Tweetcap: South Carolina Gamecocks win the NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship

Twitter gave us all we wanted from a night we won’t soon forget

NCAA Womens Basketball: Women's Final Four-Mississippi State vs South Carolina Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Out of the haze that’s been this weekend, the South Carolina Gamecocks finally emerged as the champions of women’s college basketball. Dawn Staley arrived in Columbia in 2008, slowly built a national power and finally has some hardware to show for it.

Bravo ladies. Bravo.

However in this particular piece we’re not going to get into the praising of the ladies team — because we’re going to let Twitter do it for us. Twitter — somehow still free — has given us good reason to still watch live sports. The live reactions are priceless as the come minute by minute, and you didn’t have to be on Twitter to see it yourself.

We took the best of the best from Sunday night and compiled them here for your reading pleasure. Enjoy!

ESPN hyping up Mississippi State

This was something odd happening during the ESPN pregame presentation. It’s understandable why ESPN would pump up up the “Mississippi State beat UConn” angle, but in the process they completely ignored the fact South Carolina was also in the title game.

Understandably, some fans were pretty irked.

The ESPN-Alaina Coates Feud

This was a weird incident that happened pregame as well. ESPN talking heads, specifically Mechelle Voepel, were critical of Alaina Coates for not being at the game. Well, Alaina didn’t like that so much and took to Twitter for an explanation.
