As usual, South Carolina women's basketball coach Dawn Staley kept it a buck with reporters Sunday.

When asked Geno Auriemma's 11-0 record in national title games as the coach of UConn, Staley made sure folks didn't forget about her team.

"We're 1-0, so we're 100 percent too," Staley said.

Staley's comment got a good amount of play on Twitter. "Dawn Staley >>>>"

"It is cute that you think it’s the same thing," replied a Huskies fan.

"She still losing," commented another user.

"Gone be 1-1 after tonight," said another.

"Yo Dawn Staley the GOAT," tweeted another account.

"Champions mind," another tweeted of Staley's remarks.

"Real Sh-t!" another fan added.

Dawn Staley and the Gamecocks will look to make it 2-0 against the Huskies come Sunday night. The championship game of the women's Final Four tips-off in Minneapolis at 8 PM ET on ESPN.

Geno Auriemma's UConn team has scrapped its way to the national championship, led by Paige Bueckers. But they haven't faced a test like Aliyah Boston yet.
