The USC Upstate women’s basketball team returns to action Saturday afternoon as it completes a three-game home stand against the East Tennessee State Buccaneers at 4:30 p.m. from the Hodge Center.

The Spartans enter the contest 11-11 overall and 6-5 in the league, while the Buccaneers are 7-15 on the season and 3-8 in conference play.

The Spartans rallied from 11 points down in the game’s final eight minutes to defeat the Buccaneers after Alex Stanford scored the game-winner on her layup with two seconds left. Brittany Clency recorded a game-high 14 points for Upstate, while Stanford and Sharmayne Edwards each had 11.
