The South Carolina Gamecocks won a barnburner last night in the NCAA Tournament’s Stockton Regional final against Florida State to advance to the Women’s Final Four for the second time in three seasons. As it turns out, Dawn Staley has a lot of fans around the country in a lot of places, as we saw after the game.

That’s Grammy award winner and platinum recording artist Lil Wayne (aka Weezy). “Ms. Cita” is Lil Wayne’s mother, who raised him as a single parent and who’s gotten several callouts on many of his songs.

A few South Carolina fans saw the tweet and decided to shoot their shot:

Alas, it didn’t work: South Carolina students had class as usual today, and even if he did ask Pastides to cancel, I doubt Pastides even knows who Lil Wayne is or what he does.

Mississippi State has ABC’s Robin Roberts as one of their superfans; the Gamecocks have Weezy on their side. We’ll take it.
