Dawn Staley and the women's basketball victory tour continues. Less than a week after winning the national title, the Hall of Fame coach and a handful of her players threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Gamecocks' Saturday game against Vanderbilt.

Staley was a little off, throwing it a little to John Parke's left, but it was within the white lines. She walked off the field screaming, "Not in the dirt!"

The celebration for the women continues Sunday with a city-wide parade starting at 3 p.m. at city hall and concluding at the State House. The parade will feature speeches from Mayor Steve Benjamin, Staley and A'ja Wilson.
