The South Carolina Gamecocks and the FIU Panthers face off in a non-conference college basketball tilt on Monday night.

The South Carolina Gamecocks come into this one looking to build on back-to-back wins that have the Gamecocks sitting at 4-1 this season following a 79-66 win over Western Michigan in their last outing. Chris Silva and Wesley Myers tied for the team lead with 14 points and 5 reboudns apiece, while Frank Booker added 11 points on 4 of 10 shooting with 3 triples. Felipe Haase added 10 points on 3 of 5 shooting with a pair of threes and 5 boards of his own to round out the scoring in double figures for South Carolina in the win. Justin Minaya added 9 points and a pair of blocks, while Hassani Gravett also chipped in 9 points with a team-high 6 assists. Silva leads the team with an average of 11.6 points and 7.6 rebounds per game while Gravett is the team’s top assist man, dishing out 5 dimes per game this season. As a team, South Carolina is scoring 75 points per game on 42.5% shooting from the field, 35.7% from behind the arc and 67.7% from the foul line this season.

The FIU Golden Panthers will try to climb back to .500 overall this season after improving to 2-3 on the year with a 77-67 win over Concordia St. Paul in their last outing. Trejon Jacob led the team with 23 points on 6 of 13 shooting with 4 threes and a 7 for 8 mark from the foul line, while Michael Douglas added 16 points and 3 steals as the only pair of Golden Panthers to finish in double digits scoring in the win. Eric Lockett scored 9 points, while also dishing out a team-high 7 assists and leading the way in rebounding with 7 boards in the win. Lockett is the team’s leader in scoring, rebounding and assists with 16 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game this season. As a team, FIU is scoring 69.8 points per game on 40.7% shooting from the field, 32.3% from behind the arc and 57.5% from the foul line this season.

South Carolina is 7-0 ATS in their last 7 road games and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 non-conference games. FIU is 3-10 ATS in their last 13 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a win while the over is 11-3 in their last 14 games overall.

South Carolina looked solid in their last two games of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, while FIU are coming off some not so great losses against Elon, and Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I think the Gamecocks have too much size and power for FIU here, on top of the fact that South Carolina has been a covering machine on the road and overall dating back to last season, so even on the road, I’ll lay the points with the Gamecocks here.
