Projected seed: 5

Looking at South Carolina's season, their projection is rooted in a solid record with a few notable scalps and an appreciable performance in a tough conference. The wins against Virginia Tech and Kentucky stand out as quality victories, while topping a ranked Tennessee team on the road cements their capacity to pull off significant upsets. However, losses to teams like Georgia and LSU raise questions about consistency. The thumping by Auburn away from home also puts a dent in their resume, muddying the waters when assessing their ability to compete with the top tier in crunch time. The Gamecocks' ability to snag a few more marquee wins, especially in a conference as competitive as the Southeastern, would go a long way in solidifying their standing come Selection Sunday. Their strong defense has been a cornerstone of their success, and if that holds, it could prove to be a pivotal factor in a tournament setting where games often hinge on crucial stops.
