Muschamp enjoying watching both basketball teams' success

South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp isn't sure where he'll watch the Gamecocks men's basketball team's Elite Eight matchup with Florida Sunday, but he'll definitely be watching.

"I want to congratulate Frank Martin and out men's basketball team," Muschamp said to lead off his post-scrimmage media gathering Saturday afternoon. "And Dawn (Staley) will get a 'W' today at 4:00, so I'm looking forward to watching that. I'm excited about watching TV tomorrow and watching our guys get a chance to go to the Final Four. It's really awesome to watch and the fan support."

Muschamp says he wasn't sure yet if he'll travel to watch the game live in Madison Square Garden or on TV in his Lake Murray home.

"We obviously knew we were practicing [football] today and we're playing [basketball] tomorrow," Muschamp said. "I haven't talked to Coach (Ray) Tanner, so I don't know. Whatever we do, I'd love to watch them live, but if I watch them on TV, I'll be alright."

South Carolina's women's basketball team takes on Quinnipiac today at 4 p.m. on ESPN with the winner advancing to the Elite Eight.

The Gamecocks men will take on Florida at 2:20 p.m. Sunday on CBS with the winner moving on to the Final Four.
