COLUMBIA (WACH)- Frank Martin and the Gamecocks will hit the road to Waco, Texas on November 12 to face the defending NIT Champions Baylor as part of ESPN's 24-hour Hoops Marathon. Tip off is set for 3:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.
This marks the second time USC has taken part in this event, the first coming back in 2010 when the Gamecocks traveled to East Lansing where they fell to then No. 2 Michigan State 82-73.
The Gamecocks are 2-2 all-time versus the Bears. The Gamecocks won the last meeting in Waco, 85-84, when Zam Fredrick hit the game-winning bucket with just 5.1 seconds left in 2009.
USC plans to release the rest of its non-conference schedule in the upcoming weeks.
