We have an SEC showdown in Columbia, SC, this afternoon as the No. 22 Tennessee Volunteers hit the road to meet the South Carolina Gamecocks.
Tennessee (15-6, 6-3 SEC) has won four straight in conference play and its latest one came on Tuesday when it downed Texas A&M in a 90-80 shootout. Despite it being close at certain junctures, the Vols never trailed in the contest and kept the Aggies at enough of an arm’s length to hold on. Josiah-Jordan James led with 14 points, eight rebounds, and five steals.
South Carolina (13-8, 4-5 SEC) had its three-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday when it was blown out by Mississippi State 78-64. The Gamecocks didn’t lead for a single second in this one and could only muster 24 rebounds total for the entire game. James Reese V led with 15 points in the loss.
