Men's pregame: Gamecocks vs. Paladins

WHEN: 7 p.m.

WHERE: Colonial Life Arena

TV: SportSouth.

RADIO: WNKT 107.5-FM

RECORDS: USC 7-3, Furman 5-4

COACHES: Darrin Horn (28-13 in two seasons at USC, 139-61 in seven seasons overall). Jeff Jackson (43-67 in four seasons at Furman, 54-127 in seven seasons overall.)

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

The Gamecocks have to come back mentally fewer than 48 hours after a loss at Wofford. Horn was upset with his players' effort in that game, so it will be interesting to see how much energy the injury-depleted team has tonight. Furman has played one other major-conference opponent, falling by 29 at Clemson.

BOTTOM LINE

This should be a bounce-back game for the Gamecocks. But given their injuries and the short turnaround, there is always a chance Furman could make this interesting.
