South Carolina has been one of the best team’s in the nation, as the Gamecocks have started the season 8-0 with two wins over ranked opponents. However, South Carolina will be without star Sindarious Thornwell when they take on Seton Hall Monday, as coach Frank Martin has suspended the Gamecocks’ leader in scoring, rebounding and assists indefinitely.

- The total has gone UNDER in 15 of Seton Hall’s last 21 games as favorite.
- Seton Hall is 13-5 SU in their last 18 games against teams with winning records.
- The total has gone UNDER in 20 of South Carolina’s last 25 games as underdog.
With Thornwell sitting this one out, that leaves the guard duo of PJ Dozier and Duane Notice as the only South Carolina players suiting up to average double-digits points. Though offense may be an issue, the Gamecocks’ third-ranked defense shouldn’t face a lot of problems against a Seton Hall team averaging just 78.3 ppg.
The Pirates enter Monday as winners of their past three, all of which came on the back of a defense that has held their opponents to 61.7 ppg. Forward Angel Delgado has come up big during the winning streak, as the 6’10” junior has averaged 17 points and 12.3 rebounds while shooting 69.8 percent from the floor in the past three.
