WHAT TO WATCH FOR: USC will attempt to snap a three-game conference home losing streak. The Gamecocks last SEC win at home was against Georgia (57-56) on Feb. 15, 2012. In their only meeting last season, the Gamecocks lost at Auburn, 63-52. Auburn forward Allen Payne has had the hot hand of late, averaging 14.0 points over his previous three games, giving the Tigers a bona fide second threat alongside Frankie Sullivan. USC has its own hot hand. Brian Richardson leads the team with better than 13 points per game over the past six contests, including 20 against Mississippi State.
