South Carolina and Fort Myers’ Destanni Henderson ready to take her talents to WNBA

Destanni Henderson has gone from a WNBA prospect to a possible first-rounder. All it took was 40 minutes Sunday.

The Fort Myers High School graduate has seen a career-best performance in the final game of her South Carolina career, a 64-49 NCAA championship game victory over UConn, reverberating in her pursuits as a professional basketball player, social media personality, and entrepreneur.

“It’s still busy, still living in the moment, and people are so excited, especially coming back to school,” Henderson said Friday. “It feels really good to be back on campus and to feel the love that everybody has for our team and what we’ve accomplished.”
