USC was down to Northwestern, 2-0, but the Trojans won two matches to tie it up. The final match then went to extra holes, where Gabby Then’s putt to send the match to another extra hole was just short. Northwestern won, 3-2, to advance to the championship match against Arizona State.
USC guard Shaqquan Aaron, who declared for the NBA draft but did not hire an agent, will return for his junior season, according to a source. The news was first reported by Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.
Aaron’s return doesn’t really alter things too much. His role was reduced by the end of the season with the increased role of Jonah Mathews. And it didn’t seem like even the coaches were too worried if Aaron returned. But you can never have enough players.
