The NCAA Women’s Tournament starts Friday for the Gamecocks.

They get to play one last weekend in Columbia, and it starts against North Carolina A&T. 

Every team goes into the tournament with a different mindset, and Carolina likes the kind of mindset they have right now.

Head coach Dawn Staley said, “At this time in post season play, the team that plays most like themselves early on is going to be the team that has the most success.”

Aja Wilson said, “I think going into the SEC Tournament we were really focused because we knew that was us. That is what we do.”

The Gamecocks tip off Friday night at 7:30.
