Alexander: UCLA’s Michaela Onyenwere delivers on emotional Senior Night

Michaela Onyenwere tried her best not to let her emotions get the best of her Friday night. It was Senior Night for the UCLA women’s basketball program, albeit a virtual one – parents and family members celebrated with their daughters via the video board at Pauley Pavilion, rather than in person – but it was still the last home game, four years of triumphs and struggles distilled into 40 minutes against crosstown rival USC. This night it was triumphs, overwhelmingly. The Bruins smoked the Trojan...

Pac-12 leader UCLA knows it won’t sneak up on Colorado

Naturally, the weight of anything feels heavier as time goes on. Circumstance will do that, especially in a basketball game with time and score always looming. That seems to be the feel as UCLA approaches the final three games of the regular season, starting with a road game at Colorado at 7 p.m. Saturday in Boulder on ESPN2. UCLA (17-5, 13-3) and Colorado (18-7, 12-6) are coming off comfortable victories. The Bruins took down Utah 76-61 on Thursday night. The Buffs handed USC an 80-62 drubbing ...

USC men’s basketball at pivotal point before postseason

USC men’s basketball is the midst of its worst stretch of the season. Granted, the 19th-ranked Trojans have set the bar high with a 19-5 record and 13-4 mark in the Pac-12. But Thursday’s 18-point loss to Colorado marked the first time all season USC has lost two of three games. This is not to say it’s time to panic about USC; that would be an overreaction, especially given the most recent defeats came at the hands of two of the Pac-12’s best teams. But the Trojans have reached a crossroads at t...

UCLA, USC renew women’s basketball rivalry on the rebound

The UCLA and USC women’s basketball teams meet Friday night to end the regular season with a rivalry matchup and something to prove. “I want us to respond. And I want us to get better. And I want us to be incredibly focused and competitive and I want us to honor our seniors,” UCLA coach Cori Close said during media availability Wednesday. The No. 10 Bruins have the opportunity to complete a regular-season sweep of the Trojans after beating them 73-52 on Dec. 13 at the Galen Center. USC (10-10, 8...

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...

USC men’s basketball has no more room for error in conference title quest

In one Saturday, all of USC’s room for error disappeared. With the 17th-ranked Trojans’ 81-72 loss to Arizona and UCLA’s 80-79 win over Arizona State, USC lost its solo grip on first place in the Pac-12. Instead, the Trojans and Bruins are tied at 12-3. So USC has five games left to play, including a finale against UCLA, with no margin left for missteps if the Trojans (18-4 overall) are going to win their first regular-season conference title since 1985. The tightrope walk begins with this three...

USC falls to Arizona, snapping 7-game win streak

After a quiet first half, No. 17 USC knew it would need a herculean effort from center Evan Mobley to come back against Arizona on Saturday at the Galen Center. The Trojans got it, with the 7-foot freshman scoring 19 of his 23 after halftime. But with little help from the rest of his teammates, it wasn’t enough as Arizona beat USC 71-62, ending the Trojans’ seven-game winning streak. It was clear from the start that USC (18-4, 12-3 in Pac-12) was going to have its hands full against a feisty Ari...

USC guard Tahj Eaddy has risen to his own challenge

When Tahj Eaddy hooped at Santa Clara, his favorite vacation spot was Los Angeles. Many of his teammates were from L.A., so when they had a long weekend, they headed south to enjoy the beaches. “I was always in L.A.,” Eaddy said. When Eaddy made the decision to transfer for his final year of eligibility, it wasn’t such a big deal that he couldn’t visit USC’s campus when the Trojans came recruiting. But USC wasn’t the only finalist for his services with whom Eaddy was familiar. Connecticut, his h...

USC men’s basketball shuffles schedule to add game against Oregon

The USC men’s basketball team has a new schedule update, hopefully for the last time. The 17th-ranked Trojans will host Oregon on Feb. 22, moving USC’s game against Stanford previously scheduled for that date to the week of March 1, the Pac-12 announced on Thursday. The game between the Trojans and Ducks will tip off at 6 p.m. on Fox Sports 1. The exact date and time of the game against Stanford has yet to be determined. The Trojans and Cardinal both have games scheduled for March 6, but otherwi...

Where USC men’s basketball must improve before March

With 17 days to go in the regular season, the USC men’s basketball has seven games left to play. Six already have dates set in stone, with the make-up game against Oregon still up in the air but likely to be played the final week of the season before the Trojans’ rematch with UCLA. There are many reasons for USC (17-3 overall, 11-2 in Pac-12) to feel good about where it sits right now: Ranked 17th in the country, first place in the Pac-12 and winners of 12 of the last 13 games. But there are sti...

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...

USC focuses on defense knowing the points will follow

USC men’s basketball’s win over Washington on Thursday was a pretty good encapsulation of who the Trojans have been this season. Suffocating on defense. And then someone – just don’t ask who on any particular day – is going to come up big on offense. So far the, formula is working. USC (16-3) is ranked 20th in the country and is alone atop the Pac-12 standings at 10-2. “I think this team starts at the defensive end. You also see we’re very streaky offensively,” head coach Andy Enfield said after...

How USC men’s basketball is handling leading the Pac-12

For a team picked to finish sixth in its conference, USC men’s basketball is in pretty good shape heading into the final nine games of the season. At 15-3 and 9-2 in conference play, the Trojans are tied with UCLA atop the Pac-12 standings, but currently hold the tiebreaker due to Saturday’s 18-point win over the Bruins. Ranked 20th in the country, USC is the lone Pac-12 team in the AP Top 25. So with less than a month to play, the Trojans are in the driver’s seat with their first regular-season...

USC men’s basketball enters AP Top 25 for first time this season

After big wins over Stanford and UCLA last week, the USC men’s basketball team has entered the AP Top 25 for the first time this season. The Trojans debuted in the poll at No. 20, the lone Pac-12 representative in the poll. USC appeared in 60 of 63 polls and received 411 points. USC is currently 15-3 and 9-2 in conference play. The Trojans are in the first place in the Pac-12 after Saturday’s 18-point win over then-ranked UCLA. USC and the Bruins are technically tied atop the conference standing...

USC hope new assistants’ familiarity in Air Raid breeds stronger run game

It’s a tangled web coordinator Graham Harrell weaved as he filled out the USC offensive staff this winter. First, he hired former colleague Clay McGuire to coach the offensive line. The pair worked together for two seasons at Washington State, and McGuire was on staff at Texas Tech when Harrell was the Red Raiders’ quarterback. Then Harrell promoted Seth Doege, after two seasons as an analyst, to tight ends coach. Like Harrell and McGuire, Doege is a former Texas Tech quarterback. He was recruit...

UCLA men’s basketball knows the USC rivalry game runs deep

If UCLA’s Jake Kyman gets another chance, it won’t be squandered. In the winding moments of last year’s men’s basketball game against USC, Kyman was freed up for a 3-pointer in the final minute that could’ve been the anchoring shot to a potential Bruin victory. Instead, Kyman lost his footing and fell before the ball even got to his hands. The ball flew out of bounds. Moments later, Jonah Matthew drilled a game-winning 3-pointer to give the Trojans a 54-52 win at the Galen Center. “It stuck with...
