The South Carolina Gamecocks will host Rhode Island, Duke, and UNC-Wilmington in the Columbia regional. The 1st seed Gamecocks will play the 4th seeded Rhode Island Rams (30-25) on Friday night at 7 PM on ESPN3. Duke and UNC-Wilmington will meet up Friday afternoon before the Gamecocks play.
In bigger news, the Gamecocks will (likely) be making a trip to Clemson in the Super Regionals. After a strong finish to the year, the Tigers received the #7 national seed and will host the Gamecocks if both teams win their respective regionals.
