South Carolina to Open Title Defense in Las Vegas Against Michigan

COLUMBIA, S.C – After clinching the national championship title last season, South Carolina Gamecocks women’s basketball team is ready to kick off their new season against Michigan Wolverines. Set to take center stage on November 4th, the game is part of the prestigious Hall of Fame Series in Las Vegas. This promises to be a thrilling opener, much like their successful run begun with triumph over Notre Dame in Paris last year.

Excitement and anticipation for the season opener

The Gamecocks, under the leadership of their seasoned coach, Dawn Staley, displayed their electric skills and robust strategy throughout the perfect run of the last season leading them to a 38-0 victory and the national championship. The team is eager to begin their defending campaign, and the upcoming game against Michigan promises to be an engaging encounter.

Coach Staley expressed her enthusiasm, “We’re looking forward to adding our names to the slate this season. The Hall of Fame Series has become an incredible showcase for the country’s best teams in both men’s and women’s basketball…we’re excited to have another great destination and event to start our 2024-25 season.

Michigan and South Carolina: The history

The first game between the Wolverines and Gamecocks took place in 1995. The Gamecocks are currently leading the series with three wins, and are undefeated in the face-off to date. As both teams showcase significant depth and talent, this upcoming game holds special appeal for fans and basketball enthusiasts alike.

A Perfect Run for the Gamecocks

The success story of South Carolina’s woman’s basketball is unparalleled. Starting the last season in Paris with a victory over Notre Dame, the Gamecocks ended their season undefeated, making their mark in the history books as the tenth undefeated champions in women’s basketball.

The anticipation for a high-octane game is palpable as South Carolina initiates its title defense. The Hall of Fame Series in Las Vegas will serve as the canvas for an intense season opener. The odds and favoritism may lean towards the Gamecocks, given their undefeated run, but only the game’s outcome will tell if South Carolina can repeat their feat, or if Michigan Wolverines can upset the champions.
