COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina women's basketball coach
Susan Walvius has announced her resignation. The school said in a news release Monday that Walvius' last day will be May 31.
Walvius went 165-160 and 51-103 in the Southeastern Conference
in 11 seasons with the Gamecocks. She made the NCAA tournament
twice, advancing to the regional finals in 2002.
South Carolina went 16-16 this season and 4-10 in the SEC. The
Gamecocks haven't made the NCAA tournament or had a winning record in the SEC since 2003. In the release, Walvius said she plans to pursue other opportunities, but wasn't specific. Athletics Director Eric Hyman says a national search for a new coach will begin immediately.
