The Charleston Southern Buccaneers and Florida Gators meet Friday in college basketball action at the Exactech Arena.

The Charleston Southern Buccaneers look for another victory after beating up on Columbia International in their season opener. The Charleston Southern Buccaneers are averaging 100 points on 46.2 percent shooting and allowing 68 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Travis McConico is averaging 17 points and four assists while Duncan LeXander is averaging 17 points and eight rebounds.

The Charleston Southern Buccaneers are shooting 38.1 percent from beyond the arc and 52.6 percent from the free throw line. The Charleston Southern Buccaneers are allowing 26.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40 rebounds per game. The Charleston Southern Buccaneers have won four of their last six road games.

The Florida Gators need a bounce back victory after getting rocked by Florida State in their opener. The Florida Gators are averaging 60 points on 37 percent shooting and allowing 81 points on 47.9 percent shooting. Deaundrae Ballard is averaging 13 points while Andrew Nembhard is averaging 12 points and four assists. Jalen Hudson is the third double-digit scorer and Keith Stone is grabbing eight rebounds. The Florida Gators are shooting 25 percent from beyond the arc and 66.7 percent from the free throw line. The Florida Gators are allowing 47.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30 rebounds per game. The Florida Gators have won four of their last six home games.

The Buccaneers are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Gators are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games and 1-4-2 ATS in their last 7 Friday games. The under is 10-4 in Gators last 14 overall and the under is 8-3 in Buccaneers last 11 road games.

After how the Florida Gators played in their opener, I'm not laying this much chalk with them against anybody. The Gators have some showing and proving for me to get back on this team. Give me the points with the Bucs.

Pick:
Charleston Southern Buccaneers +21.5
