“The Gauchos scored the first basket of the game only to see the Trojans lead from the 18:50 mark of the first half. The Gauchos were still within 66-59 with 8:16 remaining before USC pulled away.
USC has won 15 consecutive non-conference games at the Galen Center, beating UCSB in 13 out of the last 14 meetings. The Gauchos have not beaten the Trojans since 2002.”
“USC nearly scored 100 points, but stretches when they kept shooting but failed to score allowed UCSB to stay competitive.
Meanwhile, USC allowed the Gauchos their highest scoring total of the season so far, shooting 45.5% from the field.
Ultimately, the outing showed just why the Trojans are such an intriguing prospect this season.”
