NEW YORK (AP) – South Carolina coach Dawn Staley says Kaela Davis and Allisha Gray are leaving the NCAA champion Gamecocks to enter the WNBA draft.

Gray posted on Twitter that she was giving up a fifth year of college to go pro. Staley says as of last night, neither player had hired an agent.

The league allows players up to five days before the April 13 draft to rescind their decision if they haven’t signed with an agent.

Davis and Gray helped the Gamecocks to the national championship with a 67-55 victory over Mississippi State on Sunday.

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.
