South Carolina star Aliyah Boston won every major player of the year award, as well as the honor of most outstanding player for the NCAA women’s Final Four.

Just Women’s Sports partnered with Cisco and @nba_paint to commemorate Boston’s sterling season in cartoon form.

Utilizing Cisco’s Webex Whiteboard functionality to draw up the moment, @nba_paint depicts Boston racking up awards at a “Spelling Bee.”

The bee represents the NCAA basketball season, as well as the Sunday’s national championship game. Boston and the Gamecocks finished the season with a 35-2 record, capped by a 64-49 win against UConn in the NCAA tournament final. Boston recorded her 30th double-double of the season in the victory.

The cartoon Boston can be seen with trophies for her Naismith national player of the year and Naismith national defensive player of the year awards, as well as for her Final Four MOP award. She is holding the national championship trophy.

The junior forward not only won those trophies, she also won the John R. Wooden Award and was named national player of the year by the Associated Press, the United States Basketball Writers Association Trophy and the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association.

As part of the lead up to the NCAA championship game, Just Women’s Sports partnered with Cisco and @nba_paint for a three-part series called “Drawing up the dub.”

The series also spotlighted Paige Bueckers’ impressive semifinal performance for UConn and the Just Women’s Sports Final Four preview show “The Warm-Up.”
