Basketball Preview Party theme? Protect this house

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Monday night the My Carolina Alumni Association and the Gamecock Club hosted a Basketball Preview Party for their members. The event included an autograph session, food and beverages, Cocky, the cheerleaders and the band, a silent auction, door prizes, a 3-point shot contest (sophomore guard Ieasia Walker made eight out of her 10 three point shots!), and introductions of all the players and coaches. Both head coaches, Dawn Staley and Darrin Horn, spoke to the crowd and emphasized the need to protect this house. If we protect home court and win those games, both teams could be very successful. Staley and Horn also expressed appreciation for the fans' support, both last night at the event and throughout the season. 

Folks were excited to get a glimpse of this season's new Under Armour uniforms, which you can check out in the photos on our Facebook page (more on the development of the new uniforms coming up tomorrow on Spurs Up Blog).

Both teams have exhibition games this week that are free to attend. The men play Thursday night at 7:00 PM vs. Kentucky Wesleyan and the women play on Friday night vs. Lander, also at 7:00 PM. We'll have the season openers for both teams in a doubleheader on Friday, November 12, starting at 6:30 PM with the women vs. No. 5 Xavier followed by the men at 9:00 PM vs. Elon. Get tickets by calling 1-800-4SC-FANS or order online on

See you there! Go Gamecocks!
