Default Points will be at a premium on Friday

Baylor ranks 21st in scoring defense, allowing 63.5 points per game. We come in at 32, allowing 65.2. We had an offensive renaissance against Marquette and Duke who rank 256th and 117th, respectively. But it is unlikely that we'll find points as easy to come by against Baylor, who can go toe-to-toe with us defensively. We've won our first two games largely on the weight of dynamic second halves in both games but will probably need to put it together and play a complete game from buzzer to buzzer in this one. This one looks to be an ugly, defensive contest.

Side note, Baylor's tournament contests have closely mirrored ours (winning 91-73 and 82-78 vs 93-73 and 88-81 for us.).

Looks like a good matchup and should be an entertaining game. Regardless of the slight edge Baylor appears to have, I'll take our guys' (and particularly Sin's) effort and tenacity in this kind of game any day. It'll probably be close, but I think we'll get it done.

Nor should they be at this point. One thing that will be an adjustment is the crowd. We really did have home court advantage in our first two games and the team undoubtedly fed of the energy of the crowd. It was downright electric in the 2nd half last night. I'm sure we'll travel well, but it still won't be anything close to what we experienced in Greenville.

Whatever we've done in the NIT or whatever has nothing to do with Baylor having as stout a defense as ours.

There is a pretty big population of Carolina Alums in NY, really in the whole NY, NJ, MA, PA area. Not to mention its a short flight and even within a days drive. I wouldn't be shocked to see large contingent of Gamecock fans there. Plus it's NY, easy to make a nice 3-day weekend out of the trip.

I'm seeing a 3.5 point spread and about a 40% chance for USC to win.

If I had time, I would love to go back and watch the Baylor/WVU games.

No doubt. I expect a strong showing, but it simply can't be as pro-Carolina as a game 90 miles away from campus.

Our games have mirrored Baylor's but not the competition. As a #3 seed, they got to play a #14 and an #11 seed. We played a #10 and a #2. Plus, in this era of fake news, they got to play a fake school - the fake USC.

Fake USC actually played them tough. They had already handled Providence in a play-in game and then took out #6 SMU, just seemed to run out of steam at the end. Baylor put in a back-up guard late that was raining shots and making steals - he had like 6 points in 11 seconds. But an ill-advised goaltend - on a shot that was not going in - was the difference.

We will need big contributions from the inside guys - no foul troubles for "Carlos" Silva, and we need a better game from Kotsar and Keita. I think we have an edge at Guard but they are strong in the paint.

Being the higher seed and underdog, I expect we'll get adopted by the neutral folks in the arena if it's close (which is should be).

Interestingly, I read an article yesterday that said we would not be able to hold Baylor under 80. It may be true, but i"m not sure what the rationale was. Our points allowed and their points scored are both well below 80.
