South Carolina Gamecocks superstar Aliyah Boston is one of the best college basketball players in the nation.

And to one little girl watching her play at Columbia's Colonial Life Arena Thursday night, she's a superhero.

After recording 19 points, 15 rebounds, and three blocks in South Carolina's 20-point win over the Texas A&M Aggies, Boston was seen on camera making a young fan's day. The 6-foot-5 forward followed her teammates off the court and into the tunnel at their home arena.

But before she continued on to the locker room, she stopped when a pint-sized admirer donning all-Gamecocks attire sought her out from the stands.

"Aliyah!" the fan shouted at her father's urging.

Then Boston turned to smile and wave, and the little girl's heart melted. She clutched her chest and was instantly moved to tears.
