Women's Basketball to Change Opponent for Home Opener
COLUMBIA, S.C. – The University of South Carolina’s women’s basketball series with BYU, with games scheduled for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 seasons, has been canceled.
The Gamecocks are working on finalizing another opponent for their Nov. 7 season opener at Colonial Life Arena.
Statement from South Carolina Head Coach Dawn Staley
“As a head coach, my job is to do what’s best for my players and staff. The incident at BYU has led me to reevaluate our home-and-home, and I don’t feel that this is the right time for us to engage in this series.”
Statement from South Carolina Athletics Director Ray Tanner
“Dawn and I have discussed her thoughts on the situation. I support Dawn and all of our coaches in their right to schedule games and opponents that are best for their teams.”
