9. USC Trojans (6-6) LW: 10
Coach Andy Enfield picked up win No. 100 at USC with a 91-49 rout over Southern Utah University. While his squad sits at 6-6, the Trojans might be better than that record indicates.
The worst result on their resume is a double overtime loss on the road to Santa Clara. Other losses have come at the hands of Vanderbilt, 11-1 Oklahoma, 10-1 TCU, No. 11 Texas Tech, and No. 6 Nevada.
On the flip side, USC doesn’t have any wins that prove they really are better than a .500 team.
Thus far, the Trojans have contributing players, but none who have stood out. Five players score in double digits but none average more than 15.1 points per game.
On the bright side, the offense for USC is designed to be balanced, enabling a player to have an off-night without the outcome of a game being predetermined. However, the Trojans are in dire need of a go-to scorer that could’ve been the difference in stealing a win over Nevada or Texas Tech.
USC will have a couple days off for Christmas before taking on UC Davis at home in their non-conference finale.
From what we have seen so, USC will continue to struggle until they find a guy who can take over the game and get big buckets when the Trojans need them most.
