South Carolina women’s basketball lost to Texas A&M on Sunday, but the Gamecocks might not have to wait long to get a rematch with the Aggies.

The SEC women’s basketball tournament kicks off Wednesday in Greenville, with 13 teams set to play after Vanderbilt opted out of the season after playing eight games.

With A&M’s victory Sunday, it will take the No. 1 seed in the tourney. But for the eighth year in a row, USC will be in the top two checking in as the No. 2 seed.

South Carolina has won five SEC tournament titles in six years, the most successful stretch in conference history. The Gamecocks will open their title defense Friday, playing the winner of the No. 7 Alabama vs. No. 10 Missouri.

With the final games of the regular season finishing Sunday night and no games postponed by COVID-19 being rescheduled as of yet, here’s how the seeds and bracket shape up.
