The Eagles are 5-6 and are coming off of a Sunday win over Albany. Winthrop began the season by sweeping Maine, but lost a series to Kennesaw State the next weekend. The Gamecocks will be the third ranked team that the Eagles have faced, as they lost games against both North Carolina and Coastal Carolina.
