Aliyah Boston Brings 2022 Wooden Award Back to South Carolina

Aliyah Boston rounded out a dominant junior year campaign by winning the national title on Sunday and winning the 2022 Wooden Award.

Boston led the Gamecocks to a wire-to-wire finish as the no. 1 team in the polls, leading the team in scoring, rebounds, and blocks by averaging 16.8 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 24 blocks per game on 54.2 percent shooting from the field. The 6’5 center set an SEC record when she posted 27 consecutive double-doubles.

Boston is the second Gamecock to win the Wooden Award, joining A’ja Wilson, who won it as a senior in 2018, as the only winners in program history. Boston has already won the SEC, Naismith, Associated Press, and WBCA Player of the Year. She also won the SEC and Naismith Defensive Player of the Year awards.
