I mentioned several times last season how the scheduling kinda set up nicely for us - home vs CT, neutral vs Baylor, and home vs most of the toughest SEC opponents.

We'll most likely be @CT as well as obviously being @Oregon for 20-21. Don't know if MD comes to Columbia, SC or not. Duke would be an away game at Durham as well. The Clemson game would be home, but that's not an issue either way these days.

The Baylor game was part of the SEC-Big 12 Challenge - would we play Baylor again, this time in WACO, or would the match-ups shuffle?? Maybe a USC-Texas Dawn vs Vic match-up again??

Who knows at this stage of the off-season...

The Coyote ladies are sure looking forward to the USC game in Vermillion South Dakota this year!

I think almost everyone expected that final...but it doesn't mean it was going to happen. It would have been shocking if those two didn't meet in the finals.....but stranger things have happened. Baylor couldn't beat Iowa St...with Cox in the line up...UCONN lost to all three of those....so I have no clue what you were "expecting"....please elaborate....

I considered a Cocks/LadyBears final just as possible as the one you expected. Of course, seeding may have made it a semi.

I personally didn't put too much stock in the 1-pt Baylor loss at ISU.

That Oregon team was never great vs stellar defensive teams, of which Baylor was one.

Most of the folks at RebKell expected it, as the polls on the Game Discussion Forum indicate......

Laughing You mean, the Oregon team that beat Mississippi State TWICE, in one season? Razz

Being ranked 39th in scoring defense isn't stellar, in MY book, and when an opponent scores more points -88- in the semis on you, than it averages, well.... Wink

Yer such a silly goose! You always resort to obfuscational factoids to bolster your biases.

No doubt, Baylor was/is good at that. But they were certainly not as strong defensively as they were in last year's semi's when they beat Oregon by 5 (thank you Kalani Brown). Their defensive scoring *percentages* don't mean all THAT much, given Baylor plays in a much weaker conference than Oregon or MS-St. But ya....they're good.

With that prowess AND their offensive prowess, Baylor shoulda thumped Oregon....but didn't. We can parse coulda/shouldas all day long, but I am uber-confident that Oregon's superior offense would have prevailed this year, had they met.

And the BEST part is....YOU KNOW IT, TOO! Wink Cool

Coach Dawn Staley hasn't let the quarantine in place orders around the nation hold her back, as she and her staff have been active on the recruiting trails.

Staley has hinted at 4 commits coming within the month of May, but no names had been offered, and no prospects made any announcements. The questions as to who they may be run the gamut of possibly transfers, commits from the 2022 class, or all 4 being of the 2021 cycle.

The first "birdie" has now gone public - 5* 6-0 G Aubryanna "Bree" Hall out of Dayton, OH. has announced her commitment today to South Carolina. Hall is the #10 G and #26 overall prospect on ESPN's Hoopgurlz' rankings for 2021.

Will the others now make their moves, and announce as well??

The second "birdie" Saniya Rivers went public today even though that cat was out of the bag a couple of weeks ago. It's funny to see Tenn fans on Vol Nation going in sour grape mode and UConn fans on the the Boneyard going stir crazy because Azzi Fudd hasn't committed to UConn and other recruits that they don't "want" are committing elsewhere.

The fourth and final "birdie" has made her college destination official today with 5* and ESPN overall #13 PG Raven Johnson out of Atlanta, GA committed to South Carolina. All 4 projected names for each of the tweeted "birdies" by head coach Dawn Staley have been borne true, with the Gamecocks now having a 2021 class of 5* Saniya Rivers, 5* Sania Feagin, 5* Bree Hall, and 5* Johnson.

Not sure if this class will warrant the overall #1 ranking that the 2019 class did, but it's sure to be a top 10, and a strong contender to be a top 5 class...

That will certainly be a major battle to look forward to. The 'Yotes gave the Gamecocks everything they could deal with. How does the team look in terms of returning players?
