This game should be competitive as you have to rivals that are playing at a pretty good level right now. The Tigers are flying high on their six-game win streak while the Gamecocks have just one loss and are in the top 25 rankings. For me, I like the depth Clemson has over the Gamecocks. Clemson is clearly led by Blossomgame, but the Tigers have more scoring options and better balance with the ball. In a close game, I like the teams with more options.
