The Gamecocks will be without senior guard LeLe Grissett for the NCAA Tournament (Tracy Glantz)

The 6th ranked USC women are headed to the NCAA Tournament in San Antonio as the #1 seed in the Hemisfair Region and will face Mercer Sunday at 6:00 PM. A win will moved them forward to a meeting with either Florida State or Oregon State on Tuesday. The Gamecocks are in their 9th straight NCAA Tournament and are #1 seed for a 5th time.

The Gamecocks will play the tournament without veteran reserve guard LeLe Grissett. Coach Dawn Stanley announced the senior will miss the tournament while recovering from a lower leg injury suffered in the SEC Tournament earlier this month. Grissett averaged 7 points and 4 rebounds off the bench this season.
