South Carolina’s NCAA title parade set for April 13
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina and its fans will celebrate the program’s latest national title with a parade in downtown Columbia on April 13.
Columbia Mayor Daniel J. Rickenmann said on social media Wednesday there would be a parade through the main streets of the capital city starting at 6 p.m. next week. The parade will end with a rally at the Statehouse.
“I can’t wait to celebrate this latest national championship with y’all,” Rickenmann said in his post.
The Gamecocks captured the NCAA Tournament with a 64-49 win over UConn in Minneapolis last Sunday night. The team returned home Monday with a rally at its Colonial Life Arena.
South Carolina also won the NCAA Tournament in 2017 and was honored with a parade and celebration at the Statehouse.
The team was honored by South Carolina lawmakers inside the building on Wednesday.
