What to Know
After a three-game homestand, the South Carolina State Bulldogs will be on the road. They will take on the South Florida Bulls at 7 p.m. ET Friday at Yuengling Center. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'
South Carolina State received a tough blow on Sunday as they fell 91-79 to the The Citadel Bulldogs.
Meanwhile, the game between South Florida and the Boston College Eagles on Monday was not particularly close, with the Bulls falling 64-49.
South Carolina State is the clear underdog, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. Those burned by picking them against the spread on Sunday might want to keep in mind that the squad has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
South Carolina State is now 1-7 while South Florida sits at 3-3. A pair of offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: South Carolina State has only been able to knock down 37.40% percent of their shots, which is the second lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. The Bulls have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 357th worst in college basketball in points per game, with only 55.2 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
