USC Trojans – March Madness Team Predictions, Odds and Preview 2016

East No. 8 – USC Trojans (Overall: 21-12, Conf: 9-9)

Team Strengths


USC has one of the most prolific offenses in the country, as it is averaging 80.8 PPG and is shooting 52.0 percent from the field. A testament to this is the Trojan’s starting unit that’s averaging 58.6 PPG and Jordan McLaughlin, in particular, has been leading the charge with 13.4 PPG, 3.7 RPG and 4.7 APG across his name. So long as McLaughlin and the rest of the Trojans remain this successful on offense, they should be able to compete with almost any team in the tournament and inevitably pull off some upsets.

Team Weaknesses

Defense, defense and defense are the main weaknesses for the Trojans, who are allowing 74.8 PPG in the regular season. If they continue play this sloppy on this side of the court, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them get quickly eliminated by the Providence Friars in the first round of the tournament.
