If you’ve been longing for a hardwood hardwood from the South Carolina men’s basketball team, you’ve left seriously in recent weeks – and it’s not going to change for the immediate future.
After the program originally suspended activities earlier this month, a second wave of positive coronavirus tests has derailed its attempts to return to court, leading to the suspension of today’s match against SC State.
Other games that have been accidents with this scheduled accident include races against George Washington and Wofford and the rivalry clash against Clemson. While the George Washington and Wofford games were suspended, the Gamecocks and Tigers hope to meet at a later date this season.
South Carolina has not played since a 77-67 loss against then-No. 10 Houston on December 5th. Gamecock’s next scheduled match is their SEC opener on December 29 in Kentucky, but given that it’s only a week from now and also involves travel, I would not bet that it goes as planned. Currently, the school has not provided any other updates on testing, a possible timeline for return to action, etc. We may have to wait until 2021 to see Gamecocks again when they host Florida A&M on January 2nd.
