Dawn Staley’s South Carolina basketball program is not only one of the top programs year in and year out in college basketball, but they are also always among the top schedulers every season. The Gamecocks routinely play out-of-conference games against big-name opponents in addition to their SEC slate and annual rivalry game against Clemson.

The 2023-2024 season is no different, and on Tuesday, the South Carolina basketball program released its entire out-of-conference slate for the upcoming season.

The Gamecocks will play much of their out-of-conference schedule away from home as they play neutral site games in Paris, France and Uncasville, Connecticut and back-to-back road contests in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and Durham North Carolina before trips to Bowling Green, Kentucky and Greenville, North Carolina late in December.

South Carolina basketball has taken on UConn, Maryland, and Stanford several times in the regular season in recent years, and two of the three return to the schedule in the 2023-2024 season. The Gamecocks will play Maryland in the early portion of the out-of-conference slate and UConn during the middle of SEC play. Both games will be at Colonial Life Arena.

The annual Clemson rivalry will be played before the football game once again.

The entire schedule is listed below:

November 6th: Notre Dame Fighting Irish (neutral site game in Paris, France; part of the Aflac Oui Play Event)
November 12th: Maryland Terrapins
November 16th: Clemson Tigers
November 20th: South Dakota State Jackrabbits
November 24th: Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils
November 30th: @ North Carolina Tar Heels (part of the first annual ACC-SEC Challenge)
December 3rd: @ Duke Blue Devils (part of the Jimmy V Classic)
December 6th: Morgan State Bears
December 10th: Utah Utes (neutral site game in Uncasville, CT; part of the Basketball Hall of Fame Women’s Basketball Showcase)
December 16th: Presbyterian Blue Hose
December 19th: @ Bowling Green Falcons
December 30th: @ East Carolina Pirates
February 11th: UConn Huskies
