South Carolina Team Preview

The South Carolina Gamecocks come into this one looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses after a 64-63 loss to LSU in their last game. Meechie Johnson leads the Gamecocks in scoring with 13.8 PPG along with 4.1 RPG and 3 APG while B.J. Mack has 13.8 PPG with a team-high 5.1 RPG to lead the Gamecocks in rebounding and also to cap off the pair of double-digit scorers for South Carolina so far this season. Ta’Lon Cooper has 9.7 PPG with a team-high 4.2 APG to lead the Gamecocks in assists while also logging 4.2 RPG and Collin Murray-Boyles also has 9.7 PPG as well this season. As a team, South Carolina is averaging 71.8 PPG on 44% shooting from the field, 33.9% from three and 72.4% from the foul line this season.

Ole Miss Team Preview

The Ole Miss Rebels come into this game looking to rebound from an 83-71 loss at the hands of Mississippi State last time out. Matthew Murrell leads the Rebels in scoring with 17.3 PPG along with 3.9 RPG and 2.4 APG along with 1.8 SPG while Allen Flanigan has 15.4 PPG with a team-high 6.6 RPG to lead the Rebels on the glass. Jaylen Murray has 14 PPG with a team-high 4 APG to lead the way in assists while Jaemyn Bakefield has 11.8 PPG with 4.8 RPG to round out the scoring in double figures for Ole Miss so far this season. As a team, Ole Miss is averaging 75.8 PPG on 45.3% shooting from the field, 38.3% from three and 74.8% from the foul line this season. Ole Miss will take on Alabama after this one.

South Carolina vs. Ole Miss Prediction

I’m on Ole Miss here. I think this is a revenge spot for Ole Miss coming up after losing the first meeting against the Gamecocks and the Rebels have an edge in 3-point shooting which has been a weakness of South Carolina’s defense up to this point. I think being at home may be the difference in this one, so give me Ole Miss laying the bucket.
