USC has put together a good record to start the year but there are still questions as to how good this team really is.
UCLA is happy to welcome their basketball little brother for an education. These are fun tilts.
14-3 looks very good for USC, especially when you consider that it includes a 3-1 start to PAC 12 play. They are coming off a home overtime win against Arizona something they never really could have expected in the past. Perhaps the coach finally has the players and style that he wants. This team is in the top 20 scoring wise at more than 80ppg.
USC does have some talent…and surprising depth – 6 players average between 10 and 14ppg led by speedy point guard Jordan McLaughlin. They also have size with Nikola Jovanovic and Bennie Boatright.
The recruiting has improved a lot over the last couple of years and they have enough talent to compete with anyone in the conference right now. Including NCAA hoops royalty UCLA.
It has been an up and down season the Bruins. They beat Kentucky but lost to UNC. They lost their opening conference games on the road to the Washington schools but just too both Arizona schools at home.
What is this team’s level.
There is no shortage of talent. The problem may be the triggerman who just happens to be the coach’s son. Bryce Alford is a good player but perhaps looks for his offense a little too much.
UCLA gets big time production inside from the likes of Tony Parker and Thomas Welsh. Both can get a double-double any game, or in the same game.
This team would really benefit from a top level sniper.
I know all teams want great outside shooting but if this group finds it their ceiling gets really high.
