The Gamecocks are seeking just the second all-time win for the program in what will be the team’s ninth trip all-time to Mizzou Arena. Carolina’s lone victory on the road in the series came on Jan. 28, 2017. The then No. 23/24 Gamecocks were victorious 63-53 thanks to a double-double from All-American Sindarius Thornwell, who finished the game with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

Missouri has won three of the last four matchups and the Tigers have won three-straight over Carolina on their home floor dating back to 2019.

The winner in the last eight matchups between the two schools has scored at least 70 points.

Missouri, who is led by another second year head coach in Dennis Gates, is aggressive on the defensive end of the floor ranking No. 58 nationally (second in SEC) in steals per game (8.5) and No. 8 (second in SEC) in blocks per game (6.1). The Tigers are also top-60 nationally in 3-point field goals per game (8.8, 59th), 3-point attempts per game (43rd, 26.1) and free throw percentage (76.9%, 23rd).
