COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina Athletics is launching its “Drive for 5” women’s basketball season ticket campaign this season. Inspired by head coach Dawn Staley’s jersey number during her Hall of Fame playing career, the program looks to bring at least 5,000 fans to Gamecock women’s basketball every game.
In the last two seasons, South Carolina has gone from 43rd to 26th in the nation in average attendance, bringing in nearly 4,000 fans per game in 2012-13. Staley is committed to continuing that momentum this season, issuing the challenge to Gamecock Nation to support her consistently improving program.
The Gamecocks have posted back-to-back 25-win seasons under Staley, a first for the program since the 1978-79 and 1979-80 seasons. The program has steadily increased its overall or SEC win totals each season since Staley took the helm, culminating in last season’s school-record 11 SEC victories.
Season tickets for 2013-14 are $50 for a reserved seat or $100 for four general admission tickets. Visit www.GamecocksOnline.com/tickets or call 1-800-4SC-FANS to purchase season tickets.
