COLUMBIA, S.C. -

South Carolina women's basketball assistant coach Nikki McCray says she's being treated for breast cancer.

McCray said Monday she was diagnosed in November and was told by doctors her condition was treatable. McCray says she'll continue coaching through the season, if possible. The Gamecocks, ranked 10th last week, are 16-1 and lead the Southeastern Conference with a 4-0 mark.

McCray, 42, was a two-time All-American and SEC player of the year at Tennessee. She also won two Olympic gold medals as part of the U.S. team and played with her boss, Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley.

McCray has been on Staley's staff all six seasons at South Carolina.

Staley pledged that she and her team will continue providing McCray the support she needs in fighting the disease.
