Augusta, Ga--Just 24 hours away from GRU Augusta Vs USC Aiken, take two. Second time this month the two teams will square off as the Jags go for the regular season sweep of the Pacers.

First time around it was a blowout win for the visiting team as Dip Metress and the boys had things rolling all night. Oh, how things have changed. USC Aiken has all but clinched the eastern division and a win could almost assure them hosting the regional. Pacers playing with a little chip on their shoulder after being humbled at home and know they'll need to crank it up to another level tomorrow night.

"They execut better then any team that you will run into" said Vince Alexander "You need to be ready to play. As far as motivation, we're focused on our goals, we're not focused on one game"

"It'll be a physical game" said Dip Metress "They have five guys they can rotate in the post. I think everything goes with their back court and (Paul) Larsen. If (Ronald) Zimmerman is hitting his shots, and he makes a bunch of them, and DeVontae Wright is controling the game, it'll give us some trouble, and then Larsen is a handful."

Regardless of the outcome the Jags will be the two seed out of the Peach Belt eastern division in the conference tournament. They would also like to gain some much need momentum this final week of the regular season.
