CLEVELAND -- A year after a stunning Final Four defeat that ended what could have been a perfect season and national championship run, the South Carolina Gamecocks finished the job Sunday in historic fashion.

Behind an 87-75 decision over the Iowa Hawkeyes in the women's NCAA tournament title game, South Carolina became the 10th team in Division I history to complete an undefeated season (38-0), joining UConn (six times), Baylor (2011-12), Tennessee (1997-98) and Texas (1985-86) as the only programs to achieve such a feat.

With a third national title in seven tournaments and second in three seasons, South Carolina tied Baylor and Stanford for the third-most championships all-time and cemented its status as women's college basketball's latest dynasty.
