Coach Tim Floyd said USC will play its inaugural game at the Galen Center against South Carolina.
USC experienced difficulty finding an opponent for its first game at the new arena, but the Gamecocks needed a second game in Southern California after scheduling UC Irvine next season. The Trojans will also play a home-and-home series beginning next season with The Citadel, which means they will play South Carolina and The Citadel on the same road swing.
USCs second home game will be against St. Marys.
