Carolina seeking its third true road win of the season ; 1 p.m. (ET) tip on SEC Network

­­­­COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina (14-3, 2-2 SEC) heads west for a Saturday matchup at Arkansas (10-7, 1-3 SEC) this weekend. Tip-off is set for 1 p.m. (ET) on SEC Network with Dave Neal (pxp) and Joe Kleine (analyst) on the call for the broadcast.

The Gamecocks will look to bounce back again on the road after a hard-fought, midweek battle against Georgia. The Razorbacks are fresh off a buzzer beater victory over Texas A&M on Tuesday at Bud Walton Arena, which is one of the best home court advantages in the country.
