USC holds its first basketball practice tonight in preparation for its August trip to Brazil. Forward Dewayne Dedmon, forward Aaron Fuller and guard/forward Byron Wesley have been impressive this summer at Trade Tech and this trip will definitely help the team get used to life without Nikola Vucevic and that killer schedule this season.
Former USC swimmer Rebecca Soni is on pace to win another gold medal at the World Swimming Championships and finishing first in the semifinals of the 200-meter breaststroke. Soni was more than two seconds ahead of the rest of the field.
Interestingly, Trojan Swim Club member Yuliya Efimova had the second-fastest time. Too bad she didn’t go to USC.
Looks like Reggie Bush is getting traded to Miami. Maybe returning the Heisman Trophy can be part of the deal.
UPDATED: Bush signed a 2-year deal with the Dolphins worth a total of $9.75 million.
