USC women to play game at Carolina Coliseum
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina women’s basketball team will play a game at the old Carolina Coliseum this season because of a scheduling conflict. The Gamecocks game on January 17 against LSU had to be moved because Colonial Life Arena wasn’t available. Deputy Athletics Director Charles Waddell says scheduling basketball games for this season was especially hard because the Southeastern Conference added Missouri and Texas A&M. South Carolina hasn’t played at the 12,000-seat Carolina Coliseum since the new arena opened in 2002. Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley says the school will market the game as a one-time return to a historic venue that opened in 1968.
