South Carolina (13-13, 6-8) Notes
-Two and a half weeks ago in Athens, South Carolina held to Georgia its lowest point total of the season as the Gamecocks earned their first road win (52-42) over a top-15 team in seven years on Super Bowl Sunday.
-Valerie Nainima closed the first half with a jumper that put the Gamecocks up 30-18. That 18-point total was the Lady Bulldogs' fewest through the first 20 minutes this season.
-Kelsey Bone's eight double-doubles are the most by a Gamecock freshman since Sheila Foster posted 13 in 1978-79.
-South Carolina has two wins over nationally-ranked teams for the first time since the 2002-03 season, during which the Gamecocks were also ranked for most of the season. South Carolina was 4-7 against ranked teams that season.
GEORGIA (20-7, 7-7) Notes
-The Lady Bulldogs enter this evening's matchup sporting a 28-5 advantage in their all-time series with the Gamecocks, including a 12-2 mark in contests contested in Columbia.
-UGA's 76-47 Valentine's Day victory over Alabama secured their 25th 20-win campaign during Andy Landers' 31-season tenure at UGA.
-Georgia has ranked among national leaders in scoring defense and field goal percentage defense for the entire season, checking in at No.12 and No. 6, respectively, in the latest listings.
-Georgia is in a three-way tie for fourth in the league standings. Mathematically, the Lady Bulldogs could still finish anywhere from 2nd to 10th.
-The Lady Bulldogs are 19-1 when holding their opposition to 60 or fewer points, losing only to South Carolina.
