WACH: SC State men's basketball prepare for Wisconsin, UCLA in four-game road trip
ORANGEBURG, SC (WACH) -- On Thursday, the South Carolina State men's basketball team will pack their bags for a nine-day road trip, which will feature two teams who reached the Elite 8 last year.
The Bulldogs will start the year at Wisconsin before playing Boston College, Yale and UCLA before returning to the Carolinas for their home-opener against Central Arkansas State.
"It's going to be difficult, but it's fair," said head coach Murray Garvin, who's entering his sixth season as head coach of the Bulldogs. "It's going to be a great experience. For these guys to play at the places that we're going, they're going to remember this for the rest of their lives."
South Carolina State is coming off an (11-20) season that featured Wichita State, South Carolina and Syracuse in their first four games last season.
