Gamecocks In Brooklyn A behind the scenes look at south carolina's trip to new york city

Take an inside look at South Carolina's trip to New York City for the Brooklyn Hoops Holiday Invitational at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

After a thrilling upset over No. 25/24 Michigan on Wednesday, Nov. 23, in Columbia, the Gamecocks took a late evening flight to New York City. Carolina prepared to face No. 18/16 Syracuse at the Barclays Center on Nov. 26.

Carolina has played at the Barclays Center three times during head coach Frank Martin's five seasons in Columbia. On each trip, the Gamecocks stay in the heart of Brooklyn and walk to Saint Francis College, just blocks way from the hotel, for practice.
