This is a coaches’ tribute at Heritage Hall. An obvious omission is men’s basketball and any mention of someone like Bob Boyd. The display apparently only includes coaches’ who won national titles but the title is “A History Of Leadership,” not “National Championship Coaches.”
But this is why basketball’s often been referred to as the step-child sport at USC. Boyd was the coach the last time USC defeated a No. 1 team in 1970, when the Trojans upset UCLA, 87-86. It was the Bruins’ second loss ever at Pauley Pavilion. Boyd also defeated No. 1-ranked UCLA in 1969, the Bruins’ first loss at Pauley Pavilion.
