COLUMBIA (AP) — South Carolina has increased its reserve seating for women’s basketball games to accommodate the rise in season-ticket requests for next season.
The Gamecocks are coming off a 29-5 season in which they won the Southeastern Conference regular season title and earned the program’s first-ever No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. Coach Dawn Staley also brought in one of the country’s top recruiting classes, led by 6-foot-5 center A’ja Wilson who picked South Carolina over Connecticut, North Carolina and Tennessee.
The school said Wednesday it had received 4,709 requests for women’s season tickets, a nearly 12 percent increase over sales from last year. South Carolina added three sections for reserved seating at Colonial Life Arena giving them a total of 2,951 available.
