University of South Carolina Advances to the Final Four And Students Are Living Their Best Lives

By Melissa Cordell - Mar 26 2017

For a first in the school's history, the University of South Carolina men's basketball team has advanced to the Final Four, beating the University of Florida 77-70. 

This isn't the first surprise the college had during the NCAA tournament; it was also their first time in the Elite Eight. 

Students are celebrating in all ways, taking to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and even jumping into fountains. 

People flooded the campus and downtown areas, rushing after their victory.

Similar to UNC-Chapel Hill's tradition of jumping over fires, the Gamecocks jump over fountains.

Even the South Carolina avocados are celebrating. 

USC will play Gonzaga next Saturday.
