Kamilla Cardoso’s career at South Carolina will end at the Final Four.  The 6-foot-7 senior from Brazil announced Monday night she will turn pro once the Gamecocks’ season ends. Cardoso, the team’s top scorer and rebounder, could have returned for a final season, but is expected to be a top-five selection in the WNBA draft later this month.  Cardoso thanked her coaches, teammates, family and friends and South Carolina’s loyal fan base, which coach Dawn Staley and her team affectionately call the “FAMS.”  South Carolina will play North Carolina State in the national semifinals on Friday night in Cleveland.
