Both of these teams are probably already looking at conference tournament championships only in terms of qualifying for the Big Dance. That has to be disappointment.
USC came into the season hoping for at least that with a roster that might have a couple of NBA prospects on it.
The Utes saw their four game winning streak come to an end with back to back home losses to the Oregon schools. They are a game over .500 in the conference so far.
Utah puts the ball through the hoop at a good percentage from the field and from deep but they are not a high scoring team. They don’t play especially so hanging on to the ball could be the issue.
Sedrick Barefield is the leading scorer and top assist man for the Utes but he is probably not suited for the latter role. His shooting is up though, which is why he is at 16ppg.
Utah normally has a big man or two but there is not much inside presence on this team, offensively or defensively. They are especially light guarding at the rim.
At 6-3 the Trojans are one of three teams in second place behind Washington, who has yet to lose a conference game. USC probably has as much talent as any team though.
Bennie Boatright is a prototypical stretch four of the modern game. He should provide more in terms of defense and rebounding but he can make shots.
Inside Nick Rakocevic is much more rugged and is thisclose to averaging a double-double. He can make his foul shots too so you can play him in any situation.
All the experts say Kevin Porter could be a lottery pick but some nights he comes off the bench and is barely noticeable. If he gets more consistent this team can really put some wins together.

Free Utah Utes vs. USC Trojans NCAAB Prediction:
USC is a solid favourite at home and I like them in this spot against a limited Utah team. They can dominate here.
The key for backing the Trojans is not letting past disappointments get you totally off this team the talent is there to win every night.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: USC -7
Obviously a smaller number would provide more comfort but I expect them to win by 10 at home.
