Although this game technically counts as the NCAA Tournament, everyone knows that the real action starts tomorrow. With that said, I will settle for this game tonight, and even though it’s a play in game, it’s quite the matchup between two #11 seeds as USC takes on Providence in a rematch of their first round matchup in last year’s tournament where Providence came away with a one point victory by the score of 70-69.
Things have been pretty good at USC this year. Their football team won the Rose Bowl in a thrilling game, and their basketball team is back in the tournament for a second straight year. The Trojans finished the year with a 24-9 record, and even managed to beat their bitter rival then #8 UCLA during the season too. While USC may not have any NBA prospects on their current team, if they play extremely well tonight, they very well could get revenge on Providence this year, and advance to the games on Friday.
Providence has actually had a pretty tough schedule this year, and have had to face nine ranked teams during the season, winning three of those games. They finished third in the surprisingly tough Big East this year, and did so playing stifling defense that only allowed 66 points a game. Lead by leading scorers Rodney Bullock and Emmitt Holt, the Friars are looking to take down USC for a second straight season, even though they’re going into this game as the underdogs. It should be a great game, and if you want to watch the game via live stream, take a look at the info below to see where you can do so.
