What to Know
The South Carolina Gamecocks have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the #11 Auburn Tigers and are hoping to record their first win since Jan. 22 of 2019. USC and Auburn will face off in an SEC battle at 6:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Colonial Life Arena. The Gamecocks are out to keep their seven-game home win streak alive.
The Army West Point Black Knights typically have all the answers at home, but last Wednesday USC proved too difficult a challenge. USC made easy work of Army and carried off a 105-75 victory. It should come as no surprise that the experts had more or less unanimously put their money on USC. They can attribute much of their success to guard Devin Carter, who had 22 points.
Meanwhile, Auburn wrapped up 2021 with a 70-55 victory over the LSU Tigers. Auburn’s forward Walker Kessler did his thing and almost dropped 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 wins brought USC up to 9-3 and Auburn to 12-1. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Gamecocks enter the game with 5.7 blocked shots per game on average, good for 17th 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.
