South Carolina’s season-opening win streak has lifted the Gamecocks men’s team into the top 20.
USC was ranked No. 19 in the new AP Top 25 released Monday, continuing a steady climb for a program off to its best start in eight decades.
South Carolina (15-0, 2-0 SEC) is one of two remaining unbeaten men’s teams in Division I, along with SMU. The Gamecocks’ 15-game winning streak is the program’s longest since the 1969-70 team won 17 straight, and their run is the best to open a season since the 1933-34 squad started 17-0.
The USC women’s team (15-0, 3-0 SEC) remained No. 2 behind unanimous No. 1 Connecticut in the newest women’s poll released Monday. The combined 30-0 record by the South Carolina men’s and women’s programs is the best in SEC history.
The South Carolina men go for a 16th straight victory Wednesday night at Alabama, while the USC women put their winning streak on the line Thursday night at Kentucky, site of their last loss in SEC play.
