COLUMBIA, SC – Hip Hop returns this weekend!!

In October, the Philadelphia 76ers came to Columbia and brought along its award-winning, crowd-pleasing mascot — Hip Hop. He wowed spectators with his acrobatic skills and inflatable character and left everyone wanting more. Fans need not wait any longer because this weekend, Hip Hop will be back in Columbia to perform not once, but twice at the Colonial Center.

Fans won’t want to miss the chance to see the 76ers mascot in action when the USC men’s basketball team takes on Georgia Sat., Jan. 14th at 3:00, then again when the Carolina women host Vanderbilt on Sun., Jan. 15, at 3 pm.
