Pivotal Weekend for South Carolina's Postseason Hopes
The picture for the SEC Tournament is clear for the Gamecocks with three games left to play.
South Carolina makes the tournament with one win, either by the Gamecocks or by Mississippi State, which would eliminate a three-way tie scenario between the aforementioned two teams and Texas A&M.
Two Gamecock wins would guarantee that South Carolina would play in the 8-9 game, as it would give South Carolina the advantage in the subsequent tie with Auburn, who is one game ahead entering the series.
For Texas A&M to make the field over the Gamecocks, Auburn and LSU would have to sweep South Carolina and Mississippi State, respectively.
The winner of the first-round games would face either Alabama, Missouri or Tennessee, the only three teams who have a chance to win the regular-season crown.
