Following a 5:30 wake-up call, I headed out of the comfy confines of The Inn at USC, which is right on the campus of The University of South Carolina (Columbia,SC). In order to get a lay of the land, I got hustling on a four mile campus walk. The buildings and history at this great institution are steeped in tradition...and the school has been educating students there for over 200 years. It's worth a visit just to walk the campus area of class buildings and residence halls. It's really like a deep south botanical nature preserve.
However, that's not where Gamecocks Basketball Strength Coach Scott Greenawalt spends his time! He's over at The Colonial Life Arena...and that's where the basketball strength & conditioning program takes place. Towering mossy oak trees or palmetto plants are not the main attraction.... it's multi-purpose racks, barbells and specialized strength training equipment that takes precedence there. And, of course the home basketball court of the South Carolina Gamecocks.
