Columbia, S.C. – After finishing 14-11 and making it to the round of 32 at the NCAA Tournament, Coach Arlo Elkins and the Gamecocks are looking to make more progress in the 2003-04 season. Elkins set the 2003 fall schedule and has released a tentative 2004 schedule for the Gamecocks on Thursday morning.

The fall will be very busy for the Gamecocks as they will compete in six tournaments. USC opens the fall season in Greenville competing in the Furman Fall Classic on September 26-28. The following weekend, Carolina will host the Lady Gamecock Classic. USC will then travel to Winston-Salem, NC to compete in the Rolex Regional Tournament which will feature the best players in the southeastern region. The Gamecocks will then host the Southern Intercollegiate Tournament from October 31st thru November 2nd. The Gamecocks then hit the road for their final fall tournament in Atlanta, GA. In Atlanta, the Gamecocks will do battle in the SEC Individual Fall Championships.

Carolina will start the spring season on February 4 at home against Furman. After facing the Paladins the Gamecocks head to Ann Arbor, Michigan to face the Maryland Terrapins and Michigan Wolverines. The Gamecocks will face Clemson on the 14th at home before opening their SEC schedule. During the SEC portion of the schedule, the Gamecocks will face only one non-conference opponent. USC will face Harvard on March 13th. Carolina will face Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Alabama, and Auburn on the road while the remaining SEC schools will face the Gamecocks in Columbia.
