It has taken a while to accomplish, but after sweeping Auburn at home last weekend, South Carolina finally has a postseason resume that narrowly edges out a fabulous Virginia club.
The Gamecocks have a fantastic resume. They have an RPI of 4 with an 11-4 mark vs. RPI Top 25, 13-5 vs. RPI Top 25 and 22-6 vs. RPI Top 100. It's also worth noting the Gamecocks are in a three-way tie with Florida and Vanderbilt for the SEC lead, and have the head-to-head advantage against both.
Other national seeds this week include (in order), Virginia, Vanderbilt, Florida, Texas, Oregon State, Arizona State and Georgia Tech. Other teams considered for national seeds include North Carolina, Florida State and to a lesser extent Texas A&M and Southern Mississippi.
