COLUMBIA − South Carolina women’s basketball will continue its series with UConn for the 2024-25 season, Gamecocks coach Dawn Staley confirmed at her media availability Friday.

The two teams have faced each other at least once every season since 2014-15, including the 2022 NCAA National Championship Game, which South Carolina won, 64-49.

South Carolina will welcome UConn to Columbia again next season, since the Gamecocks traveled to Connecticut in the 2020-21 and 2022-23 seasons. The teams played each other on neutral courts twice in 2021-22, and UConn last played at South Carolina in the 2019-20 season.

The No. 1 Gamecocks (22-0, 10-0 SEC) play host to the No. 9 Huskies (20-4, 12-0 Big East) on Sunday (2 p.m., ESPN) in front of a sold-out crowd at Colonial Life Arena.
