Head Coach: Dawn Staley (13th season in 2020-21)
Unofficial Scholarship Chart
Note: The NCAA has granted an extra year of eligibility to 2020-21 D-I winter sports athletes (including women’s basketball players). Programs will be allowed to exceed the 15-scholarship limit for the 2021-22 season only (and only for their own returning players). Until there is definitive word that a player will be taking advantage of this extra year, the WBB Blog scholarship charts will not reflect this extra eligibility.

- April 2021: LeLe Grissett announces she’ll return to South Carolina for the 2021-22 season, using the NCAA’s blanket extra year of eligibility
- April 2021: Kamilla Cardoso transfers in from Syracuse (press release)
