South Carolina’s A’ja Wilson and UCLA’s Jordin Canada are this week’s Wade Watch Spotlight players because of their outstanding performances last week (Jan. 25 through Jan. 31).
Wilson posted a game-high 27 points as South Carolina topped Arkansas 90-42. She put on a display on the defensive side blocking an SEC-season-high seven shots and grabbing seven of her 13 rebounds on the defensive end. The senior forward shot a spectacular 11 of 19 from the field and dished out three assists. Later in the week, in the Gamecocks’ 64-54 win over Missouri, she kept up her dominance, posting her second double-double of the week with 15 rebounds and 15 points. With that stellar scoring performance, the senior from Hopkins, South Carolina, exceeded 2,00 career points and became South Carolina’s all-time leading scorer in SEC play.
