The University of South Carolina's women's basketball legend, A'ja Wilson, was honored Thursday through the unveiling of her statue. 

It was first announced during the university's commencement ceremony in 2018, by former UofSC President Harris Pastides, that a statue would be erected in honor of Wilson.

The statue was finally visible Thursday, coming almost three years after Pastides' announcement. Gamecock Women's Basketball shared the news via Twitter:

NBA star, LeBron James congratulated Wilson in a Tweet.

Wilson has won numerous awards and was a key player in leading the women's basketball team to their National Championship victory in 2017.
