  5. 2021 South Carolina Gamecocks Baseball Official Game Thread South Carolina vs Alabama 2021 SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT Tuesday May 25, 2021 2:00 PM Hoover, AL First Round #7 SOUTH CAROLINA GAMECOCKS (33-20, 16-14) VS #10 ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE (29-22, 12-17 ) 2:00 P.M. | HOOVER, AL | HOOVER METROPOLITAN STADIUM SERIES HISTORY | WATCH: | LISTEN: 107.5 The Game | Live Stats COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The South Carolina Gamecocks prepare to travel to Hoover Alabama to participate in the 2021 Southeastern Conference Tournament. The Gamecocks will face the Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2nd game of the first round at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium - the game's first pitch is scheduled at 1:00 PM CT (2:00 PM ET) and will be televised on the SEC Network with Tom Hart, Ben McDonald and Chris Burke on the call. The game will also be on the Gamecock Radio Network with Derek Scott and Tommy Moody calling the action. The Gamecocks are coming off of a close series loss to 4th-ranked Tennessee in Founders Park: after splitting the two first games of the series, they fell 5-4 in the deciding game with a man in scoring position and only 1 out in the bottom 9th inning. PROBABLE PITCHING ROTATION Tuesday South Carolina CJ Weins (Jr. RHP) 1-0, 1.93 ERA, 9 BB, 11 SO Alabama Tyler Ras (Jr., RHP) 6-4, 5.42 ERA, 20 BB, 53 SO SETTING THE SEC TOURNAMENT STAGE South Carolina comes into the tournament as the 4th ranked team out of the SEC Eastern Division and the 7th Seed overall, while Alabama is the 5th ranked team in the Western Division, and the 10th overall Seed. The winner of this game will face the #2 Seed Tennessee Volunteers in Wednesday's 2nd Rounds. The Vols received a first Round bye. In order to reach the SEC Championship Game, the Gamecocks would have to play six games in as many days, and win the first five. SCOUTING ALABAMA The Crimson Tide were swept by Mississippi State this past weekend, and are 1-7 in losing their past 3 SEC series to the Bulldogs as well as LSU and Vanderbilt. They had one game versus Vanderbilt cancelled due to inclement weather. Alabama is led by Sam Praytor with 13 home runs and 44 RBI, while Zane Denton leads the team with a .317 batting average. Dylan Smith (1-7, 4.04 ERA) leads the Tide with 14 starts, 82.1 innings pitched and 100 strikeouts, while Tyler Ras (6-4, 5.42 ERA) leads the team in wins. Chase Lee (6-0, 1.38 ERA) is tied with Ras in wins and leads the Tide with 7 saves. SERIES VS. ALABAMA Carolina holds a 35-27 series advantage on Alabama heading into the tournament. The Gamecocks have won 16 of the last 22 games against the Tide, with the last win the sole one of their last series in Tuscaloosa 5-4 in 2019 in extra innings to prevent the sweep. In that game, TJ Hopkins would score the go-ahead run in the top 12th inning on a wild pitch. Brett Kerry would get the win after pitching the final 5.2 innings of scoreless baseball, with 4 strikeouts and only 1 walk. The Gamecocks and Crimson Tide have faced each other three times in the SEC Tournament, with the Tide having the 2 to 1 edge. One of those wins was in the Championship Game in 2002 that the Tide won 6-2. The other 2 SECT games were both opening round games - in 2003, the Tide would upset the #2 Seed Gamecocks 9-7, then in 2009 the #5 Seed Gamecocks would win 9-5 in 11 innings over the #4 Seeded Tide.

  7. 2021 SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP Bon Secours Wellness Arena, Greenville, SC #2 Seed SOUTH CAROLINA (21-4, 14-2) vs #4 Seed GEORGIA (20-5, 10-5) SEC TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONSHIP #7/7 SOUTH CAROLINA (21-4, 14-2) VS. #16/21 GEORGIA (20-5, 10-5) 2:00 P.M. | GREENVILLE, S.C. | BON SECOURS WELLNESS ARENA Bon Secours Wellness Arena No Bag Policy | South Carolina Game Notes (PDF) | WATCH: ESPN2 | LISTEN: 107.5 The Game | LISTEN ONLINE STREAM: 107.5 The Game | Live Stats GREENVILLE, SC -- The #7/7 South Carolina Gamecocks have returned to a game that has become quite familiar to them: the Championship Game of the 2021 Southeastern Conference Tournament. They will face off against the #16/21 Georgia Bulldogs (20-5, 10-5) in today's game which tips off at 2:00 PM, and is televised on ESPN2. Today's game will be the sixth championship game appearance in the last seven years for the Gamecocks. They are 5-0 in the previous games, including a SEC record four consecutive championship titles from 2015 through 2018. The Gamecocks reached the Final by defeating #3 Seed Tennessee 67-52 Saturday night, as Zia Cooke scored 17 points and Aliyah Boston had 15 points and 11 rebounds, to lead the way. Georgia advanced by upsetting the #1 seeded Texas A&M 74-68 in their semifinal game Saturday. THE BIG PICTURE Tennessee: The Lady Vols used to own this event, winning 17 times between 1980 and 2014. Now, their run of missing the finals has grown to six straight years. Tennessee will have some work ahead to prepare for what they hope is a deep NCAA Tournament run. South Carolina: While the Gamecocks have a 13-game win streak over Georgia, the Bulldogs are showing patience, versatility and their own ability to regroup quickly as they did to defeat Texas A&M. GAMECHANGER Trailing 11-10 at the 4:38 point of the first quarter, sophomore Aliyah Boston drained a three to jumpstart a 19-2 run over the final 4:18 of the quarter that put the Garnet and Black in front for good. Senior LeLe Grissett accounted for four points in the run, while sophomore Zia Cooke scored the final six points of the quarter herself. KEY STAT The Gamecocks won the turnover battle on Saturday, 18-13, and capitalized on those to the tune of 19 points, eclipsing the six points off turnovers tallied by the Lady Vols. NOTABLES South Carolina continued its season long streak of not being outrebounded, this time holding a 44-33 edge over the Lady Vols, who tied the Gamecocks in rebounds in the regular-season meeting. Tonight's game was the 17th this season in which Carolina held a double-digit rebounding advantage. Sophomore Zia Cooke dropped eight of her team-high 17 points in the first quarter, including the last six points of the quarter to cap off Carolina's 19-2 quarter closing run. Cooke has cracked double figures in four straight SEC Tournament games dating back to last season's semifinal against Arkansas. Sophomore Aliyah Boston hit her offensive groove early with eight points in the first quarter and secured her 14th double-double of the season with 15 points and 11 rebounds in addition to her three assists and two blocks. Boston has notched a double-double in three of her five career SEC Tournament games. Junior Destanni Henderson did most of her damage in the second quarter, with her first three pushing Carolina's lead to 19, and her second three slamming the breaks on a 7-0 Tennessee run. Henderson finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

The 2020 SEC Tournament champion, South Carolina has won five of the last six tournament titles and is the only team in league history to win four consecutive titles at the event (2015-18). Under Staley, the Gamecocks are 5-2 in SEC Tournament semifinal games. South Carolina is 7-2 in SEC Tournament games played in Greenville and won two of their five titles in Bon Secours Wellness Arena (2017, 2020). The Gamecocks are 4-2 all-time when playing the tournament as the No. 2 seed, including three wins en route to the 2018 title. They were also seeded second in 2002 and 2019. South Carolina is 2-3 against Tennessee in the SEC Tournament, but the Gamecocks have won the last two meetings at the event – 2015 Championship Game (62-46), 2018 Quarterfinals (73-62). GAMECOCK NOTABLES While the Lady Vols claimed the regular-season meeting between the two teams, South Carolina has won three of the last four outings against Tennessee and each of the last two SEC Tournament matchups. Friday night against Alabama, South Carolina turned nine offensive rebounds into 16 second-chance points. On the season, the Gamecocks, who rank fifth in the nation in offensive rebounds per game (16.7), average 1.03 points per offensive rebound while limiting opponents to just .83 points per offensive rebound. The Gamecocks' ball movement Friday night helped their field goal percentage skyrocket. South Carolina shot 48.4 percent from the field with 14 assists, their highest numbers in both areas since shooting 49.2 percent with 15 assists at Auburn on Feb. 4. Junior point guard Destanni Henderson continues to thrive in the SEC Tournament, following up her 2020 All-Tournament selection with 18 points and five assists Friday night. Over the last two tournament, Henderson is averaging 14.3 point and 4.8 assists, shooting 54.8 percent (23-40) from the field Aliyah Boston's rebounding dominance in the SEC Tournament as she is pulling in 11.8 rebounds per career game at the event, in addition to shooting 52.9 percent from the field (18-34). Boston has two double-doubles in four career SEC Tournament games. Sophomore guard Zia Cooke has a team-high five 20-point games this season, including in two of her last four outings to average 18.9 points in that stretch. Her game-high 22 points against Alabama Friday night marked her first 20-point game in an SEC Tournament. In just her sophomore season, Aliyah Boston already ranks 10th on the SEC active career rebounding list (592) and fourth on the blocks list (154). Her block total ranks sixth in Gamecock history, and her 68 blocks this season are eight in the program's single-season record book. Boston's 26 career double-doubles are 10th in school history, and with 16 of them coming in SEC regular-season play, she is third in program history, trailing just Alaina Coates (27) and A'ja Wilson (21). Destanni Henderson's three 3-pointers Friday night against Alabama was her fifth such game this season and her second 3-of-3 outside shooting night of 2020-21. She is the team's most accurate 3-point shooter at 44.3 percent. https://gamecocksonline.com/news/2021/3/6/womens-basketball-sec-tournament-semifinal-saturday-vs-tennessee.aspx
  9. This will be the catch-all thread for the 2021 Women's Basketball Southeastern Conference Tournament. Only Gamecock games will get their dedicated game threads - all other SECT games and relevant news will get updated in this thread, if possible. Hopefully it's a full and long-standing thread, right up to the South Carolina Gamecocks winning their 6th SECT Championship in 7 seasons! The SEC Office has finalized the bracket for the 2021 Conference Tournament at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, SC: The Gamecocks will have some challenges: we beat Alabama twice this season by 17 pts and then by 24 pts. That should not be a problem. Missouri was a 15-pt. win and also shouldn't be a big issue. So the 1st RD for us - the Quarterfinals Friday - should be fine. The Semifinals Saturday will be where the challenges arrive. The #11 Seed Mississippi Rebels lost to USC recently by 25 pts and looked bad doing it. It was their 3rd SEC loss in a row that included a 10-pt. loss to Arkansas in Fayettville. They looked like they were collapsing, then they upset #19 ranked Kentucky Sunday in Lexington! But then, they had already beat UK earlier in the season, and I think were able to out-match the Wildcats on the boards like we tend to do, and UK's top rebounder is Rhyne Howard, and she's also their top scorer and when she peters out late in games, the entire team seems to peter out as well. I still think #6 Seed Arkansas will be too much offensive firepower for the Rebels, even though the Razorbacks' defense is by design not strong. The Razorbacks have had one of the better seasons in 2020-21 they've had in recent years, while though Ole Miss has improved over last season, they've still struggled going 10-10 on their season. So I expect to see Arkansas face the Vols in the Quarterfinals. For our own Quarterfinal, as I stated above I think that we should be fine against either #10 Seed Missouri or #7 Seed Alabama if the team comes ready to play. I think we should expect to see the Vols in our semifinal game. TENNESSEE: of course that's a loss that still stings. It ended a program-record regular-season SEC win streak. After moving out to a 12-pt halftime lead, Tennessee jumped on the Gamecocks in the 3rd Period and played like the team with the most energy and the most desire. The Gamecocks played like they were just dog-tired - especially in the late stages of the game - and shot 10-33 (30.3%) after halftime. On the other side of the bracket, the biggest contenders are of course #1 Seed Texas A&M and #4 Georgia. I don't think either Auburn or Florida will put up much of a protest, and Kentucky looks like they want the season to end already, although they have beaten UGA earlier. I think UGA has more to play for than UK seems to, and should win this game. Texas A&M: the Aggies only have 1 loss on the season, and that was to LSU. That seemed to have been a wake-up call for the Aggies, who have steam-rolled the rest of the season to the SEC title. Miss State must feel it is decades removed from their successes under Vic Schaefer, and sadly Nikki McCray-Penson's first season as Bulldog head coach has been pretty rough. They ended their regular-season losing to Missouri by 20 pts in Starkville. I can't believe this team will enter the tournament with much fire. BUT the last game that Miss State DID win, they won over LSU. So again, who knows? Does LSU want to see Texas A&M again?? I bet the Aggies sure want to see THEM again. I feel the Aggies' road to the Championship Game is the smoother one between them and USC. The Gamecocks will have to find some resolve they haven't shown a lot of during the season, to get back to their 6th SECT Championship Game in the last 7 seasons. Their losses to Tennessee and the Aggies were by 8 points each: certainly they have the talent to win this whole thing. They just have to want to win it more than the other teams.....

Unfortunately, the 2020 game has officially been canceled, ESPN Events announced Wednesday. “Unfortunately we will have to wait another year to present the Las Vegas Bowl in its new home,” John Saccenti, Las Vegas Bowl executive director, said in the announcement. “This was a difficult decision but the right one considering that our game was founded nearly three decades ago to help drive tourism to the Entertainment Capital of the World during the month of December. We are looking forward to making our bowl week bigger and better than ever in 2021.” December’s game was slated to be the first bowl game played in Allegiant Stadium, the new stadium near the Las Vegas Strip and home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders. The 2020 game was slated to feature a new matchup between the Pac-12 Conference and Southeastern Conference, as part of a rotating cycle that also includes the Big Ten Conference.
  14. The 2020 Women's Soccer season is underway. Last season, the Gamecocks were picked to finish 2nd in the conference behind the Texas A&M Aggies. They would complete the conference schedule undefeated at 7-0-3, but fail to win the regular season title on points, and enter the SEC Tournament as the #3 Seed. But they would go on to win the SEC Tournament for the 2nd time in program history, defeating the #1 Seed Arkansas Razorbacks 1-0 in the Championship match, and ride the momentum to the NCAA Tournament Quarterfinals for the 3rd time in 4 seasons. This season, seven starters return, and the Gamecocks were picked to finish 2nd again, this time behind Arkansas. Coming into yesterday (Friday October 16th), the 15th-ranked Gamecocks were the top SEC East Division team in the COVID-19-shortened season of just conference opponents, at 3-1-0 (3-1-0), and the 3rd-ranked Razorbacks the top SEC West Division team at 4-0-0 (4-0-0).

  15. SEC cancels the rest of spring sports because of coronavirus outbreak March 17, 2020 Four University of South Carolina athletic teams still had games scheduled after the SEC’s April 15 deadline following the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Now none of those teams even had the glimmer of hope they might finish things out. The SEC officially ended all spring sports seasons in response to the rapidly spreading worldwide pandemic. There had been some small hope teams could reconvene later in the year despite NCAA spring championships having already been canceled. The tweet read: “The @SEC has announced all regular season conference and non-conference competitions are cancelled for remainder of the 2019-20 athletic year, including all Spring FB Games and remaining SEC championship events, due to continuing developments related to the coronavirus.” Only Gamecocks baseball, softball and men’s and women’s track had regular season events past the deadline. “This is a difficult day for all of us, and I am especially disappointed for our student-athletes,” SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said in a statement. “The health and well-being of our entire conference community is an ongoing priority for the SEC as we continue to monitor developments and information about the COVID-19 virus.”

This is the fourth time South Carolina has earned the No. 1 seed in the SEC Tournament (2014-2017). Under head coach Dawn Staley, the Gamecocks are 6-2 in SEC Tournament quarterfinals. South Carolina is 3-2 in the SEC Tournament games played in Greenville with all three wins coming en route to the 2017 tournament title. GAMECOCK NOTABLES South Carolina has posted two of the four 16-0 SEC seasons in league history – 2016, 2020. The 2020 SEC Regular-Season Championship is the Gamecocks' fifth in the last seven seasons and second in the four-year careers of seniors Tyasha Harris and Mikiah Herbert Harrigan. The 2020 SEC coaches' awards were littered with Gamecocks, headlined by Aliyah Boston as the Freshman and Defensive Player of the Year and Dawn Staley as the SEC Coach of the Year for the fourth time in her 12-year career at South Carolina. Boston and Tyasha Harris were on the All-SEC First Team, and Mikiah Herbert Harrigan picked up All-SEC Second-Team recognition. Zia Cooke joined Boston on the All-Freshman Team. Starting three freshmen throughout the season, South Carolina has dominated the 10th-toughest schedule in the country, recording more wins over top-50 RPI teams (14) and top-25 RPI opponents (8) than any other team. The Gamecocks' 11 wins over AP Top-25 opponents leads the nation by two and includes four wins over top-10 teams. The SEC's top defensive team, allowing just 55.7 points per game overall (19th in the nation) and 58.3 points per SEC game, had just one entry on the SEC All-Defensive Team in Aliyah Boston. The Gamecocks have held their opponent under 60 points 21 times this season, including 10 SEC games and six games against nationally ranked opponents. The last five games have seen the most veteran Gamecocks surging with Mikiah Herbert Harrigan leading the team with 13.8 points per game on 51.1 percent shooting and 2.0 blocks per game in that stretch. Tyasha Harris moves up to third in scoring over the last five wins at 11.4 points per game while averaging 6.2 assists. Junior LeLe Grissett has surged off the bench as well, adding 8.4 points per game on 73.9 percent (17-of-23) shooting. The three Naismith award semifinalists were announced this week, all with South Carolina entries. Aliyah Boston and Tyasha Harris are among the 10 semifinalists for the Naismith Trophy. Boston is on the Defensive Player of the Year list, and Staley is in the running for Coach of the year. Freshman Aliyah Boston has put together one of the best freshman seasons in Gamecock history, closely mirroring the immediate impact of Alaina Coates. Boston joined Coates as the only SEC Freshman of the Year winners in league history to also earn another of the league's highest individual honors as she added Defensive Player of the Year honors. Boston has broken Coates' South Carolina freshman records for blocked shots (79), double-doubles (12) and double-doubles vs. SEC (7) in a season and claimed Aleighsa Welch's freshman season offensive rebounds record (109). She is out-scoring Coates (12.9-12.3) on better shooting (.614-.612) and averages more rebounds (10.2-8.5) and blocked shots (2.3-2.3). BY THE NUMBERS 26.5 South Carolina's bench averaged 26.5 points in SEC play, accounting for 31.9 percent of the Gamecocks' 83.1 points per game. 30.1 Between her scoring (12.0 ppg) and points scored off her assists (12.6 ppg), Tyasha Harris has her hands only 30.1 percent of the Gamecocks' 81.7 ppg. 43.5 South Carolina is second in the country with a 43.5 percent offensive rebounding rate, which it has turned into 15.9 second-chance points per game. 67.4 With 41.6 points in the paint pr game, 67.4 percent of the Gamecocks' made field goals have come in the lane. 81.7 Scoring 81.7 points per game, this season's team in on pace to break the program record for scoring average (80.2 ppg in 1988-89). 138 Dawn Staley's 138 SEC regular-season victories ranks sixth among all-time SEC coaches.
