The USC basketball team will face 2nd ranked Ohio State Saturday afternoon in Columbia. The Gamecocks are 4-5 this season, but they have won each of their past two games. The Buckeyes are 9-1, they lost at 13th ranked Kansas a week ago. That loss came with star forward Jared Sullinger sitting out with a back injury.
Sullinger was back on the court Wednesday for OSU’s home win over USC Upstate. He’s averaging 18 points and 10 rebounds per game this season. It’s no seceret that the key for the Gamecocks Saturday is finding a way to slow him down.
Sullinger dropped 30 points on the Gamecocks in the Buckeyes 79-57 win in Columbus last year.
Saturday’s game tips off at noon at Colonial Life Arena.
