COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Dawn Staley says A'ja Wilson will be heading to the Southeastern Conference Tournament with her team, but she isn't sure if the three-time SEC player of the year can play.
Wilson has been battling vertigo for several days and missed the No. 8 Gamecocks final regular season game, a 65-46 loss to No. 12 Tennessee on Sunday.
South Carolina plays on Friday in the quarterfinals against the winner of Tennessee and Auburn. While Staley says the senior's dizziness has improved, she won't know until the day of the game if she can play.
Wilson won her third SEC player of the year award this week and is a candidate for national player of the year. She is averaging 23 points and 12 rebounds a game.
