Staley finished her fifth season at South Carolina. The team finished 25-8 and won a school record 11 games in Southeastern Conference play this past year. The Gamecocks fell in the NCAA tournament's second round to Kansas. They reached the round of 16 in 2012.
Earlier this month, Staley was named to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
