Boston Named CoSIDA Academic All-District

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina sophomore Aliyah Boston earned a spot on the CoSIDA Women’s Basketball Academic All-District 4 First Team, the organization announced today. A unanimous All-American this season, the mass communications major now advances to the Academic All-America ballot. Academic All-America selections will be announced later this month.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve who has participated in at least 50 percent of the team’s competitions and is at least a sophomore both academically and athletically.
The first Gamecock to earn Academic All-District honors since 2017, Boston boasts a 3.80 GPA in mass communications to go with a career that has seen her earn All-America honors in both seasons, including unanimous first-team status in 2020-21. The two-time Lisa Leslie Award winner as the best center in the country, she is also a two-time SEC Defensive Player of the Year and First-Team All-SEC selection.
This season, Boston’s 17 double-doubles ranked fifth in the nation and yielded 13.7 points and 11.5 rebounds per game on the season. She was among the nation’s top 20 in rebounds per game (12th), offensive rebounds per game (18th, 4.1) and blocks per game (18th, 2.6). Boston grabbed double-digit rebounds in 23 of her 31 games on the season. Her dominance in the SEC Tournament delivered the Gamecocks’ second-straight title at that event and earned her Tournament MVP honors. She was also named to the NCAA Hemisfair Region All-Tournament Team.
