The celebration to honor South Carolina’s women’s basketball team has been postponed.
As announced in a release, a tornado watch and the possibility for severe weather in the Columbia, S.C., area forced university officials to delay the celebration event, which was scheduled for Monday night. Details for a rescheduled celebration to be held in conjunction with a parade will be announced later in the week.
The Gamecocks beat Mississippi State on Sunday in Dallas to claim the program’s first national championship. The team arrived back home Monday afternoon.
