Aiken, SC---They are the favorites to win the Peach Belt conference and a favorite to contend for a national crown and the pieces are now in place for USC Aiken to do it all. This evening, a little different challenge.
The Pacers are heading to Littlejohn Coliseum to take on Clemson. A great opportunity for the Pacers, win or lose to see just how far they've come in the early going. Don't be surprised if this game is close. With pretty much the entire roster returning, this could be the year of the pacers and this game could set the tone.
"My freshmen year we played South Carolina and it was a tester and we didn't do so good in the test" said Kingsley Oguchi "Basically we're going into this game, trying to win this game, and if we think we can win this game, we think we have a great chance of winning the national championship"
"A great barometer to see where we are as a program" said coach Vince Alexander "Our guys, a lot of them, think they can play at that level, some of them have played at that level, so this gives them a chance to see what they can really do."
The Pacers also have a big addition we're going to be hearing plenty from this year, 6'7" Josh Dollard. Dollard transfered from Auburn and could easily be an impact player.
