North Carolina Central: A Quick Recap

As expected, we pounded hapless and short-handed NCCU (they're now 0-12) by a score of 90-43 to move to 7-1. The Gamecocks forced a school record 31 turnovers and Devan Downey led us with 23 points on 8-11 shooting. Downey also logged seven steals as he continued his stellar, All-SEC level play.

There's not a whole lot to report on this game. NCCU is one of the country's worst teams according to the RPI, so the blowout victory means very little. Brandis Raley-Ross did return to play some minutes tonight, which is a good sign. Also of note is that NCCU coach Henry Dickerson, whose team has also played a few other upper-level teams like Wake Forest and Arkansas, said he thinks we're one of the best teams his Eagles have played.

Other than those two tidbits, though, this was another game against sub-par competition. We have two more games like this, against the Citadel and Presby, before we take on Clemson in a game that will go a long way towards indicating what this team is capable of this year.
