USC men’s basketball aiming to break Pac-12 title drought

Over the past 36 years, a lot of players have come through the USC men’s basketball program. Top picks like O.J. Mayo and Onyeka Okongwu. NBA All-Stars like DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic. Even the winningest players in program history, Jonah Mathews and Nick Rakocevic. But none have been able to lead the Trojans to a regular-season Pac-12 title since 1985. With four games left in the 2020-21 season, though, that championship is in sight for 19th-ranked USC. At 19-4 and 13-3 in the Pac-12, the...

Tahj Eaddy, Evan Mobley power USC to win over Washington State

Evan Mobley and Tahj Eaddy have been No. 20 USC’s inside-outside scoring combo all season, but no game encapsulated the dynamic quite like Saturday against Washington State. The duo combined for 49 points, a season high, as the Trojans (17-3, 11-2 in Pac-12 play) beat the Cougars 76-65 for their sixth straight victory and 12th in 13 games. Eaddy was the dominant force in the first half, dropping 18 on his way to lead all scorers a season-high 29. The senior guard’s previous high for the year was...

Grad transfer Tahj Eaddy providing steadying presence for USC men’s basketball

When Tahj Eaddy transferred from Santa Clara to the USC men’s basketball team, there was an expectation of what the graduate transfer would provide the Trojans. Shooting was expected, certainly, and some veteran poise on a team that had lost most of its leaders from the 2019-20. But the circumstances of this season have put more pressure on Eaddy’s shoulders. And he’s responded, ranking second on the team in points (12.9), assists (2.9) and 3-point percentage among players who have more than two...

USC thwarts UC Riverside’s upset bid in OT

Having lost several scheduled games to COVID-19 restrictions, USC booked a replacement game against UC Riverside for Tuesday night at the Galen Center, a mid-week game sandwiched between Pac-12 opponents. The Trojans got a little more than they likely expected from the Highlanders and needed a big overtime period from Drew Peterson to complement nice efforts from brothers Evan and Isaiah Mobley and close out a 67-62 victory. UCR used a 16-0 run in the first half to open a five-point lead at half...

USC men’s basketball could find its oasis in the desert at Arizona State

For the past decade, the Grand Canyon State has not been kind to USC men’s basketball. Prior to Thursday night, the Trojans had not won a game on a road trip to play Arizona or Arizona State since 2011, when Kevin O’Neill was head coach and Nikola Vucevic a junior. USC (7-2, 2-1 in Pac-12 play) picked up a 14-point win over the Wildcats on Thursday. And if the Trojans can pull off the sweep Saturday against the Sun Devils, they will have made a substantial statement about their status for the NC...

USC men’s basketball stifles Utah in defensive victory

USC super freshman Evan Mobley didn’t attempt a single shot from the field against Utah on Saturday. Yes, the Trojans’ leading scorer managed just three points, all on free throws. Despite how poorly that stat might seem to portend, it turned out to be inconsequential because of how the USC men’s basketball team played defense. The Trojans (6-2, 1-1 in Pac-12) smothered the Utes, holding the visitors to 27.9% shooting in the Galen Center as USC picked up a 64-46 victory. “It was a team effort, w...

USC men’s basketball gets out-hustled in loss to Colorado

USC men’s basketball’s second try at a Pac-12 opener didn’t go much better than the first. Sure, this time the Trojans were able to play against Colorado without any COVID-19-related postponements. But USC found itself unready to match the Buffaloes’ intensity in a 72-62 loss. USC (5-2, 0-1 in Pac-12 play) found itself repeatedly gashed by the smallest player on the court. Colorado’s 6-foot guard McKinley Wright IV drove into the paint at will, undermining USC’s primary defensive advantage — its...

USC men’s basketball adds depth ahead of Pac-12 opener

Let’s try this one more time, shall we? USC men’s basketball was supposed to open Pac-12 play earlier this month against Stanford. A positive COVID-19 case on the Trojans’ roster led to USC having to postpone that game and another a week later against Oregon State. So on New Year’s Eve, USC (5-1) will finally play a conference opponent when Colorado (6-2, 0-1 in Pac-12) visits the Galen Center (7 p.m., ESPN). The Trojans did what they could to stay ready while the roster was quarantined due to c...

USC basketball beats Santa Clara in return from long hiatus

LOS ANGELES — Whatever rust there was after its unplanned three-week hiatus, the USC men’s basketball team shook it off quickly enough on Tuesday afternoon. After canceling or postponing four games due to COVID-19 spread on the roster, the Trojans retook the Galen Center court with a businesslike 86-63 victory over Santa Clara. But as USC (5-1) cleaned off some of the cobwebs, it was greeted with a pleasant development: Isaiah Mobley had found his shot during the down time. “He’s getting better....

USC men’s basketball sees progress before Pac-12 opener

Tuesday’s win over UC Irvine was an important one for USC men’s basketball. First of all, the Trojans wanted to bounce back from their first loss of the season, and they did that with one of their more complete performances of the young campaign. USC also needed to pick up a win and a little momentum heading into Sunday’s Pac-12 opener against Stanford at 6:30 p.m. at Galen Center. It’s an early first conference game for the Trojans (4-1), in mid-December rather than late January, due to the Pac...

Transfer Drew Peterson granted immediate eligibility for USC men’s basketball

The USC men’s basketball rotation for the 2020-21 season got a little deeper on Friday with the announcement that Rice transfer Drew Peterson has been granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA. Peterson, a junior, averaged 11.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game as a sophomore at Rice. At 6-foot-8, he provides the versatility to guard multiple positions. “Drew’s really impressed us as a staff with his ability to pick up a different system,” USC head coach Andy Enfield said on his Frid...

West Marin wildfire evacuation threat lifts as smoky tint descends

Evacuation warnings in West Marin were lifted Wednesday afternoon as the Woodward fire in Point Reyes National Seashore nears total containment. Meanwhile, smoke from wildfires elsewhere mixed with a thick marine layer blocking the sun, turning the sky a doomsday orange throughout Marin and the Bay Area. “It’s overcast with smoke over the entire state,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Drew Peterson. “It’s just a complete smoke-out.” The view from "Mount Vision" near Point Reyes per ...

Unprecedented smoke layer darkens Bay Area skies as massive wildfires burn

Smoke from massive wildfires burning throughout the western United States blotted out the sun across the Bay Area and much of Northern California on Wednesday morning, casting skies in an orange glow that seemed like the stuff of science fiction and scrambling weather forecasts that couldn’t account for the unprecedented blanket over the atmosphere. The darkness forced drivers to turn their headlights on and triggered streetlights that illuminated sidewalks at noon. It dropped temperatures on wh...
