WEDNESDAY SPORTS: Gamecocks host Texas A&M tonight
South Carolina hosts Texas A&M on Wednesday for the second matchup between the two schools this season. The Aggies posted a 75-67 victory over the Gamecocks just two weeks ago in College Station. Tip-off Wednesday is set for 7:00 PM.
Tuesday was Super Bowl media day, an event that’s billed as an interview opportunity with the team members who’ll play in the NFL championship game, but has turned over the years into more of a spectacle. Tuesday didn’t disappoint, with an Austrian man dressed as Mozart, a guy in a Waldo costume, Nickelodeon’s Pick Boy, and Internet dancing sensation Lil Terrio all wandering around the Prudential Center, home of the NHL’s New Jersey Devils. Actors Nick Cannon and Michelle Williams were also there, mingling with the players and the more than 6,000 journalists and members of the media from all over the world. Weird questions are the norm, and it was no different Tuesday for the members of the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.
The Carolina Panthers have granted coach Ron Rivera a 3-year contract extension. Rivera led the Panthers to a 12-5 record in 2013.
The snow in the Golden Corner forced the postponement Tuesday of High School basketball games. The only make-up games we’re certain of at this time is West-Oak hosting Emerald, which is now set for February 5. Tamassee-Salem will face McCormick at that same day with girls games at both schools starting at 6:00 PM.
