Key Stats

South Carolina Gamecocks

South Carolina Gamecocks

The South Carolina Gamecocks are a juggernaut. They are elite across the board, ranking top four in the nation in points per game, field goal percentage, three-point percentage, rebounds, and blocks. They are anchored by superstar center Kamilla Cardoso. The 6-7 center, who has already declared for the WNBA Draft, leads the team with 14.1 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks per game.

NC State Wolfpack

The NC State Wolfpack has had a magical run so far and knocked off two-seed Stanford and one-seed Texas. They have a star of their own in junior guard Aziaha James. She is averaging 24.2 points per game on 51.3% shooting and 53.2% from three in the tournament. She is perhaps the main reason NC State is in the Final Four and will be the key to the Wolfpack having a chance in the game.

Game Prediction

After 36 straight wins, it’s almost impossible to bet against the undefeated South Carolina Gamecocks. The question comes down to how close you think the NC State Wolfpack can keep the score. South Carolina has won their four tournament games by an unthinkable average of 28.7 points. With that level of two-way dominance and the star power of potential top-five pick Kamilla Cardoso, I’m sticking with the Gamecocks to cover.

Final Pick

South Carolina Gamecocks -11.5 (-112) and Over 139.5 (-110)
