The Duck Commander Independence Bowl wasn’t fans’ last time to see Gamecock athletics in action in 2014. The South Carolina men’s basketball team will take on North Carolina A&T at the Colonial Life Arena Tuesday, Dec. 30, at 7 p.m.
The Gamecocks are off to a strong start, with a record of 7-3 against teams including Clemson and Oklahoma State. South Carolina also nearly beat No. 22 Baylor in one of their first games this season, ending in a score of 69-65.
The matchup between South Carolina and North Carolina A&T is the first ever for the two schools. The Aggies are 2-12; they snapped their 12-game losing streak Sunday against Division III opponent North Carolina Wesleyan.
The Gamecocks won their last game, a 78-52 victory in their inaugural meeting against the Coker College Cobras.
Tickets for the game can be purchased at the Colonial Life Arena or online at GamecocksOnline.com. Lower level seats are $20 each and upper level seats are $14 each.
