Jan 11, 2022

The USC men's volleyball team returns home after going 2-0 to open the season to compete in the Galen Center for the first time in 2022. The Trojans host Princeton on Wednesday (Jan. 12) at 7 p.m. PT, and Erskine on Friday (Jan. 14) at 10 a.m. PT. 

This will not only be Princeton's first match of the season, but the Tigers' first match since March 2020 as the Ivy League schools did not compete in any spring sports in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Erskine concluded the 2021 season going 9-15 and 4-9 in Conference Carolinas. They lost to Emmanuel College (Ga.) in the First Round of the conference championship.
