecocks Women’s Basketball, is now the highest-paid Black coach in women’s college basketball after signing a 7-year contract worth $22.4 million. As part of the contract, Staley’s base salary will be $1 million per year with outside compensation starting at $1.9 million on the first year, increasing by $100,000 each year after that. She is now one of the highest-paid women’s basketball coaches in the country, alongside well-known University of Connecticut Huskies coach Geno Auriemma.

South Carolina basketball star Aliyah Bostoncalled out ESPN for failing to invite her to the ESPY Awards, the annual ceremony that recognizes excellence in sports. The 20-year-old was nominated for the “Best College Athlete, Women’s Sports” award. The ceremony took place on July 20, at the 3,400-seat Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. “To be nominated for an ESPY award meant the world to me and my family. While it hurt finding out that they wouldn’t be televising the category despite it being televised last year, and had no intentions for me to attend… it hurt more to see ESPN change course and invite me only after social media caught wind of it. Respectfully, I declined,” she wrote in a statement posted on Twitter. Read entire article here: https://girlsunited.essence.com/article/aliyah-boston-espy-awards/?fs=e&s=cl
