Official statement from Dan Gavitt on report South Carolina men’s basketball team was invited to the NCAA tournament

The following is a statement from NCAA vice president of men's basketball championships Dan Gavitt, regarding a report that the University of South Carolina men’s basketball team was invited to the NCAA tournament:

"Unfortunately, during the selection show a junior men's basketball staff member mistakenly sent a text to a member of the University of South Carolina athletics department staff via an app we used for the first time during the 2016 tournament. The text was supposed to go to all teams, congratulating them for making the tournament. Regrettably, a text meant for another institution went to South Carolina instead.

"While the Gamecocks were given serious consideration, at no time during the selection process was South Carolina voted in to the field. Ultimately, they were one of the last four teams left out of the tournament. I take full responsibility for this clerical error and apologize to Coach Martin, his staff and team, and the entire University of South Carolina community."
