The South Carolina Gamecocks and the Seton Hall Pirates will both be trying to pick up a win on Monday when they battle at Madison Square Garden.

ABOUT SOUTH CAROLINA (8-0): The Gamecocks are back in action for the first time since a 70-54 win over Florida International on Dec. 4 in which Duane Notice (11.5 points) made six 3-pointers and matched his career-high with 27 points. Notice is one of the players who will have to do more at the offensive end until Thornwell returns. Sophomore guard PJ Dozier (12.8 points, 4.5 rebounds) has turned it on of late, averaging 18.7 points over three games since being blanked against Michigan.

ABOUT SETON HALL (7-2): The Pirates are dangerous and versatile at the offense end with guard Khadeen Carrington (20 points) leading a trio of double-digit scorers. Forwards Angel Delgado (13.6 points, 10.9 rebounds) and Desi Rodriguez (14.6, 6.8) give Seton Hall a pair of scoring options in the frontcourt, and Delgado has posted three straight double-doubles. Freshman guard Myles Powell (12.6 points) has been inconsistent but can light it up from the outside.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Pirates listed as 2.5-point favorites versus the Gamecocks, while the game’s total is sitting at 145 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Seton Hall was a 60-57 winner in its last match on the road against Golden Bears. They covered the +1-point spread as underdogs.

South Carolina looks to continue its unbeaten start to the season, but the 18th-ranked Gamecocks will have to do so without their best player when they face Seton Hall on Monday in the Under Armour Reunion at Madison Square Garden in New York. The Gamecocks will be without leading scorer Sindarius Thornwell for a second straight game as the senior guard continues an indefinite suspension for violating and undisclosed athletics department policy.

The absence of Thornwell could be especially difficult against a Seton Hall team that has won three straight and boasts a number of offensive weapons. “Not one guy is going to step in and be Sindarius,” South Carolina coach Frank Martin told reporters. “There’s a reason he started and other guys backed him up. … They all collectively have to grab an extra rebound each, have to come up with an extra assist each, have to come up with a way for them all to score one more basket each than what they’ve been doing.” It’s the second trip to New York City this season for the Gamecocks, who beat then-No. 16 Syracuse 64-50 on Nov. 26 in the Brooklyn Hoops Holiday Invitational. The Pirates are no stranger to Madison Square Garden, where they won last season’s Big East Tournament title.
