USC started the season very strong and with 23 wins already banked and an over .500 record in the league looks like a tournament sure thing. It is logical but I am not sure they can survive a first round tournament loss.
Washington has had one of the best players in the nation all season long but the team has been a disappointment. What are the chances that player can lead the team to actual success on the court.
All season long the Huskies have been trying to answer the question of just what a truly elite talent is worth. They won just two leagues games this season, which is pretty pathetic.
That talent is Markelle Fultz. He averaged 23ppg with close to six assist and six rebounds per contest but the team struggled all season long. Still he might be the top pick in the draft in June. At least Ben Simmons got his team on the bubble.
Combining with Fultz, David Crisp forms one of the best backcourts in the league. Crisp is a small guard who was better as a sophomore than a frosh but not by much. He turns the ball over too many times and is just a good, not great, shooter.
Washington has lots of athletes but perhaps not that much talent. This could easily be the last game for Fultz on campus unless he is interested in sticking around to play with another phenom next year in Michael Porter Jr.
USC is a good team but nobody thought coming into the season that they would be in the same league as Arizona, Oregon or UCLA. Those were the sources of 5 of their league losses (though they did take one from UCLA and were competitive against the Wildcats).
This team can compete thanks to an ability to get up and down the court and put the ball in the basket. Jordan McLaughlin is a tough PG to stay in front of and he is getting better as a shooter.
The Trojans have bigs that can score in Bennie Boatright and Chimezie Metu. Both are sophomores and it would be great if the both stuck around for at least one more year. Boatright missed time in the middle of the season but looks to be in form now.
I think USC has to be a sleeper in this tournament. They still might have something to prove and are a nice underdog play against some pretty big chalk out there at the top of the league – three teams in the top 7.

Free Washington Huskies vs. USC Trojans NCAAB Prediction:
All season long I have been assuming that Washington can’t be as bad as they have been and have been getting burned. I guess that is a shame on me situation.
USC has a level but I think they will cruise in their opening round game. I am hoping they don’t though so I can parlay the result further in the tournament.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Washington +11
This number cam in a little larger than expected. I don’t see an upset but the Huskies are desperate enough to keep it close.
