UCLA leads USC 46-35 at halftime. The Trojans jumped out to an early lead (12-9) but then got outscored 20-5. USC coach Andy Enfield got a technical foul after he was upset about a foul not being called. Katin Reinhardt is surprisingly off to a hot start and has 12 points. USC shot 54.9 percent.
Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick is currently the only scholarship tight end in spring practice. USC signed Tyler Petite last month. And there’s talk linebackers Porter Gustin and Osa Masina could play the spot. So it’s obviously the position of need for the Trojans now.
USC tight end Bryce Dixon was dismissed from the team today because of the previously mentioned student-conduct issue. The incident involved a USC female student. Dixon was brought back after being suspended for the Cal game but then came today’s news, so obviously the matter was not settled.
