Spartanburg, S.C. –The USC Upstate men’s soccer team caught fire at the end of the regular season and hopes to carry that momentum into action Wednesday when it opens play in the A-Sun Tournament against North Florida at 8:00 p.m. in Nashville, Tenn. The tournament is being hosted by #1 seed Lipscomb.

Upstate needed to make noise as the regular season came to an end and it did just that. The Spartans claimed back-to-back wins over Northern Kentucky and Jacksonville to earn the #5 seed in the tournament, qualifying for the conference championship for the second time since becoming eligible in 2009. The Spartans will face #4 seed North Florida in the first round.
