LSU women’s basketball to host ESPN’s College GameDay ahead of matchup vs. No. 1 South Carolina on Jan. 25

LSU’s women’s basketball team will be in the national spotlight for what should be a matchup between top-10 teams when it hosts No. 1 South Carolina at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center on Jan. 25.

ESPN’s College GameDay preview show will be in town with Elle Duncan, Carolyn Peck, Andraya Carter, Rebecca Lobo and Holly Rowe hosting. Lobo and Rowe will also be on the call for the game.

The show will start at 6 p.m. CT, an hour before the game, and it will lead into the tip-off of the game at 7. According to an LSU release, the PMAC plans to open its doors earlier than usual so fans can be seated by the start of the show.

The Gamecocks are undefeated on the year and received unanimous first-place votes in the latest AP Top 25. LSU, meanwhile, is coming off its second loss of the season on the road against Auburn, which snapped a 16-game winning streak.
