USC Men's Basketball: Trojans look to get back on track at Stanford

USC has lost three out of their last four and will take on a struggling Stanford team.

It's been a rough stretch for the USC Men's Basketball team. The Trojans (19-8, 8-6) have lost three out of their last four games including suffering their first home loss of the season on Sunday as Utah beat the Trojans, 80-69. Fortunately for the Trojans, they will face off tonight against the struggling Stanford Cardinal at 8:00 P.T. on Pac-12 Networks.

Previewing the Cardinal:

Stanford (13-12, 6-8) will most finish this season with their worst record since 2010-2011. In his eighth year at the helm, Johnny Dawkins' team has struggled to find consistency and the team has lost five of their last seven, including their most recent game, a 64-53 loss @ Washington on Saturday. The Cardinal have even struggled at home as they have a 10-5 record at Maples Pavilion. One bright spot for Stanford as been the play of senior forward Rosco Allen. Allen, a native of Hungary, has increased his game dramatically from last year. He leads the Cardinal with 15.6 points per game (7.3 in 2014-15) and has eclipsed the 20 point total seven times this year.
