It’s been 20 years since USC won its only SEC regular season men’s basketball championship. That Eddie Fogler coached team, led by the trio of BJ McKie, Melvin Watson and Larry Davis, went 15-1 in league playing and clinched the title with a Senior Day victory at Kentucky.
This weekend the Gamecocks are holding their annual men’s basketball reunion with that 1997 team, in particular, being recognized.
The players will be recognized at halftime of Saturday’s SEC battle between the Gamecocks and Georgia at the Colonial Life Arena.
Friday night on SportsTalk McKie shared his memories of that season which ended with a first round NCAA Tournament loss to Coppin State.
