Holly Rowe is a pro’s pro, but the longtime ESPN reporter made an unfortunate mistake during the national championship postgame ceremony on Sunday night.
South Carolina defeated UConn in the NCAA Women’s Tournament national title game on Sunday night, giving Dawn Staley her second championship.
Following the win, South Carolina’s Aliyah Boston was named the NCAA Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player.
Unfortunately, Rowe referred to Boston as “Aaliyah Edwards,” who plays for UConn.
Aliyah Boston wins MOP, but Holly Rowe slips up and says Aaliyah Edwards… gasps and boos from the crowd for a moment… eek

Boston scored 11 points, grabbed 16 rebounds and had three assists in the 64-49 win over UConn in the national title game.

Rowe took to Twitter shortly following the ceremony.
“Boston Boston Boston. Brain cramps happen! So sorry,” she tweeted on Sunday night.

Hey, everyone makes mistakes.
Congrats to Staley, Boston and the South Carolina women’s program on their national championship tonight.
