Jeannelle Scheper is the first Track & Field Gamecock to be honored by the SEC this year and the first to earn SEC Field Athlete of the Week honors since she also earned the award as a freshman last year on March 22, 2011.

Senior forward Malik Cooke has been one of Carolina's most consistent players this season. He has tallied 15 double-figure scoring games, 14 games with at least two assists, 11 games with at least five rebounds and 14 games with at least two steals. He leads the Gamecocks in points, scoring average, field goal attempts, free throw attempts and free throws made, in steals and in minutes per game. 


Today's Fan Photo of the Day is from Sheri Austin Ryder (class of 1993) who shared her picture from the Capital One Bowl.

"My daughter Sami and I flew down from DC for her first Carolina game and my first Bowl game. It was such a wonderful experience for both of us!! I loved being able to share it with her!"
