South Carolina managed to win just one of their first eight games, but they’ve only lost consecutive outings once since then. The Bulldogs are 2-2 in their last four with wins over MD Eastern Shore and Delaware State between losses to Morgan State and Norfolk State. 

Matched up against Norfolk State on Saturday, the Bulldogs were drilled 18-34 in the first half. SC State fought back on a 41-29 second-half run but still lost 63-59. TJ Madlock was tops on 17 points with seven rebounds in the defeat. 

Over on the Howard side, they were sitting at 8-10 as January came to a close but they’ve been much better this month. The Bison are on a 7-1 run over their last eight games; the last two have been a loss to Coppin State and a win over NC Central. 

In the NC Central game, the Bison were up by 16 points at halftime. Howard was outscored 33-39 from there but hung on for the 77-67 victory. Elijah Hawkins was the top team scorer on 17 points with three assists. 

The Bison are 1-4 ATS in the last five Monday games and 2-7-1 ATS in the last 10 overall. Howard is 1-3-1 ATS in their last five at home. 

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs are 12-4-1 ATS in the last 17 road games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Monday games. SC State is 5-2 ATS in their last seven overall. 

PICK: I’m probably going to stay with Howard here. The Bison posted an 86-82 loss to Coppin State last Monday but otherwise they’ve been great in February. Howard has hit 68 or more points in every game this month and they’ve been able to get back on the right side of .500 for the year. 

The last time these teams met up was a 58-55 SC State home victory back on January 31. This rematch should be a pretty intense matchup, and I like Howard to emerge with the revenge cover.
