USC’s slim hopes of making the NCAA Tournament would get a boost with a win over Mississippi State Tuesday night at the CLA. The Gamecocks have lost three of their last four and are 17-12 overall, 9-7 in the SEC. They dropped a three point decision in Starkville last month. The game will mark the final regular season home game for senior forward Maik Kotsar who will be making his 120th career start.
