What does USC need to do to make the NCAA Tournament?
Sweep the Washington schools and then make at least the finals of the Pac-10 Tournament. Or can the Trojans afford a split this weekend if they make the finals of the Pac-10?
Arizona State coach Herb Sendek endorsed USC’s NCAA Tournament hopes Saturday night.
“They are certainly good enough to be an NCAA team,” Sendek said. “The Pac-10 doesn’t get enough credit and they aren’t getting enough credit.”
It’s an easy victory for the Trojans, who remain in sole possession of fourth place in the Pac-10. Arizona State shot 31 percent. Nikola Vucevic led USC with 20 points and 10 rebounds in what might be his final home ame. Alex Stepheson added 15 points and 10 rebounds.
