South Carolina wins inaugural DI women's basketball shooting award

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The South Carolina Gamecocks have been awarded the inaugural NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Shooting Award for most improved field goal percentage for the 2013-14 season.

The Gamecocks shot 48.2 percent from the field this season, a 9.4 percent increase in overall field goal percentage. The team’s achievement was recognized and they were presented with the award during the Women’s Final Four national semifinal game at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

With new basketball rules and points of emphasis put in place prior to the start of the 2013-14 season, designed to help increase the freedom of movement for the offense and decrease the physicality of the game, the NCAA wanted to reward the team that improved its shooting the most. Overall, Division I women’s basketball field goal shooting was 40.5 percent overall, a 1.6 percent increase this season. Women’s basketball also had an overall increase to 67.7 points per game, better than five points more than the 62.1 during the 2012-13 season.
