  2. Kamari Wilson Gamecocks have early positioning with '22 safety Feb. 11, 2020, | sportstalk USC coach Will Muschamp feels he got a steal with the late commitment and signing of LB Gilber Edmond of Fort Pierce, FL Edmond literally changed his plans from South Florida to USC in the final minutes before signing last Wednesday morning. And with Edmond in the fold, the Gamecocks will have an excellent chance to land his close friend and teammate SAF Kamari Wilson (6-1 180) for the 2022 class. “We have a safety that is the best in the nation in the class of 2022,” said Westwood High assistant coach Roscoe Barber. “He’s been seriously thinking about committing now that Gilber is going there. They (USC) are one of his top schools. They are in the lead group.” Wilson has not yet been given a rating in the 247Sports composite but he’s expected to be in the 4-5 star range based off his offer list of USC, Miami, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Penn State and Tennessee. Barber feels a 5-star rating would fit the talent. “There is nothing Kamari can’t do on the football field,” Barber said. “He came into our program wanting to make a name for himself and did just that thru all the hard work and dedication he put in. He received his first offer from the University of Florida in the spring of his freshman year. Now he has offers from South Carolina, Penn State, Indiana, Miami, Tennessee. This year he has played every position on our defense except for defensive tackle. He is a big time playmaker and wants to be great on and off the field.” Wilson has seen USC. He was in with his seven-on-seven team last summer and the plan is for him to get back for a recruiting stop. “Kamari really enjoyed the visit,” Barber said. “He wants to get back on campus to see more of it. And he just wants to see what’s going on with the staff being that there are all these changes happening. But Gilber being there does put them at the top of his list. They are very close.” Barber added that the two staff members coming to USC from Tennessee should be familiar with Wilson since he was offered by the Vols.
  3. Jordan Burch Erik Kimrey details what Gamecocks are getting in Jordan Burch (AUDIO) Feb. 11, 2020, | sportstalk The process was drawn out a little longer than expected, but USC still came away with the big in-state recruiting prize last week when DL Jordan Burch of Hammond School signed with the Gamecocks. The five-star prospect at one point was ranked the #1 player in the country in the 247Sports composite before finishing with a #8 ranking. The end to his recruiting process perhaps left some Gamecock supporters with a negative attitude toward Burch. Monday night his coach Erik Kimrey joined us on SportsTalk and gave us a detailed look into Jordan Burch the football player and what the Gamecocks will be getting for their defensive line.

  5. Baseball 2/11/2020, | GCF Staff Report Gamecock Announces Opening Weekend Rotation The Gamecocks will go with Carmen Mlodzinski, Brett Kerry and Brannon Jordan vs. Holy Cross. COLUMBIA – Head Coach Mark Kingston announced his Opening Weekend rotation this afternoon (Tuesday, Feb. 11) for the three-game series against Holy Cross. The Gamecocks will go with redshirt sophomore righthander Carmen Mlodzinski, sophomore righthander Brett Kerry and junior righthander Brannon Jordan for the first three contests. Mlodzinski will get the ball on Opening Day for the second consecutive season as he had a no-decision in the 6-5 loss to Liberty on Feb. 15, 2019. The Hilton Head native made just three appearances last year before an injury in the Clemson game sidelined him for the spring. Mlodzinski has a tremendous summer in the Cape Cod League and is ranked No. 7 in the Top College Prospect list by D1Baseball.com. Kerry is coming off a great rookie campaign, earning Freshman All-America honors by four different organization and an SEC All-Freshman nod in 2019. Kerry was 4-1 with a 2.62 ERA in 22 appearances and had 65 strikeouts in 58.1 innings pitched. This will be Kerry's third career start for the Gamecocks, as he had a no-decision against Valparaiso on March 10 and picked up a win in the regular-season finale at Mississippi State on May 18. Jordan was selected in the 31st round of the 2019 MLB First-Year Player Draft by the Tampa Bay Rays. He attended Cowley County Community College in Kansas for two years and was named the Jayhawk East Conference and Region 6 Pitcher of the Year in 2019, striking out 74 in 61.1 innings.
  6. FEBRUARY 11, 2020 by MICHAEL MCKEE THEBIGSPUR.COM An In-Depth Look At The Gamecocks NCAA Tournament Chances With Just Eight Conference Games Remaining In what seems to be a February tradition for South Carolina men’s basketball, the Gamecocks find themselves fighting tooth and nail for a NCAA Tournament berth. As of today, Carolina’s NET Ranking is 76. In order to be a true bubble team, that ranking needs to be at 55 or better, which seems like a pretty long way to go for the Gamecocks, given their two Quad 4 losses to Boston and Stetson. The Gamecocks have a 3-5 record against Quad 1 teams, with wins over Kentucky, at Arkansas, and at Virginia. The Quad 1 losses that the Gamecocks have suffered were the games against Houston, Northern Iowa, Florida, at Tennessee, and at Auburn. In Quad 2, the Gamecocks’ lone win is at Clemson, with losses to Wichita State and at Ole Miss. Currently, the Gamecocks have a perfect 5-0 record against Quad 3 teams. As this regular season draws to a close with eight games remaining, each game for Carolina is of the utmost importance if they are going to earn an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament. In the remaining contests, Carolina has an opportunity for three Quad 1 wins (at Mississippi State, vs. LSU, and at Alabama) and two Quad 2 wins (at Georgia and vs. Mississippi State), with the remaining contests being Quad 3 games, except for the regular-season ending game against Vanderbilt in Nashville, which is the Gamecocks’ lone opportunity for a Quad 4 win remaining this season. After analyzing Carolina’s remaining schedule, the Gamecocks need to finish the rest of the regular season at a minimum of 6-2 with no more Quad 3 or 4 losses to become a bubble team. Finishing the regular season with a 20-11 (12-6 SEC) record would give Carolina a reasonable chance at the 4-seed in the SEC Tournament, securing a double-bye in Nashville. With 20 regular-season wins and a good showing (at least two wins) in the SEC Tournament, the Gamecocks’ ranking would move into the neighborhood of the top-50, which has seemingly been the magic number for Power Five teams since the NCAA moved to the NET rankings instead of the RPI. The next two weeks of games are huge for Carolina’s tournament chances, and anything worse than a record of 3-1 would put the nail in the coffin for their chances of an at-large bid. Beginning with Wednesday’s game against Georgia in Athens, every game remaining on the schedule has to be viewed as a must-win. Given the Gamecocks’ recent form, they can surely compete with every other team in the SEC, so a tournament berth is not impossible, although the losses to Boston and Stetson have left the margin for error razor thin for Frank Martin’s squad. Long story short, the Gamecocks have to keep winning and let the doubters and experts speak for themselv

(AP) South Carolina's Tyasha Harris really thought coming in she wasn't bothered by her losing history against UConn. Then Harris and the top-ranked Gamecocks won - and her attitude and emotions changed quickly. "Yes, this feels pretty good," she said with a grin. "My mind kind of changed," Harris had 19 points, Aliyah Boston dominated underneath and South Carolina held UConn to a record-low two points in the opening quarter on the way to a 70-52 win Monday night - its first-ever win over the fifth-ranked Huskies. Harris, a senior who was a freshman starter on South Carolina's national championship team in 2017, was 0-4 in her career against the Huskies (20-3). When the game ended, she thought about all the former Gamecocks who'd never celebrated a win in eight previous games over UConn. "I see all the people who started before us, people who hadn't beat UConn and I see how happy they are," Harris said. Things could get even happier before this season is over. It was South Carolina's 17th straight win and their ninth victory in 10 games against ranked opponents. So are the Gamecocks the clear-cut favorite for another national crown? "I feel like we're up there," Harris said. The Gamecocks (23-1) came in 0-8 all-time against UConn, seven of those defeats with national championship coach Dawn Staley in charge. But South Carolina took control immediately with its suffocating defense, limiting the Huskies to 1-of-16 shooting to lead 11-2 at the end of the first period. Since women's basketball changed to quarters in 2015-16, UConn's fewest points in a first quarter was 8 against Tulane in February 2016. The Huskies fewest in any quarter was 6 in a loss to Baylor earlier this year. Boston, the 6-foot-5 freshman, finished with 13 points and 12 rebounds, her 10th double-double this season. She also had three of South Carolina's eight steals and made her first 3-pointer this season. She had nine rebounds and two blocks the first 10 minutes as she continually altered shots whenever the Huskies tried to come inside. That early blitz was enough to energize the sold-out crowd of 18,000-plus and push the Gamecocks to their 17th straight victory - and their ninth win in 10 games this season against ranked opponents. UConn coach Geno Auriemma said his team's awful first quarter put them on their heels. He thought the Gamecocks sped up his young team, changing shots, defending hard on the perimeter and taking them out of rhythm. "If things don't go right early on, it's hard to right the ship," Auriemma said. South Carolina eventually grew the lead to 52-31 early in the second half. UConn cut things to 11 points on Crystal Dangerfield's jumper to start the fourth quarter. But Boston hit a basket and Mikiah Herbert Harrigan made a three to build back South Carolina's lead. Harris had a double-double, too, with a game-high 11 assists. Zia Cooke, another freshman, had 15 points for the Gamecocks. The Huskies (20-3) have been a thorn in Staley's side as she's built the Gamecocks into a championship program the past 12 years. It was UConn who ended South Carolina's last run at No. 1 with an 87-62 victory in 2015. And despite Staley's success - she's led the team to four Southeastern Conference crowns and the 2017 national championship - she acknowledged it "absolutely" bothered her not to beat the signature program in women's hoops. "I'm happy our team won, for a lot of reasons," Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley said. Dangerfield led the Huskies with a career-high 28 points. It was the second straight week the Huskies lost a highly regarded showcase game, falling 74-56 at home to No. 3 Oregon last Monday. THE BIG PICTURE UConn: The Huskies time among the top five in the rankings, which dates back to 2007, could be in jeopardy after this defeat. UConn slipped a spot in the rankings this week and should slide some more when the next vote is taken. South Carolina: The Gamecocks may have put the cherry on top of the NCAA Tournament top-overall seed sundae with this one. In case you're projecting, South Carolina will more than likely stay in its home state through the Elite Eight with a regional two hours up the road in Greenville. GAMECHANGER The Gamecocks netted three 3s early in the third quarter, including one each from the starting forwards, to stretch out a 21-point advantage. KEY STAT The Carolina defense smothered UConn in the first quarter, holding the Huskies to 1-of-16 from the field for two points, the lowest quarter total in UConn's program history. The Gamecocks locked down the fourth quarter as well – 5-of-15 shooting – to eliminate a comeback attempt from the Huskies. NOTABLES This win gives the Garnet and Black its ninth win over teams ranked in the AP Top 25, the most in the nation. The Gamecocks are 23-1, matching the 2015-16 squad's 24-game record for best in the Staley era. Tyasha Harris notched her first double-double of the season, 10th of her career, with 19 points and 11 assists. The senior finished with zero turnovers. Aliyah Boston earned her second-consecutive double-double with 12 points and 13 rebounds. The freshman averages a double against ranked teams. Zia Cooke dropped 15 points, including nine in the fourth quarter. Cooke averages 13.3 points against ranked foes. Mikiah Herbert Harrigan cracked double-digits for the second-straight game with 10 points. She also pulled down seven rebounds and blocked three shots. UP NEXT The Gamecocks (23-1, 10-0 SEC) return to SEC action when Auburn comes to town on Thursday. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. ET on the SEC Network.
