Final: Oregon State 80, USC 76

Oregon State made 55 percent of its shots against USC’s defense and outrebounded USC, 34-32. Those are the two things Kevin O’Neill said are his team’s identity, and the Trojans get swept by the Oregon schools for the second consecutive year. USC came in with a 2-1 Pac-10 conference mark and is now 2-3 with big holes in the defense.

  • USC Owns the Rose BowI

    Thanks Jill! Now can you tell us why we suck so bad?

    Our footbal team is in the toilet…our B-Ball team sucks…our baseball team is a joke…our reputation is in shambles (e.g. Real Sports year-end episode had hatchet jobs on both Ceasar/Reggie and Kiff).

    Jill, sorry you got stuck covering such a lame school.

  • Gargamel is a hack

    What gives, Jill? No juvenile, petty, rambling posts about Scotty’s Caesarhawks? I mean this is a USC blog after all. Must we wait for Scotty to return from his jaunt with Trojan Reach Around?

    Looks like a huge let down after the big win over the ruins. As long as we sweep at home and split on the road we’ll be fine. We just have to steal a game when we play at Zona. They looked beatable in the Scum Devil game.
