South Carolina posted a pretty awesome hype video to its Instagram account today in anticipation of its Elite Eight matchup versus Florida.
Are the Gamecocks elite? The South Carolina basketball account posted a hype video on its Twitter account asking this very question, and after taking down Duke to advance to the Sweet 16, and defeating Baylor by an impressive 20-point margin, it’s kind of hard to say that they aren’t.
Check out the hype video below:
With Xavier’s elimination at the hands of Gonzaga last night, South Carolina is the last team remaining that can be considered a “Cinderella” team. The Gamecocks certainly don’t belong on paper. This is their first NCAA Tournament berth in 13 years, and their first appearance in the Elite Eight ever. So of course, they’re underdogs this afternoon, but they’ve been counted out since the very first round of the tournament. As we’ve seen time and time again, anything can happen in March.
The contest between South Carolina and Florida tips off at 2:20 p.m. E.T. and you can catch the game on CBS. Florida is a 3.5-point favorite and has has a 79.8 percent win probability, per ESPN’s BPI rating.
