Dec. 15, 2004

Playing its first six games at home, South Carolina’s schedule gets tougher real fast. After a 72-70 win over South Florida on Tuesday, the Gamecocks (5-1) will depart Thursday evening for Lawrence, Kansas where they will play No. 2 Kansas (6-0) in famed Allen Fieldhouse on Sat., Dec. 18 at 8:00 pm (est).

The game will be featured on FOX SportsSouth with Gary Williams (play by play) and Barry Booker (color analyst) making the call.

The Gamecocks have never faced Kansas. Coach Odom is 1-1 against the Jayhawks. His win came at Wake Forest on Dec. 7, 2000 when the then-Wake Forest head coach led his team to a 84-53 pasting of KU. The loss occurred during the 1994 NCAA Tournament Second Round, when Kansas handed Wake a 69-58 loss in Lexington, Ky.

Kansas head coach Bill Self and Odom have never faced each other. Self has been the head coach at Kansas (2003-), Illinois (2000-03), Tulsa (1997-000) and Oral Roberts (1993-97).
