VIDEO OF THE DAY
Sights & Sounds from the South Carolina Gamecocks' 38-20 win over Arkansas on Nov. 10, 2012!
Columbia Green and the Columbia Tree & Appearance Commission awarded South Carolina Athletics a Columbia Choice Award in the Renovation/Reuse category for its development of the Farmers Market site at Tuesday's Columbia Green annual meeting at Columbia Museum of Art. The site includes bio-retention cells to slow run-off, which was reduced by approximately 90 percent, and filter sediments and pollutants. All of which make 80 percent of the site permeable. Over 900 trees were planted, and the front of the site was designed as a flexible-use urban green space.
South Carolina women's basketball head coach Dawn Staley announced yesterday the signing of 6-foot-4 center Alaina Coates to a National Letter of Intent to attend the University and play for the Gamecocks. Coates will have four seasons of eligibility beginning with the 2013-14 season. Coates helped Dutch Fork to a Class 4A state title last season, contributing 11 rebounds and five blocks in the title game. A three-time South Carolina Basketball Coaches Association All-State selection, she is the 28th ranked player in the 2013 class, according to ESPN.
