Spartanburg, S.C. –
The USC Upstate men's basketball team will play its final two regular season home games this week as it hosts the Stetson Hatters and Florida Gulf Coast Eagles in ASUN action from the G.B. Hodge Center.

Upstate will play host to Stetson on Thursday evening at 7 p.m. before entertaining Florida Gulf Coast at 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Following the game on Saturday against FGCU, the Spartans will honor seniors Josh Cuthbertson and Michael Buchanan during their Senior Day ceremony.

Upstate is looking for its third straight win after sweeping a pair of road games in the state of Florida last week over Jacksonville and North Florida. The Spartans overcame a 12-point halftime deficit to defeat Jacksonville 70-67 and followed with their first win at UNF Arena since the 2014-15 season with an 84-71 victory over North Florida. Mike Cunningham scored a career-high 28 points in the win at North Florida, while Buchanan recorded back-to-back double-doubles.

For his performance last week in the two games, Buchanan was named the ASUN Player of the Week on Monday by both the league and College Sports Madness. It was Buchanan's fourth career ASUN Player of the Week recognition and third this season.

Upstate leads the all-time series over Stetson 10-8 but trail Florida Gulf Coast 14-6. The Spartans won the first meetings this season against both programs, defeating Stetson 97-86 and Florida Gulf Coast 62-60.
