The USC Aiken athletic department will hold a special Education Day as part of the USC Aiken-King men’s basketball game at the Convocation Center at 3 p.m. on Dec. 30.


Education Day will allow all elementary, middle and high school students from the area to attend the game for free. All school faculty and staff members from the area will also be allowed to attend the game for free, but must bring a valid identification.


The contest on Education Day between USCA (6-2, 2-0 PBC) and King (7-1, 3-0 Conference Carolinas) will feature two of the top teams in the NCAA Division II Southeast Region.


USCA enters the game against King in the midst of a program-record 20-game regular-season home winning streak.


The Pacers have won their last four games this season, including Wednesday’s 776-67 triumph over Paine College.


The USCA-King game will be sponsored by Johnson, Johnson & Whittle.
