Drake, Ezeli to start tonight at USC

Joe Fisher and Tim Thompson just announced on their pregame radio show that Festus Ezeli and George Drake will be in the starting lineup for the Commodores tonight at South Carolina.

Ezeli will replace sophomore A.J. Ogilvy, who's battling a bruised right heel as well as an upper respiratory virus. Drake will start in place of freshman Brad Tinsley.

"George has played well and given us a spark in the last few games," said head coach Kevin Stallings.

This will be the Commodores' eighth different starting lineup on the year. It will be Ezeli's fifth start and Drake's third. Junior Jermaine Beal and freshman Jeffery Taylor have been the two constants in the lineup.

Tipoff is set for 6 p.m. CT. The game won't be televised, but you can listen to the action live on
