One of the last games to tip of in the round of 64 takes place in Greenville South Carolina. It’s a 7/10 match up between South Carolina and Marquette.
This is the first meeting between the two teams since 2005. These two teams are almost exact opposite on the court, so it will be interesting to see how this game works itself out.
Marquette Golden Eagles
The Marquette Golden Eagles have been one of the biggest surprises this year. No one really had any expectations for the Eagles this year so they have blown by those.
They beat a lot of good teams this year on the way to the NCAA Tournament.
The strength for the Eagles is on the offensive side of the ball.
They average 82.5 points per game well shooting 48.7 percent from the field. They also shoot 43 percent from the field.
The Gamecocks are good on the defensive end of the ball so they need to be really good on that side of the ball.
South Carolina Gamecocks
The South Carolina Gamecocks have had a great season this year and have made the dance for the first time since 2004. If they were to win this game it would be their first NCAA tournament win since 1973.
They come into this game having struggled as of late having only won two of their last seven games.
The Gamecocks strength is on the defensive side of the ball.
Opponents only average 64.5 points per game well shooting 40 percent from the field. To win this game they need to play lock down defense.
The Eagles can put up a lot of points in a hurry and they need to try and slow that down.

Free Marquette Golden Eagles vs. South Carolina Gamecocks NCAAB Prediction:
This game is going to come down to if the Gameocks defense can slow down the Golden Eagles on the offensive side of the floor.
I don’t think they will be able to. I think Marquette has too many weapons on the offensive side of the ball and that will be the difference.
