USC is sending 43 athletes to the Rio Olympics, including the nine for water polo above. For a look at who is going from USC, click here.
The Pac-12 released the pairings for conference basketball teams, meaning the weeks each school plays a pair of conference opponents, though not specific dates. The Los Angeles schools (USC, UCLA) do not play in the Bay Area against traditional opponents Cal and Stanford.

I usually get irritated when I look at sports auctions for two reasons: I always find something USC-related that has no business being sold and I wonder how it ever left the athletic dept.?
Let’s look at the below items. A national championship trophy from 1974 and the 1974 MacArthur Bowl Trophy. Neither of these things should ever have left Heritage Hall. They were part of the Newport Sports Museum Collection. The museum used to be in Newport Beach. Heaven forbid the museum simply donate it back to USC instead of selling it off.
This is hardly unique. When Heritage Hall was renovated, trophies were stored just about anywhere, including in unsecured storage areas where people could sneak off with them if they wanted it bad enough.
I’ve added a list of names after the jump:
With most media days already over now that the Pac-12 held its own earlier tthan ever, it means most of the preseason media polls are out. And USC is one of only two defending division champions from last season not chosen to repeat. The other is Florida. UCLA and Tennessee were selected instead.
