Proud Home of Gamecock Basketball

Gamecock Women’s Basketball

Colonial Life Arena is home to 2017 NCAA Women’s Basketball National Champion South Carolina and has become one of the most feared home courts in the nation.

The Gamecocks have led the nation in attendance the last five seasons and used the power of the crowd – routinely over 10,000 strong – to establish a perennial presence on the national scene. The four-time SEC champions have lost just eight times on their home court in the last six seasons and featured the 2018 National Player of the Year, four All-Americans, two SEC Players of the Year and 11 All-SEC selections in the last 11 seasons under head coach Dawn Staley.

The Gamecocks have hosted NCAA Tournament games at Colonial Life Arena since 2015 in addition to regular-season meetings with nationally recognized programs, including three sellout crowds of 18,000 fans in the last four seasons.
