You’ve got two chances to see the Gamecocks in action tomorrow at Colonial Life Arena – take in a matinee at 11 a.m. and catch the women’s basketball team against High Point (Being at work isn’t an excuse – you could always take a long lunch. I know I will). It’s also Field Trip Day as over 1,000 elementary school students will be at the game and will hear from Jerri Spurrier about healthy living and fitness.
For the nightcap, you can come watch the men’s basketball team host a talented Western Kentucky team at 7 p.m. Western Kentucky is favored to win the Sun Belt East this year and placed four players on the preseason all-conference teams. Senior guard A.J. Slaughter was picked as the Sun Belt Preseason Player of the Year. The Hilltoppers have appeared in the NCAA Tournament in the last two seasons as well. The first 2,000 fans will receive a Firehouse 3-point card. There will also be a Five Guys Tailgate for students prior to the game. 500 Garnet Army t-shirts will be given away also.
