Utah squeaked out a victory over Stanford and now leads USC by two games in the Pac-12 basketball standings following the Trojans’ 56-52 loss to Arizona State. If would the Trojans finish 12th, they play the fifth-place team in the Pac-12. That would be Oregon if the season ended today.
Matt Kalil ran the 40 in 4.99 seconds, the third-fastest time among offensive linemen. Kalil was one of only three linemen to break the five-second barrier.

USC offensive tackle Matt Kalil measured 6-6.5 and 306 pounds at the NFL combine. He also benchpressed 225 pounds a very respectable 31 times.

USC point guard Maurice Jones missed 30 of 39 shots in USC’s past three games.

“Mark’s had a great start to his career,” Carroll said. “He’s an extraordinary quarterback and kid, and there’s nothing to hold him (back) from being a really big-time player.”
The big question when coaches get to visit high schools is whether Ed Orgeron ever crosses paths with Adrian Klemm. It might rival the infamous Orgeron-Gary Bernardi meeting in Santa Clarita that nearly resulted in an altercation.
