The South Carolina Gamecocks and the George Washington Colonials meet in college basketball action from the Charles E. Smith Center on Wednesday night.

The South Carolina Gamecocks will look to build on their 68-53 win over South Carolina Upstate last time out. Gregory Jackson II leads South Carolina in scoring and rebounding with 17.2 PPG and 7.7 RPG while Chico Carter Jr. has 13.8 PPG with 2.2 APG and Hayden Brown has 10.8 PPG with 5.8 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for South Carolina up to this point in the season. Benjamin Bosmans Verdonk also has a team-high 2.2 APG to lead the Gamecocks in assists this year. As a team, South Carolina is averaging 63.5 PPG on 39.9% shooting from the field, 32.3% from three and 63.5% from the foul line this season.

The George Washington Colonials will look to build on their 75-64 win over New Hampshire last time out. James Bishop leads the Colonials in scoring and assists with 21.3 PPG and 5 APG while Brendan Adams has 17.7 PPG with 5.7 RPG and 2.8 APG this season. Maximus Edwards has 10.5 PPG with 5.7 RPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for George Washington so far this season while Ricky Lindo Jr. has 8.5 PPG and a team-high 8.7 RPG to lead the Colonials on the glass this season. As a team, George Washington is averaging 77.3 PPG on 49.8% shooting from the field, 33.8% from three and 74.2% from the foul line up to this point in the season.

South Carolina is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600 while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 road games. George Washington is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games following a win.

I get the reasoning for backing either side in this game, but I’m leaning towards GW here. I think there’s a reason the Gamecocks are underdogs in this game, and this year’s South Carolina team is just not a team I’m overly high on. I think there’s a strong possibility that South Carolina could be in the basement of the SEC this season. George Washington’s got a veteran laden group with tons of talent and I think they get the job done here. Give me the Colonials laying the points.
