South Carolina Gamecocks: USC men’s tennis team in crash
The South Carolina men’s tennis team was involved in an accident Monday, the school said.
A university spokesperson confirmed to The State that the team was involved in a car accident while traveling to Raleigh, North Carolina in a van for a scheduled game with NC State which was scheduled for Tuesday.
South Carolina canceled the game at NC State “out of an abundance of caution and for the well-being of our student-athletes,” the school said in a statement. Information on a possible makeup date was not immediately available.
Details of the accident – including the time, location or any other information related to what happened – were not immediately available. The school spokesperson told The State the team was on its way back to Columbia on Monday night.
USC upset No. 10 Kentucky and No. 2 Stanford last week at the ITA Division I Men’s National Team Indoor Championship in Seattle.
South Carolina (11-2) is set to open Southeastern Conference competition Friday in Florida. It is unclear whether USC will play this game or not.
