Augusta, Ga--It was just about a month ago, USC Aiken knocked off Augusta at Christenberry to solidify their spot atop the Peach Belt standings. Tomorrow night, the rematch with plenty at stake. First place and possibly home games in the conference tourney, and maybe even further.
The first meeting was tight throughout with 14 ties and lead changes and most every category identicle. That's what happens when it's just a three point game. Since then, Augusta hasn't lost and are riding an eight game win streak. So what do they need to do differently this time around?
"We turned the ball over, especially, crutially late, our young freshmen turned the ball over, uncharacteristically so we've got to not turn the ball over, rebound the basketball. So those are two keys going into Wednesday's match up." said Dip Metress.
Metress feels his first year players are even better than a month ago. Throw in the fact Deane Williams is playing as good as anyone in the conference, expect another thriller tomorrow night in Aiken.
