WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Fresh off of winning a national championship with the South Carolina women’s basketball team, former Ashley High School standout Saniya Rivers announced she is entering the transfer portal.

In a tweet Thursday, Rivers thanked the Gamecock coaching staff, program and fans for a memorable freshman season in Columbia, S.C.

“With that being said, I will be entering my name into the transfer portal with three years of eligibility remaining to further pursue my academic and athletic career goals,” she wrote.
