Covers expert Steve Merril had this to say about South Carolina vs. Gonzaga:
“South Carolina is an excellent defensive team that allows just 64.9 points per game and 39.8% FG shooting (versus opponents that averaged 74.0 ppg and 44.3% this season). However, the key to this game will be the health of South Carolina's leading scorer, Sindarius Thornwell (21.6 ppg) who is dealing with an illness.”
