South Carolina vs. Temple
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina travels to New York City on Thursday to face Temple in the Second Annual Under Armour Reunion event at Madison Square Garden. The contest will mark Carolina's first in the historic venue since posting a 77-70 win over Florida in the Elite Eight last March to advance to the Final Four.
> South Carolina hits the road for the second time this week, setting its sights on The Big Apple for the Second Annual Under Armour Reunion at Madison Square Garden. The Gamecocks also played in the event last season, suffering a 67-64 loss to Seton Hall.
> South Carolina is in its 110th season of varsity basketball in 2017-18.
SCOUTING THE GAMECOCKS
> The South Carolina starting five had a strong outing in Monday’s matchup win at FIU, scoring 74 of Carolina’s 78 points, let by Silva’s game high and career best, 26 points.
SCOUTING THE OWLS
> Temple is led by head coach Fran Dunphy - one of 25 active coaches with at least 500 wins - in his 12th season with the Owls. Prior to his time at Temple, Dunphy was the head coach at Penn.
BIG APPLE GAMECOCKS
> South Carolina has a storied history with the city of New York, as Gamecock greats Frank McGuire, Mike Dunleavy, John Roche, Tom Owens, and several others call the Big Apple home. Assistant coach Chuck Martin grew up in the Bronx, graduate transfer Wes Myers is a native of Brooklyn, and the list goes on. The Gamecocks have also had success at MSG. Carolina has played games at the Mecca of Basketball throughout its history, playing for example in the Holiday Festival Tournament at MSG in the late 1960’s, capturing two NIT championships at The Garden in 2005 and again in 2006, and of course last season’s two NCAA Tournament wins over Baylor and Florida during the magical run to the Final Four.
> South Carolina finally returns home to Columbia to host three-straight non-conference matchups at Colonial Life Arena, beginning with Saturday’s matchup vs. UMass. Tip time is set for 2 p.m. ET, and the contest will be broadcast on SEC Network+.
