March 16, 2009

The University of South Carolina and Davidson College will compete in a doubleheader of sorts on Tuesday, March 16, 2009, in Columbia. The two baseball squads will square off at Carolina Stadium at 7 p.m., while the men’s basketball teams will meet in an ESPN2 nationally-televised game about a mile away at the Colonial Life Arena, also at 7 p.m.

After ESPN determined the start time of the men’s basketball game, the South Carolina Athletics Department considered moving the first pitch of the baseball contest to earlier in the day to accommodate fans who would like to see both contests. Several logistical factors, including academic concerns for both teams, additional time needed to get the playing field ready following the recent rains, event staffing issues for security, ticket operations and concessionaires, and parking availability in the business lots around the baseball stadium, prevented any change.

Tickets for the opening round of the postseason NIT are on sale now. Ticket prices stand at $18 for lower bowl seats, $15 for upper bowl seats and $4 dollars for student tickets. Fans can buy tickets online at, by visiting the Gamecock ticket office at Colonial Life Arena or by calling 1-800-4SC-FANS.
