South Carolina Women’s Basketball: #5 Gamecocks host Georgia

Carolina look to remain unbeaten at CLA.

NCAA Womens Basketball: South Carolina at Ohio State Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

The South Carolina Gamecocks host the Georgia Bulldogs tonight as they try to improve to 4-0 in SEC play. The Bulldogs enter the contest at 10-6 and 2-1 in SEC play. They pulled out a 70-68 win over Vanderbilt last weekend.

Game Start: 7:00 p.m.

Watch: SEC Network

Stream: WatchESPN

Radio: 1320 AM/107.5 the Game in Columbia.

Three Point Preview:

  1. The Gamecocks are likely to be without A’ja Wilson tonight as she recovers from an ankle injury suffered in the win over Florida. With Wilson out, Kaela Davis and Allisha Gray will look to continue what they did against Florida. Gray tied her season-high with 18 against the Gators while Davis scored 10 against the Gators. Davis has managed to hit double figures three games in a row with 16 against Alabama and 21 against Auburn.
  2. Alaina Coates will have to carry the load down low for the Gamecocks in Wilson’s absence. Coates racked up another double-double against Florida last time out after a tough game at Auburn. Mikiah Herbert Harrigan will likely see a boost in playing time with Wilson’s injury. She scored seven points in 16 minutes against Florida.
  3. Georgia enters the contest off back-to-back wins in SEC play. In their nail-biting win over Vandy, Shanea Armbrister scored a season-high 18 points off of the bench. Armbrister gave the Lady Bulldogs a big boost while the teams leading scorer, Caliya Robinson (15.5 ppg), struggled with 10 points. Pachis Roberts (12.9 ppg) and Mackenzie Engram (11.6 ppg) are the only other Bulldogs averaging double figures. They’ll try to buck the trend as the Lady Bulldogs are 1-3 on the road this season as they average only 48 points in those four games.
