SOUTH CAROLINA – South Carolina will play Missouri and #11 UConn without its leading scorer and rebounder, Kamilla Cardoso, who will be competing for the Brazilian national team in the Olympic qualification competition.

“We want the best players on our team,” South Carolina coach Dawn Staley said. “Sometimes the best players are the best players who represent their country. When we recruited her, we told her that if there’s an opportunity to go with your national team, go with your national team.

Cardoso is sure to be missed for South Carolina as she is one of their most dangerous offensive threats. When LSU prepared to play South Carolina earlier this year, head coach Kim Mulkey pointed to Cardoso as one of the players she was most worried about. “We don’t have anyone who can match that size,” said Mulkey. Cardoso’s absence will likely give UConn a glimmer of hope to beat a challenging and undefeated team.  

6 foot 7 center Kamilla Cardoso, South Carolina’s top scorer and rebounder, averages 13.8 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 2.9 blocks.
