Season over: Gamecocks miss out on NCAA tournament

May 29, 2017

A strong showing in Hoover was not enough to sneak South Carolina into the NCAA tournament.

The Gamecocks will not be a part of the postseason for the second time in three years after making it 15 consecutive years before that.

USC was a bubble team entering Monday due to a 13-17 SEC record, a No. 32 RPI and a No. 10 strength of schedule.

With an RPI of 32, South Carolina is the highest RPI team to not make the NCAA tournament. The Gamecocks, Miami, UConn and Old Dominion were the first four teams left out of the field, according to ESPN and the NCAA.

Losing eight consecutive series to close the year ultimately cost South Carolina.

The Gamecocks finish the season 35-25.
