Gamecocks vs Bears

When: Noon

Where: Colonial Life Arena

TV: Fox Sports (TWC 31/DTV 646/DISH 420)

RADIO: WNKT-FM 107.5

RECORDS: USC 8-4, Baylor 10-1

COACHES: Darrin Horn (29-14 in second season at USC, 140-62 in seventh season overall). Scott Drew (91-96 in eighth season at Baylor, 111-107 in ninth season overall.)

WHAT TO WATCH FOR

Horn said Baylor is "by far the most talented team we've played," and perhaps one of the best in the country. The Bears have a huge front line - three starters are 6-foot-10 or taller - a sharpshooter in LaceDarius Dunn and a speedy scoring guard in Tweety Carter. To have a chance, South Carolina will have to make it a full-court game, with Devan Downey receiving help in the scoring column.
