USC Plays Providence In An NCAA Tournament First Four Game

USC makes the NCAA Tournament. And it gets a rematch with Providence. This time it’s at Dayton for a First Four play-in game. If USC wins, it faces SMU. The Trojans defeated the Mustangs, 78-73, in November at the Galen Center.

Providence (20-12) no longer has point guard Kris Dunn or power forward Ben Bentil from last year’s team, so USC has to be the favorite. I doubt Andy Enfield wants a rematch with SMU, however. Did the NCAA really have to schedule these rematches?

UPDATED: USC-Providence will be Wednesday at around 6:10 p.m. on truTV.

    I doubt the NCAA cared about rematches in seeds that low, Scottie…

    How many rebounds does Boatwright average per game? I think it is only 3-5.

    • Alvarado

      How much ball washing is ‘Lomar’ going to do in the European League? has to leave because he doesn’t want to deal with his younger super player brother next year at bel-air tech

    ESPN’s panel is destroying the USC pick. Hear that Trojan team? They think you’re unworthy! They don’t think you belong! So, what are you gonna do about it?

      Good point. Should be bulletin board fodder. ESPN loves getting outraged about 18 win ACC teams getting hosed.
