If the Gamecocks can not beat Longwood then who can they beat?
The Longwood Lancers (3-12) will play the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina beginning at 7 p.m. tonight; it will be televised on Fox Sports South TV.
The Gamecocks are 8-5 and have lost three of their past four games. Carolina needs this game for mental reasons and team chemistry issues before SEC play begins against Auburn in less than a week. But USC can not look past Longwood as we saw what happens when the Carolina basketball team does that...see Wofford.
Longwood is lead by two good players -
1. #22 Dana Smith, who averages 15.9 pts, 6.9 rbs and 2.3 asst per game.
2. #04 Antwan Carter, who gets 14.7 pts, 7.1 rbs and leads the team in blocks with 8.
Carolina take note and play those two tight. On top of improved defense against Longwood let's see some blocking out on the boards and improved free throws. Want to see other guys step it up tonight and not the Devan Downey show...even though we here at LOHD love him. Devan spread the ball around and let some of the other guys try their hand at it tonight.
The gamecocks should be able to defend the home turf vs the Lancers tonight and I want to see a 15+ point win.
Longwood 'DYK' - Longwood University is considered to be the "Mother of Sororities," for having the distinction of having more national sororities founded there than any other school, 4. The following national sororities were founded at Longwood: Alpha Sigma Alpha, Sigma Sigma Sigma, Zeta Tau Alpha, and Kappa Delta.
