The DePaul Blue Demons and South Carolina face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown at Gila River Arena. 

DePaul Has Not Been Impressive

DePaul comes into this game with a 2-2 record overall and they sure looked impressive in the last game against South Dakota. The defense gave up only 60 points and that led to the 12 point victory. Jeremiah Oden had a good game putting up 16 points, five rebounds, and three assists. DePaul on the season is averaging 73 points per game while their defense is giving up 73 points per game. The offense is ranked 227th while the defense is ranked 233rd in the league. Jeremiah Oden is averaging 14 points while shooting 41.4 percent from the field and 41.2 percent from behind the three point line. 

How Good is This South Carolina Team?

South Carolina comes into this game with a 3-0 record overall but the last two games they haven’t been exactly dominant. In the last game against VMI they should have had no issue winning the game, but they only secured the victory by ten points. BJ Mack was the top player putting up 17 points and 13 rebounds. South Carolina on the season is averaging 78.3 points while their defense is giving up 64.7 points per game. The offense is ranked 161st while the defense is ranked 99th. 

Shane’s Free Pick

South Carolina is going to have no issue in this game. DePaul is giving up 73 points per game and they are going to have some major issues slowing down South Carolina here. The Gamecocks are going to really try to make a statement and they are going to do that here with their offense. Back South Carolina against the spread.
