USC Men's Basketball: Coach Enfield Presser vs. Montana 11/11/16

From the Recap from the Los Angeles Times:

“The Trojans played without starting forward Bennie Boatwright, a game-time scratch with back spasms, but guards Elijah Stewart and Shaqquan Aaron helped USC hold off Montana, 75-61.

It wasn’t exactly the high-flying, fastbreak basketball of USC coach Andy Enfield’s wildest dreams, but it was certainly effective enough for openers.

Stewart, one of only two returning USC starters with Boatwright out, led the Trojans with 30 points. Aaron, the talented transfer from Louisville, started slowly but soon displayed his obvious athleticism. He finished with 17 points and seven rebounds in his first game for USC.”
