Aces forward and South Carolina legend A'ja Wilson was honored with a statue outside of Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, S.C. on Monday.

Wilson's statue was unveiled on January 14, just under four years after she led South Carolina to the 2017 national championship.

"A'ja Wilson's accomplishments, on and off the basketball court, make this statue so deserving," South Carolina athletic director Ray Tanner said in a statement. "She is an outstanding representative of Gamecock Athletics and our University. I am delighted that we can celebrate her in this manner.
