The USC men's basketball team faced off against the Oregon Ducks last night, losing 81-89 on the road. Partner site Pacific Takes also has some football recruiting updates. According to the site, defensive end Max Tupai is waiting to see a more permanent coaching lineup at USC before making his final decision, and four-star recruit A.J. Brown is considering an official visit. Check out Pacific Takes for more recruiting news.
As far as the men's basketball team is concerned, Reign of Troy points out that losing to Oregon proves a "humbling" experience for the Trojans, who will still have to fight their way through heavy competition to reach the NCAA Basketball Tournament. The Trojans trailed by more than ten points for a significant portion of the game, and Oregon saw stand-out performances from seniors Elgin Cook and Dwayne Benjamin.
The Trojans are on the road for their next game on Sunday, when they will play Oregon State.
