South Carolina State took on South Carolina in their season opener last Tuesday. The Bulldogs were within three points at the break but couldn’t take the game in an 80-77 defeat. Lesown Hallums was tops in scoring with 20 points for the Bulldogs. 

South Carolina State didn’t fare any better in their second game versus Tennessee on Saturday. The Bulldogs were outscored 45-26 in the second half during an 80-61 loss. Hallums again led the team with 14 points, three boards and one assist. 

Over on the Duquesne side, their first game against Montana wasn’t much of a challenge. The Dukes jumped out to a 45-19 lead by halftime and ended up with a 91-63 win. Dae Dae Grant led the way on 25 points in 21 minutes of work. 

Duquesne had a much tougher matchup in their second game versus Kentucky. The Dukes scored just 22 points in the first half, limping to a 77-52 loss. Jimmy Clark was the only team player in double-digits with 11 points and three boards. 

PICK: I’m likely going with Duquesne. The Dukes are coming off a sketchy performance, but considering it was against a great Kentucky team we can cut them some proverbial slack. Duquesne shot just 30.3 percent in that game but they did haul in a decent 35-rebound total. The Dukes should match up much better with South Carolina State. The Bulldogs had a pretty ugly second half in their last game versus Tennessee State. They should fare better here but I still like Duquesne on the cover.
