Dawn Staley gave an update to Aliyah Boston’s right foot injury on Sunday after the 85-38 win against Hampton.
The South Carolina women’s basketball senior is “questionable” for the Gamecocks’ next game (Tuesday vs. UCLA), Staley told reporters. She added that there was not much concern from the team doctor after they checked on Boston.
Boston — the reigning National Player of the Year — has not missed a game in her career at South Carolina.
Boston got hurt in the second quarter Sunday after cutting to the rim and then falling after a foul by a Hampton defender.
She was slow to get up but was able to shoot both free throws. Staley immediately sent Ashyln Watkins to the scorers table and took Boston out of the game.
Boston didn’t join the team in the layup lines after halftime. She came back to the bench midway through the third quarter wearing a boot on her right foot. She was able to stand without crutches during the team’s post-third quarter huddle.
She walked around on her own power after the game, mingling with fans as she normally would.
Laeticia Amihere started the second half in Boston’s place.
