South Carolina released its women’s basketball schedule on Tuesday and the Gamecocks stand to face another couple of early-season hurdles.

The Gamecocks will resume their series with North Carolina at Myrtle Beach after taking a one-year hiatus last year, and also face a stretch of four road games in five as they try to build on two straight 25-win seasons and NCAA tournament appearances. USC will take a trip to California among the stretch of road games, playing San Diego State and Southern Cal, and also play a game at Charlotte, as it did to open the 2009 season.

The Gamecocks open the season at home against Charleston Southern on Nov. 8 and host Louisiana Tech two days later, in the back end of a two-game series. The Gamecocks beat the Lady Techsters 82-58 on the road last year. USC will finish the non-conference season with three straight home games before traveling to Arkansas on Jan. 2 for the start of SEC play.
