South Carolina Repeats as NCAA Baseball Champs with Record-Setting Run
Not even the Gators could take a bite out of the Gamecocks’ unprecedented run.
The University of South Carolina baseball team reeled off a record-setting 16th straight NCAA tournament victory and an all-time best 11th consecutive College World Series win to capture its second straight national title after completing a two-game sweep of Florida Tuesday night in the CWS finals.
With the 5-2 win, South Carolina (55-14) became just the sixth school to ever win back-to-back college baseball titles and the first to do so since Oregon State repeated in 2007.
The Gamecocks, who entered the tournament ranked fourth in the country, are the first team to go 10-0 in an NCAA tournament.
