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 three 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 reigning SEC champions have lost just twice on their home court in the last four seasons and featured four All-Americans, two SEC Players of the Year and 10 All-SEC selections in the last nine 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 drawing a sellout crowd of 18,000 fans on Feb. 8, 2016, against UConn.
