This SEC matchup features the South Carolina Gamecocks and the Vanderbilt Commodores. South Carolina is looking to remain undefeated in the SEC and Vanderbilt is looking for their first conference win.
South Carolina defeated Vanderbilt 71-60 in their last meeting.
South Carolina Gamecocks
The Gamecocks may only be 8-7 on the year, but since SEC play started they have been one of the best.
The offense for the Gamecocks has certainly picked up the pace since the start of the new year. They are overall averaging 75.5 points per game. However, in three SEC games they are averaging 81 points per game. If they continue to play at this level they will be a tough team to beat and should find themselves in the mix for a SEC regular season title.
One area of concern for the Gamecocks is they allow their opponents to shoot quite well from the three point line. They allow 37.5% from deep range, which could certainly be an issue at some point this season. If they let the Commodores get hot from deep range, they will be in danger of losing this game.
Vanderbilt may have a winning record, but they have lost three straight to start 2019. They are in trouble of falling into an even deeper hole if they cannot find a conference win soon.
The Commodores do not actually have that bad of an offense considering their recent struggles. Overall they are scoring 78.4 points per game. However, in the SEC they are scoring 60.3 points per game. Look for scoring leader, Simisola Shittu, to be the key for the Commodores in this game.
The Commodores defense has definitely lost their touch since conference play started. They allow about 70 points per game, but will need to shut down the Gamecocks leading scorer, Chris Silva. If Vanderbilt can do this, they will have a solid chance to pull out a win.
