What to Know

The George Washington Colonials' homestand continues as they prepare to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks at 9 p.m. ET Nov. 30 at Charles E. Smith Center. Both teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.

The Colonials took their game against the New Hamp. Wildcats this past Saturday by a conclusive 75-54 score. George Washington's guard Brendan Adams did his thing and had 25 points in addition to seven rebounds.

Meanwhile, USC strolled past the South Carolina Upstate Spartans with points to spare last week, taking the matchup 68-53. The Gamecocks' success was spearheaded by the efforts of forward Gregory Jackson, who had 22 points along with six boards, and forward Hayden Brown, who had 15 points along with nine boards.

Barring any buzzer beaters, George Washington is expected to win a tight contest Wednesday. They covered a 10.5-point spread this past Saturday, so bettors might be thinking that will translate to further success against a lower spread.

The wins brought George Washington up to 4-2 and USC to 3-3. Two stats to keep an eye on: The Colonials are stumbling into the game with the 352nd fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.2 on average. The Gamecocks have had an even harder time: they are 44th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 11.5 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
