In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Southern Utah at USC.
The Southern Utah Thunderbirds snapped their losing streak with a 78-69 OT win over Pepperdine Waves and improved to 5-3 on the season. They have been very inconsistent and all of their wins are coming against much weaker sides. Offensively, they are averaging 83.1 points per game on 45.4% shooting from the floor. They have 4 players averaging in double digits but the leading scorer is averaging just 13.6 points per game, Cameron Oluyitan. Defensively, they are allowing 72.3 points per game.
The USC Trojans are clearly the better side but they are 5-6 because of their inexperienced play. The Trojans are currently on a 4-game losing streak after dropping the game against Santa Barbara in double OT, 102-92. The team is struggling offensively and it is averaging 78.7 points per game. They lack a leading scorer who can rescue them in tough situations. Defensively, they are allowing 77.5 points per game.
USC has the ability to turn the season around and this could all well start here at home. They are more talented than the Thunderbirds and if the defense steps up, they will cover the spread with ease.
