The 2nd round of the NIT is set as the matchup heads to South Carolina as the Gamecocks and Yellow Jackets get set for battle.
South Carolina used a giant 2nd half to get past High Point while the Yellow Jackets had very little issue knocking off 5th seeded Houston.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
The Yellow Jackets defensive efforts against the Cougars was the main reasoning for them having no problem.
Georgia Tech continued to make life difficult for the outside shooters and because of that they held a 2nd half lead that sat in double digits throughout.
The Cougars went just 2 of 13 from 3 point range, while the Yellow Jackets finished 8 for 16 from behind the arc.
Marcus Georges-Hunt has been the go to guy this year averaging 16.7 points per game to go along with 3.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. He was the leader in the first round win as he finished with 19 points, 4 rebounds, and 5 assists.
South Carolina Gamecocks
The Gamecocks trailed for some of first half against High Point and it looked as if the 8 seed was going to knock out the 1 seed. However, South Carolina used a giant 2nd half to sneak by High Point en route to an 88-86 victory.
The 2nd half was all defense for South Carolina as they held High Point to just 23 points.
The three point game, like the Yellow Jackets, was a key to victory too. South Carolina hit 7 threes en route to the win. That will likely be a very giant key in this match up as both teams aren’t shy with hoisting.
Look for the Gamecocks to use Michael Carrera here, as he leads the team with 14.4 points per game.

Free Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. South Carolina Gamecocks CBB Prediction:
The Yellow Jackets and Gamecocks will look to the 3 point shooting here.
Whichever team can get hot early, will certainly have the advantage. On the defensive side of it, closing out on shooters is a must, which both teams did in the first round matchup against their opponents.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Gamecocks
Advantage to the home team here. They have a much more physical presence in the paint, that will really cause havoc for Georgia Tech.
