Staley says Cuevas-Moore planning to stay at South Carolina
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina coach Dawn Staley says Bianca Cuevas-Moore will be back with the Gamecocks next season, just over a month after West Virginia announced the 5-foot-6 guard was joining the Mountaineers.
Staley said Friday in a university release that Cuevas-Moore is staying at South Carolina after initially planning to transfer. Staley said that “Bianca and I have had our ups and downs, but my love for her has never wavered.”
Cuevas-Moore graduated this month. West Virginia coach Mike Carey said last month that Cuevas-Moore would be finishing her career with the Mountaineers.
Cuevas-Moore missed the 2017-18 season due to an injured left knee but played a key role in the Gamecocks’ drive to the 2016-17 national title. She started 19 games and averaged 8.3 points that season.
