Stanford at USC
Thursday February 22nd - 7:30PM PST
SC has a chance to get one back against Stanford tonight at the Galen Center. A win tonight gets us back on track after the embarrassing loss to ASU on Sunday. As we look forward to the tournament I am more worried about seeding at this point. I think we will be in the tournament, unless the wheels completely fall off, so wins are needed to improve our seeding hope.
Keys to the game
- Gibson must stay fresh- I'm a little worried about his level of fatigue and he will need a lot of help down low. He will need it, as the Lopez brothers are sure to have a strong presence.
- Run early and run often- SC's speed is a big advantage against these big guys. We saw it against Arizona and we need it now. If SC can bring a little "Showtime" to the Galen Center tonight I see no reason why they can't wear the Lopez boys down. When they play an up-tempo game they are unbeaten.
- Stay Aggressive on Defense- the defense has had some fits and starts this season so now is the time to settle in and play them close.
