Gamecocks' Staley on African trip with Clintons

AP Sports Writer

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Dawn Staley has spent part of her summer on a visit she hopes will be just as instructional to her players as any skills camp or shooting workout.

Staley is on a 10-day tour of 5 African nations with President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea, part of delegation assembled by the Clinton Foundation to see the progress being made on organization-sponsored projects. Staley was asked by the WNBA if she'd attend and jumped at the chance.

She's been in Malawi visiting farmers learning how to add protein to their diet and in Rwanda as people used water pouches to purify drinking water. She's talked with the Clintons extensively on the visit.

Staley will be enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame next month.
