Gamecock Radio's Andy Demetra goes "Inside the Chart" with some pre-tip notes for tonight's game against Furman in Greenville. Read the full post here.
"Player to Stop: Furman senior forward Amu Saaka. Saaka initially pledged to Furman out of Decatur, Ga., but a terrific senior season sent his stock skyrocketing -- and his college plans changing. Saaka reneged on his Furman commitment, signing instead with USF in the Big East Conference. After head coach Ray McCallum was replaced by Stan Heath, Saaka was granted his release from USF, and welcomed back by Furman (good thing their staff let bygones be bygones). Now in his senior season, Saaka has delivered on his prep promise, averaging a team-high 15 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. I asked Chuck Hussion, the "Voice of the Paladins," to give me a primer on Saaka's talents."
