USC Basketball: The Trojans roll Stanford 69-53

The game may have been on TV out west but it was PPV here in NYC.

After coming off a squeaker over Cal on Thursday night 'SC won in convincing fashion over Stanford.

Stanford is a shell of its former self when they had the twin towers so I am not going to be fooled because of the "dominant" win. I won't deny that a sweep of the NorCal schools is nice but I am not going to get too excited.

This team still has a long way to go and I am still not sure if Kevin O'Neill is right man for the job but I am not going to turn down ANY win at this point of the season.

It was nice to read that Alex Stepheson made his presence known last night. He has had a string of games where he simply vanished.

Kind of like what we have been seeing from Jio Fontain of late...he'll get it back on track so it is nice see other players step up when others struggle.

Anyway.......

From The LAT

Nikola Vucevic scored 19 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, and Alex Stepheson added 15 points Saturday night, leading USC to a 69-53 victory against Stanford.

Donte Smith had 13 points, and Maurice Jones came off the bench for the second time this season and scored 10 for the Trojans (15-12, 7-7 Pacific 10 Conference), who beat Stanford at Maples Pavilion for the first time since Feb. 21, 2002, and swept the regular-season series.

I guess Maurice Jones is finding his groove.

Its hard to know just where this team will end up, they're just too spotty.
