Going Pro…Gamecocks’ Kaela Davis and Allisha Gray will enter WNBA draft

Davis (#3) and Gray (#10)

Fresh off the school’s first-ever NCAA Championship win, juniors Kaela Davis and Allisha Gray have entered the WNBA Draft. Both Davis and Gray helped the Gamecocks to the National Championship with a 67-55 victory over Mississippi State, Gray had an impressive double-double, 23 points & 10 rebounds and Davis added 10 points and 6 boards.

Both Davis and Gray transferred to South Carolina and bolstered an already talented team.  Davis is the daughter of ex-NBA player Antonio Davis and was a high scoring guard from Georgia Tech when she transferred after her sophomore season. Gray came from North Carolina, also as a sophomore. The two sat out the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer rules before making a major impact this season.

“They both have aspirations to play pro and we’re happy that we gave them a platform to raise their stock in the draft,” Head Coach Dawn Staley said at a press conference Tuesday on campus. “They both felt this was the best time for them to go.”

Should both remain in the draft, South Carolina would lose three starters. Senior Alaina Coates, injured before the NCAA Tournament, is considered a likely top WNBA pick.
