COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

No. 4 South Carolina will host the first of its final two home SEC games of the season on Sunday at 1 p.m. when Florida visits Colonial Life Arena.

The Gamecocks are recognizing the many women in the community who have battled or are battling breast cancer as well as celebrating National Girls and Women in Sports Day with various women's teams and local organizations setting up booths on the concourse with information and giveaways to promote healthy choices and healthy living.

The Gamecocks moved into the Associated Press top five last week for the first time since Jan. 10, 1982. This week's No. 4 ranking matches the one on that date.

South Carolina's highest ever rank in the AP Poll was No. 2, which it held for three weeks in December 1981.

Doors will open at 11:30 a.m. and everyone is encouraged to wear pink.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $4 for youth (17 and under).
