TV: FoxSportSouth

RADIO: WISW, 1320AM

RECORDS: USC 5-3, Wake Forest 7-2

TICKETS: (803) 777-4274

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:

The Gamecocks tried a new starting lineup in Sunday's victory against N.C. State, but expect tonight's to resemble the one from earlier in the year. The Demon Deacons have a bona fide star in Brittany Waters, who averages nearly 20 points per game. Expect USC to play more zone to neutralize her driving ability. Charnee Stephens will miss her third consecutive game with a left knee sprain.

BOTTOM LINE:

This closes out the longest homestand of the year for USC, and it could be the toughest home contest yet. Wake Forest plays tenacious defense and rebounds well. It could take the Gamecocks' best effort to pull out a victory.
