This is USC’s second-straight trip to the Big Dance, and its sixth berth in the last 11 years. The Trojans create trouble solely on scoring and more scoring, averaging nearly 80 points per game while shooting above 50 percent from the floor. There are four players scoring in double figures for this team this season—with Bennie Boatwright and Chimezie Metu leading the way with at least 14 points per outing. USC is a +30,000 long shot in this year’s NCAA Tournament.
While the offense causes chaos for opponents, the defense does the opposite. The Trojans rank 194th in the nation in points given up (73.2) and allow close to 30 field goals made per game, including 8.4 threes, both also among the worst this season.
