Celebrating the 100th year of Gamecock basketball, the University of South Carolina released its 2007-08 basketball schedule today. South Carolina's schedule features 19 games against teams that played in the 2007 post-season, including four teams which played in the 2007 NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 as well as two-time NCAA champion Florida.

Playing 17 home games, South Carolina has 14 games on television this year, including four on ESPN/ESPN2. The non-conference games that will be televised and times for each game will be announced at a later date.

The 100th Years of Basketball reunion will be celebrated the weekend of the Mississippi State game - with the game to be played on Sat., Feb. 23 at 4 pm (LF TV).

"As we open of 100th season of South Carolina basketball once again our Gamecock basketball team will be facing one of the more difficult schedules in the country," said USC Head Coach Dave Odom. "We look forward to hosting Southern California, Baylor and UC Irvine for the first time in the Colonial Center as well as playing Providence in Philadelphia as part of the first annual Big East-SEC Challenge. The tournament in Orlando over Thanksgiving will also provide our team with an early season test. The fans can expect another exciting SEC season with several teams in our league capable of challenging for the national championship.

"Our schedule was made with the hopes that it would prepare our team for the rigors of the SEC season. I know that our team shares my excitement as we look forward to the 100th year of basketball here at Carolina," said Odom.
