The USC Women’s basketball team reached the Final Four of last year’s NCAA Tournament losing to Notre Dame in the national semi-finals. Their goal for this year’s tournament is simple: go above and beyond what they did last year.
USC is in the tournament for the 13th time and 5th straight season under Dawn Staley. The Gamecocks are 31-1 and went undefeated thru SEC play. They are ranked 2nd and 3rd nationally and are the #1 seed for their regional.
USC is hosting the first and second round games for its regional Friday and Sunday. The Gamecocks will play Jacksonville Friday night following the Kansas State vs George Washington game. The winner of Sunday’s game advances to the regional semi-finals in Sioux Falls, SD.
Thursday Staley along with Tiffany Mitchell and Alaina Coates met with the media to preview the tournament.
