The Gamecocks beat NC A&T on Wednesday to improve to 8-5 and will host Princeton this weekend in the final non-conference series of the season. The Tigers did not begin their season until last weekend and are 0-4 after being swept by UNC-Wilmington. This weekend’s series was originally scheduled for Friday through Sunday, but the final two games will now be a Saturday doubleheader due to expected rainy weather on Sunday.
