In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Virginia at South Carolina.
Virginia is the 5th ranked team in the country and they got off to a red-hot start, winning their first 9 games. The defense is capable of shutting down any opponent. Even though the offense isn’t very impressive, the defense carries them through the opponents. In their last game, the Cavaliers beat VCU 57-49, holding them to just 29.5% shooting. De’Andre Hunter is the leading scorer with 15.6 points per game and there is only one other player who is also averaging double digits in scoring.
South Carolina was on the road last time out and the Gamecocks lost by 9 points to the ranked Michigan team. They committed too many fouls and gave up 23 points from the free throw line. They shot well from the field but the free throws eventually cost them the game. They also have just two players scoring in double digits and AJ Lawson is the leader with 14.3 per game.
Virginia has a team that is not going to allow as much as Michigan and if the Cavaliers go to the free throw line at will, they will be in for an easy road game.
