The USC Trojans (15-3, 4-1 conference) have been dunking their way into the national spotlight for some time now. After two brutal years, Coach Andy Enfield's third season has the Trojans currently sitting at the top of the Pac-12 Standings and into the Associated Press (21), USA Today Coaches Poll (25) , and CBS Sports (20) rankings.
USC is on a three game winning streak which includes a quadruple-overtime victory over the 7th-ranked team at the time and a 14-point victory over the UCLA Bruins. USC also has wins over Wichita State (26th in the CBS poll) and conference victories over Arizona State and Washington State.
USC has dropped three games this year, their first was to Xavier who is one of the best teams in the country. Their second was to Monmouth who the Trojans had already defeated earlier in the season (Monmoth also has victories over Notre Dame and UCLA this season). The latest and perhaps most disappointing came at the hands of the Washington Huskies who are also 4-1 in Pac-12 Conference play.
USC is on a bit of a break but will return to action Thursday night on the road against the Oregon Ducks January 21 at 6pm on the Pac-12 Network.
