Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Even King James is bowing to the new queens of college basketball.

NBA superstar Lebron James tweeted out Monday his respect for the Gamecocks.

"Congrats to @dawnstaley and the South Carolina women's squad on the chip! I just woke up from a nap and dreamed I was congratulating u guys face to face on campus! Crazy cause it felt so real! Anyways what a unbelievable season!! #StriveForGreatness."

Staley and the Gamecocks clinched their first championship in program history Sunday night in Dallas. The team was set to have a victory party Monday, but that was canceled due to bad weather. A makeup time has not been announced.

The Gamecocks will have a championship parade in downtown Columbia Saturday at 3 p.m. Further details are expected sometime this week.
