USC Adds Three-Star SF Malik Marquetti

After losing their leading scorer yesterday, USC men's basketball announced the addition of 6-6 athletic wing Malik Marquetti (Millikan HS, Long Beach, Calif.) who was named the Moore League MVP last season for his rigorous style of play. He ended the season averaging a double-double with 22.5 points and 11.5 rebounds per game, and rose up a three-star prospect according to Rivals.com by returning strong for his senior season after missing his entire junior year due to injury. USC already added the services of Jordan McLaughlin, an all-CIF First Team selection and sixth-ranked point guard recruit according to ESPN.com out of Etiwanda HS, Malik Price-Martin the No. 4-ranked player in Florida according to 247Sports and Jabari Craig, a ranked power forward commit. USC’s recruiting class is currently ranked No. 24 overall by ESPN.com. MARQUETTI SCOUTING REPORT: The high-flying wing is a terror along the baseline due to his length, assertiveness, and hang time.

Cynthia Cooper Hires Two New Assistants

After reaching the NCAA Tournament, and clinching the Pac-12 Tournament Title in unsuspecting fashion, USC women's basketball head coach Cynthia Cooper-Dyke has acquired some fresh faces to join her coaching staff for next season.

USC brings Beth Burns, the former San Diego State head coach who vaunts an impressive resume during her 21-year head coaching career, and also welcomes Taja Edwards (Carson, Calif.). Edwards, the former assistant at Cal State Fullerton, brings a nice taste to the Southern California recruiting circle as a former McDonald's All-American back in high school for powerhouse program Long Beach Poly.

That obviously means changes are coming to the staff, and previous assistants Brandi Manning and Evan Unrau (from the previous Michael Cooper staff) were not retained for next season. The Women of Troy will lose arguably their best player, a top-10 all-time leading scorer and dominant locker room presence, in Cassie Harberts.

But the rest of the roster does return, looking to build off an impressive postseason tournament run in their second season under coach Cooper.
