COLUMBIA, S.C. — The annual South Carolina Men’s Basketball Legends Weekend honoring Gamecock greats will be held later this week, Feb. 3-4, and Gamecock Athletics asks fans to help us sell out Colonial Life Arena for the border rivalry game versus Georgia. Fans are also encouraged to wear white, to help “White Out” the Arena for the 2 p.m. ET contest on Saturday versus the Bulldogs.

Weekend events will celebrate all Gamecock Legends, and highlight the 20th anniversary of the 1997 SEC championship team. The championship squad will be honored at halftime of the South Carolina versus Georgia contest.

The annual Legends Weekend events begin on Friday evening with a reception in downtown Columbia, and continue on Saturday morning when the Legends attend shoot around before a Tip-Off Club Brunch honoring the group. An autograph session will be held pre-game with members of the 1997 SEC championship team on the concourse at Colonial Life Arena, before Carolina hosts Georgia at 2 p.m. The 1997 championship team will be highlighted in a halftime celebration on the court.

Fans should visit or call 1-800-4SC-FANS to purchase tickets.
