Atlanta is the center of the SEC basketball universe this week, and the Georgia Dome is set to host a second round tilt between the Arkansas Razorbacks and South Carolina Gamecocks on Thursday afternoon. The game is the second of the “early” session, and should be a nice showcase for both clubs.
South Carolina made it this far after an 18-point decimation of Auburn on Wednesday night. In fact, the Gamecocks played so well that their win got Auburn’s head coach fired (yikes), and USC has now won 3 of their last 4 games, including an upset over the highly talented Kentucky Wildcats.
On the Arkansas side, some believe that the Razorbacks have designs on the “bubble”, but they desperately need to make a run in the SEC Tournament to make that happen. Arkansas plays at an incredibly fast pace (5th in the country in adjusted tempo), and their best bet will be to simply run the Gamecocks off the floor.
