USC will play the winner of Wichita State/Drake in its first-round game of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday in Indianapolis.
Wichita State went 16-5 and split two games with top-10 ranked Houston. Drake is 25-4 and went 1-2 vs. Top 25-ranked Loyola of Chicago.
If USC wins, it likely faces Kansas, who will play Eastern Washington.
Kansas withdrew from the Big 12 Tournament and two players didn’t even go to the Big 12 Tournament because of COVID-19 protocols.
Here’s an update on Kansas from Coach Bill Self.
