COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Atlantic Coast Conference rebounding leader Sarah Imovbioh of Virginia has signed to play her final season with South Carolina.
Imovbioh, a 6-foot-2 forward from Nigeria, spent the past three seasons with the Cavaliers. She's graduating next month and can play next season with the Gamecocks.
Imovbioh led the ACC at 10.8 rebounds a game last year. She was 19th nationally.
Imovbioh will help bulk up South Carolina's front court, which is losing its starting forwards, 6-foot Aleighsa Welch and 6-4 Elem Ibiam.
Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley says Imovbioh's transfer was a ''true gift to our program.''
Imovbioh joins 5-8 guard Shay Colley from Ontario, Canada, in South Carolina's signing class.
South Carolina advanced to its first Final Four this month.
