Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The USC basketball team is facing a tough early test Saturday as they take on the number two team in the nation.
USC travels to Ohio State to play the Buckeyes, who are currently second in the nation behind Duke. The game will be broadcast on WLTX.
The Gamecocks (7-1) have surprised some with their play this season. Some had forecasted the team to perhaps take a slide with the departure of Devan Downey and Dominque Archie.
Instead, the Gamecocks have played a strong team game as they've worked through their non-conference schedule, losing only to Michigan State. The team also snapped a losing streak to archrival Clemson during their run.
WLTX Sports' Reggie Anderson and basketball analyst Carey Rich recently discussed the team's success. You can watch their comments on the video attached to this article.
