South Carolina becomes 10th school in history to send both men's, women's teams to Final Four

In a twist of fate that only March Madness could deliver, both South Carolina men's and women's basketball teams are headed to the NCAA Final Four.

South Carolina became the 10th college in NCAA history to send both its basketball programs to the Final Four. The accomplishment has been achieved a total of 13 times, with both UCONN teams making the Final Four on three separate occasions. The Huskies are the only team to ever win both the men's and women's national championship in the same season, making history in 2014.
