What to Know

The South Carolina Gamecocks and the Mississippi State Bulldogs will face off in an SEC clash at 6:30 p.m. ET Tuesday at Colonial Life Arena. The contest is expected to be a close one, with the Gamecocks going off at just a 2-point favorite.

USC was close but no cigar this past Saturday as they fell 90-86 to the Alabama Crimson Tide. USC got a solid performance out of forward Keyshawn Bryant, who posted a double-double on 22 points and 13 rebounds; unfortunately, it just wasn’t enough for the win. Bryant has posted a double-double in each of his past three games. Bryant’s points were the most he has had all year.

Speaking of close games: MSU came out on top in a nail-biter against the Missouri Tigers this past Saturday, sneaking past 67-63. The top scorer for MSU was guard Tyson Carter (15 points).

USC is now 17-12 while MSU sits at 19-10. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: USC ranks 18th in college basketball when it comes to blocked shots per game, with 4.3 on average. But MSU is even better: they come into the game boasting the 10th most blocked shots per game in college basketball at 5.1. Points in the paint might be hard to come by.
