She gave WIS a sick note excusing fans from work because the team “simply can’t do it without our FAMS,” according to the note.

The game — which is the first round of the tournament — will be held at Colonial Life Arena Friday at 2 p.m. as the 1-seed Gamecocks take on the winner of the First Four matchup against Sacred Heart and Presbyterian.

South Carolina recently won the SEC regular season and tournament championships — the second straight undefeated regular season for the team.

The women’s team brought home national championships in 2017 and 2022 under Staley’s reign.


They’ve been in the NCAA Tournament every season since 2011-12, with the exception of when the tournament was canceled in 2020.

The fans have been along for the ride, packing arenas and hosting watch parties.

Staley told WIS it’s an honor to be their team.
