Let's not kid ourselves, people. The Hoop Dogs found a way to lose to the Palmetto State Poultry a couple of weeks ago, so there's no particular reason to suspect they won't find a way to lose to the Gamecocks this afternoon, too. Yeah, it's in Stegeman Coliseum, but an absolute inability to win on the road doth not a home court advantage make.
Are we in for what seems briefly to be a breakthrough win yet again, will we be treated to one more heartbreaking nailbiter, or is something novel in store? Feel free to join the conversation in the comments below.
