WHAT TO WATCH FOR

Richmond's leading scorers are wings, but it also has a lot of talent in the post, where USC is short on depth. The Spiders' defensive strength is also the post, which should fit the Gamecocks' normal strategy of running and making 3s. But the Gamecocks have to avoid being dominated inside, as they were against Clemson.

BOTTOM LINE

Before the season, this one was a solid resume-builder for the Gamecocks. Thanks to injuries and Richmond's surge, it's now a toss-up.
