WHAT TO WATCH FOR

The Gamecocks will round out the year with two games against in-state opponents before embarking on SEC play. First up is a visit from Presbyterian, a team that plays solid defense but struggles offensively. The Blue Hose only scored 27 points in a 47-point loss to N.C. State two games ago. USC has won four of its past five games and plays much better offensively at home. The Gamecocks are averaging 22 more points at home than on the road. They are coming off a 13-point victory over Butler a week ago. Ieasia Walker led the way with 17 points. Guard Marah Strickland has come off the bench to reach double figures in the past three games and is second on the team at 10.8 points a game.
