This match-up will see the USC Trojans take on the TCU Horned Frogs. TCU beat USC last season 96-61.
The Trojans have had a relatively easy schedule to start the year. Their hardest game was probably against Temple and Marquette. It just so happens that they lost to both of these teams. Nevada is another decent team they played, expect they beat the Wolfpack. In their most recent game, they beat Harvard on a neutral site.
The offense for the Trojans has been hit or miss to say the least. They average 75 points per game, but they also have scored as many as 91 in the game against Nevada and 84 against San Diego State. They shoot 44% from the field, but just 33.7% from the three-point line.
The Trojans are led by Onyeka Okongwu. He leads the team with 17.9 points per game, 9 rebounds per game and 2.9 blocks per game. Other than him, only two other guys average more than 10 points per game.
The defense also does a pretty solid job of slowing down their opponents. They allow 67.7 points per game. Teams shoot 38.1% against them from the field, but 35.9% against them from three-point land.
The Trojans will be playing in a true road game for just the second time this season. Their key will be defending the three-point line, something they have not done well.
TCU Horned Frogs
The Horned Frogs have had a promising start to the season, only having lost once. Their one loss came against Clemson in overtime. This game against Clemson was also played on a neutral court. They also do not have that many quality wins thus far making this game important for their overall resume.
The Horned Frogs offense has overall been lackluster. They are only averaging 72.9 points per game. From the field, they shoot 44.3% and from beyond the arc, they shoot 34.8%.
Their leading scorer is Desmond Bane. He is averaging 18.7 points per game an also is second on the team in rebounds with 7.6 per game. After Bane, they have RJ Nembhard, who averages 12.8 points per game and Kevin Samuel, who averages 11.4 points per game. After Samuel, the scoring drops off to 9.7 points per game and below.
All that being said, the Horned Frogs need to have someone else step up. It does not matter who it is, but Bane cannot do everything by himself, so they will need a few more guys to score in double figures.
Defense is where TCU has been lights out. They are allowing an average of 59.6 points per game. This ranks among the top teams in the country. Teams only shoot 39.6% from the field against them, but they shoot 38.6% from three-point range.
Just like USC, the Horned Frogs must defend the three point line. That has been their biggest weakness so if the Trojans get hot from deep, it could be a rough night in Fort Worth.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Under is 9-2 in USC last 11 non-conference games.
- Under is 7-2 in USC last 9 overall.
Free USC Trojans vs. TCU Horned Frogs NCAAB Prediction:
We have two pretty solid defenses here, which leads me to believe that this game will be low scoring. I like the Horned Frogs to get the win, but I like the under to be the play.
