The South Carolina State Bulldogs have shown little to nothing on both sides of the floor and it's hard to get behind them in their current form. However, the Furman Paladins aren't exactly world beaters with losses in three of their last four games and allowing 170 points in their last two games. This is a lot of points to pass up. It's the South Carolina State Bulldogs and the free buckets or pass for me.
