THIS WEEK IN GAMECOCK COUNTRY...

Spring is just around the corner, ushered in by the season opener for softball! The Gamecocks will host the Palmetto Classic this weekend including four games featuring Carolina. Season tickets for softball are still available for just $25 for adults and $10 for youth 17 and under.

After a road game on Thursday at Arkansas, Women's Basketball will return home to Colonial Life Arena to host Florida at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. The game is our third literacy game of the season and the winning classrooms and top readers of the third segment of our "Read with the Gamecocks" program will be recognized on the court at halftime. It is also our "Play 4 Kay" game presented by Academy Sports in support of breast cancer awareness. The first 1,000 fans will receive pink Gamecock t-shirts. The team's 18 wins to date matches the most under Coach Staley with six regular season games still remaining. Staley's squad is 18-5 overall and 7-3 in SEC play going into this week's games and re-entered the AP Top 25 at No. 24.
