How to watch South Carolina vs. Auburn basketball game

Who’s Playing

Auburn @ South Carolina

Current Records: Auburn 12-1; South Carolina 9-3

What to Know

The South Carolina Gamecocks haven’t won a game against the #9 Auburn Tigers since Jan. 22 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Tuesday. USC and Auburn will face off in an SEC battle at 6:30 p.m. ET at Colonial Life Arena. The Gamecocks are out to keep their seven-game home win streak alive.

USC made easy work of the Army West Point Black Knights two weeks ago and carried off a 105-75 win. Among those leading the charge for USC was guard Devin Carter, who had 22 points.

Meanwhile, Auburn wrapped up 2021 with a 70-55 victory over the LSU Tigers. It was another big night for Auburn’s forward Walker Kessler, who almost posted a triple-double on 16 points, 11 blocks, and nine boards. Kessler has also now had at least four blocks in his past four games.

The Gamecocks are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. There could be an interesting gambling play in this one, as they have done quite well against the spread at home this season while Auburn have struggled against the spread on the road.

USC is now 9-3 while Auburn sits at 12-1. Two numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: USC enters the matchup with 5.7 blocked shots per game on average, good for 14th best in college basketball. But Auburn is even better: they rank first in college basketball when it comes to blocked shots per game, with eight on average. Points in the paint might be hard to come by.
