By now, you’ve probably heard that Carolina Stadium will be the host site for both a Regional and Super-Regional series, because the Gamecocks were chosen as the fourth overall national seed.Â Columbia is one of 16 sites chosen as a host by the NCAA.
Stetson, North Carolina State, and Georgia Southern will round out the Columbia Regional.
To paraphrase Coach Tanner, this is a reward to the team for how hard they’ve worked this year.Â The Gamecocks only lost four games at home during the regular season.
To deal with the number of injuries, especially to key guys like Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Adam Matthews, the team has had and still be in this position is a testament to how strong a team they really are.
This is the 13th time that USC has been selected as a regional host, and their 27th appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
The Regional series will take place Friday, June 3rd through Monday, June 6th (if a final game is necessary).
