Recommended Posts

Nebraska plays host to a 3-3 USC team. They are currently favored by 1.5. Should be a good game. I will be watching at work. Will post updates for those who can't watch the BTN at 7 pm.

Here's part of an article from Huskers.com


Scouting USC

The USC Trojans come to Lincoln Monday evening with a 3-3 record, but have not played since a 66-60 loss to No. 25 San Diego State on Nov. 25. Kevin O'Neill is in his fourth season as USC's head coach and led the Trojans to the 2011 NCAA Tournament where they lost to Final Four participant VCU. O'Neill has had stops at Northwestern, Arizona, Tennessee and Marquette as well as the NBA's Toronto Raptors. NU assistant coach Ben Johnson played for O'Neill at Northwestern in 1999-2000, leading the Wildcats in scoring (11.6) as he became just the fourth freshman at the time to lead Northwestern in scoring.

USC is a completely retooled team after winning just six games as the team was hit by a rash of season-ending injuries. In all, the Trojans lost three starters to season-ending injuries, including one to point guard Jio Fontan on the team's overseas trip. This season, the Trojans started with a pair of wins before a 1-2 showing at the Maui Invitational, where they defeated Texas and lost to both Illinois and Marquette.

The Trojans are led by junior guard J.T. Terrell, who began his career at Wake Forest and averages a team-high 12.5 points per game. He also leads the squad in 3-pointers (12) and is second in free throws (17). Fontan orchestrates the attack, as he averages 6.0 assists and has a 2-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio after returning from a torn ACL in August of 2010. In all, four of USC's top five scorers did not play in 2011-12.
