“Elijah Stewart scored a career-high 30 points, Shaqquan Aaron added a career-high 17, and Southern California beat Montana 75-61 in the season opener for both teams Friday night.
The Trojans trailed by double digits in the first half but rallied to win its seventh home opener in the last eight years.”
“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.”
