A very crucial game takes place for the USC Trojans as they open the conference tournament against UCLA in what is seemingly an absolute must win game.
Both teams are considered bubble teams, but it’s like UCLA would need a deep run to even make the committee think on them.
USC is certainly on the bubble and an early exit here could result in them getting bursted.
UCLA won their final games last season and stole a win in the Pac-12 tourney to completely change the committee’s mind about their NCAA Tournament status.
This year, not so much. UCLA has dropped 4 straight games and comes limping into the tourney as they failed to secure a .500 conference record. Now, it look as if a very deep run or only a conference championship can save them.
Bryce Alford is expected to play, despite taking a shot to the chin in the season finale against Oregon State.
Alford has been the most productive Bruin this season as he averages 36.3 minutes per game and really provides this team with a boost on both ends of the floor. Alford has averaged 16.3 points per game to go along with 5.3 assists.
The Trojans looked like the only question would be what seed they would get in the NCAA Tournament.
USC sat tied for 2nd in the Pac-12 in February it look liked they would be serious contenders down the stretch of this season for a title in the conference. Then, an 8 day lay off changed everything.
The Trojans dropped 2 in row and 6 of 8 overall to close the regular season out as they simply looked lost and were playing with no confidence whatsoever.
Now, the Trojans seriously have to worry about their bubble status as they sit with 11 losses. A loss in the first round to UCLA would really put a damper on them in the committee’s eyes.
Their RPI is impressive at 43, along with SOS that sits at 35.
