Deion Sanders Applauds Dawn Staley After Shutting Off Angel Reese and Co. in SEC Championship Game: “Love Ya 2 Life Sis”

One of the most exciting battles went down on the court in the last SEC Championship game between the South Carolina Gamecocks and LSU Tigers.

The intensity of this particular women’s basketball game extended beyond regular play because a physical brawl occurred. South Carolina star Kamilla Cardoso and LSU Angel Reese took the rivalry beyond the court as they began to physically target each other, with the built-up tension ultimately leading to Cardoso being ejected from the game in the fourth quarter.

Despite the heated brawl and ejection, South Carolina, headed by 2x NCAA Division I Tournament champ coach Dawn Staley, still took home the prestigious title.

This caught the attention of many people including Deion Sanders who couldn’t hide his admiration for the 53-year-old basketball Hall of Famer. See what heartwarming message Coach Prime sent Staley’s way.

What you’ve accomplished in life, in victory, in defeat, how classy, how strong, the bravado, the compassion, the love that you give off, it’s infectious.” South Carolina went on to win the game 100-71.
