Virginia gets the attention for its defense, but Georgia Tech is top-10 nationally in field-goal defense (holding teams to 37.6 percent) and 3-point defense (26.9). Don’t look for Clemson to make many 3-pointers in this game, as the Tigers rank 316 of 351 Division I teams in 3-point accuracy (30.6 percent).
SOUTH CAROLINA (8-7, 3-0 SEC) at VANDERBILT (9-6, 0-3)

Vanderbilt avoids mistakes, as the Commodores are near the top of the SEC in fewest fouls and turnovers.
