Tiny liberal-arts alcove Limestone College faces heavily-favored SEC standout South Carolina Wednesday afternoon from Colonial Life Arena.
Limestone is a member of the Conference Carolinas, a 12-team NCAA Division II collection, and enrolls a student body of just under 1,100. This season, the Saints have struggled against lower-tier competition, having lost three straight, most recently vs. Carson-Newman.
Meanwhile, South Carolina looks to end its twelve-game non-conference schedule with nine wins while rebounding from a lopsided Dec. 16 setback vs. ACC-rival Clemson.
Limestone’s big-game cameo this season comes against the midling division I Gamecocks. Though, defeating South Carolina, especially as a visitor, would be the Saints’ version of cutting down the nets after March Madness.
For Limestone’s long-shot bid to work, several factors must swing in the Saints’ favor: The high-scoring duo of Kenny Hairston and T.J. Sheppard will need career-defining performances, as will several members of the struggling Division II school’s supporting cast.
Hairston and Sheppard added 51 points in a losing 82-74 effort vs. Carson-Newman, as no other Saints teammate scored more than five points.
South Carolina Gamecocks
South Carolina resides alongside numerous SEC teams which sport impressive non-conference records. And while a recent 64-48 loss vs. Clemson may be telling for the Gamecocks’ conference future, it is far from an omen vs. Limestone.
Look for South Carolina’s bench to empty fast in what, on paper, is the team’s easiest contest of the year.
Also expect a strong start for the Gamecock’s balanced starting five of Hassani Gravett, Frank Booker, Justin Minaya, Maik Kostar, and leading-scorer Chris Silva.
CBB Betting Trends:
- South Carolina is 6-5 ATS this season
- South Carolina is 6-2 at home this season
- Limestone is 6-7 SU overall this season
Free Limestone vs. South Carolina Gamecocks NCAAB Prediction:
In professional sporting parlance, ‘trap game’ is often used as a cautionary descriptor when one team holds an overwhelming competitive advantage over an opponent. And this contest certainly classifies as trap game territory for South Carolina.
As such, Limestone will play as most no-hope underdogs do, with a freedom which may create tense early moments. However, South Carolina’s stock is too much for even the most pollyannish of bettors to throw money on Limestone’s hail mary odds.
