Shaw remains undefeated at home after final game in Williams-Brice
The South Carolina women’s soccer team was unable to rewrite the script Friday night as Stanford ousted the Gamecocks in the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three years.
After the 70-10 squashing of Coastal Carolina on Saturday, coach Steve Spurrier said it was nice to put on a performance like that this late in the season, something the Gamecocks haven’t had since a 69-24 win against Troy in 2010.
Coastal Carolina is a Football Championship Subdivision school, but its offense was not something to take lightly, putting up 45.5 points and a little over 500 yards per game before Saturday’s game at Williams-Brice Stadium. Those averages for the Chanticleers will dwindle after South Carolina handed them a 70-10 loss.
South Carolina men’s basketball coach Frank Martin has the philosophy of if you do what you’re supposed to do in practice, then you will get a chance to do what you’re supposed to do in game action.
1. Coastal has a prolific offense that averages more than 45 points per game. However, they will be facing their biggest challenge of the season against South Carolina. With that said, how can the Chanticleers have some success against the Gamecock defense?
Although Saturday’s matchup with Coastal Carolina carries no significance in terms of standings, a South Carolina win would be much more than just that for senior quarterback Connor Shaw, as he looks to surpass Todd Ellis’ record for most wins in school history.
On the surface, No. 11 South Carolina’s meeting with Coastal Carolina looks like a break in the schedule between the end of SEC play and the annual battle with Clemson, but for a number of reasons, coach Steve Spurrier said he and his players have their eyes fixed straight ahead to Saturday’s game against the Chanticleers.
