Looking upon the schedule, the matchup that catches the eye the most is USC-Vanderbilt. The 10th-ranked Trojans will travel to Nashville for a Pac-12/SEC showdown. SC is 2-0 and is coming off a 75-65 win over North Dakota State last Monday. It’s been a few days since they’ve played, but their rust... probably won’t be a factor. Bennie Boatwright has been on a tear, scoring 28 in the aforementioned win over NDSU and 13 in the opener over Cal State Fullerton. Boatwright, Jordan McLaughlin and Chimezie Metu will be the ones to watch.
From there, it’s hard to find anything seriously eye-popping. The Auburn Tigers look to salvage their trip to Charleston, battling the Hofstra Pride. South Carolina, meanwhile, looks to end their trek to Myrtle Beach on a high note against the Western Michigan Broncos.
Apart from that though... well, Georgia should take care of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. And Florida should roll over UNH.
