The Gamecocks are coming off a ten point home loss against Vanderbilt on Saturday night. Horn was not pleased with the defensive effort in the game and pointed specifically to Sam Muldrow has a guy that needs to step up on that end of the floor. Muldrow only had two rebounds against the Commodores.
Devon Downey has been on fire for the Gamecocks. He scored 35 against Vandy and he’s averaged over 30 points per game in the Gamecocks three league contest. The problem is he also lead the team in rebounding against Vandy. If your 5-9 point guard is your leading rebounder you are in trouble.
Senior guard Brandis Raley-Ross understands the other guys on the team need to do more to help Downey. He is confident the rest of the team will be able to feed off of Downey and step up their respective games. It will take a complete team effort to knock off a very good Ole Miss team. Especially on the road in Oxford.
