Senior guard Deonte Alexander and sophomore forward Malcolm Smith lead the Purple and Gold averaging 12.3 points per game each. The Bisons also continue to get double-digit scoring from redshirt freshman center Stephen Hurt, who averages 11.7 points per contest and sophomore forward Martin Smith, who is scoring 10.2 points per night.
Upstate is led by sophomore forward Torrey Craig, the second-leading scorer in the A-Sun, and his 17.1 points per game average.
