USC Aiken's season rolls on, and they aren't expecting to wrap it up quite yet.
For only the second time in school history, the 20th ranked Pacers are headed to the Division 2 Sweet Sixteen.
Given that it was five years ago, not one current Pacers player knows what it's like to be on the court this late in the season.
No surprise...there's plenty of excitement in Aiken.
Head Coach Vince Alexander said, "By the grace of God, we're going to get over the hump this time. We're not laying down, and we're going to get over the hump. We're going to be ready to go, and you know, if God has it, then so be it. That's what we're going to do, and we're going to do our best to head to Louisville."
Senior guard Re'Mon Nelson added, "Be able to play and be able to reach another goal if we win the game, but it's also just another game for us. We came in wanting to win three games one game at a time, and this is just the third game that we need to win."
The Pacers hit their home court Tuesday night at 7:00 against Barton. The winner moves on to Louisville for the Elite Eight.
