She and Valerie Nainima combined for 44 points and their contributions will be vital against the Bulldogs.

BOTTOM LINE

The No. 14 Bulldogs snapped a three-game losing streak with a victory against LSU on Thursday. USC has four wins in 32 games against Georgia and has lost nine in a row. It might be difficult for the Gamecocks to pull off the upset on the road - but don't be surprised if it happens in the rematch in Columbia later this month.
