TheBigSpur

Carolina beat PC on Tuesday night to improve to 28-19 (11-13 SEC) on the season. The Gamecocks are back at Founders Park tonight to host a game against the Liberty Flames.

Liberty is 29-17 (14-7 Big South) after whipping Elon 16-6 Tuesday night. The Flames are a dangerous team that already has wins over both Kentucky and UNC, so the Gamecocks will need to play well to avoid a midweek loss that would hurt their postseason chances.
