**We could use some help covering USC Basketball.**
“There's another good college basketball team in Los Angeles, and No. 8 UCLA found out the hard way.
Shaqquan Aaron scored a career-high 23 points off the bench, and Southern California matched its season best with 14 3-pointers in an 84-76 upset of the Bruins on Wednesday night.”
“USC has certainly had its ups and downs since Andy Enfield was hired. But make no mistake, Wednesday night’s 84-76 win over No. 8 UCLA at Galen Center was the biggest statement win in the Enfield era.”
“UCLA plays defense at a level that should be unacceptable for a team with this level of talent, and for the second week in a row an opponent recognized how to consistently beat that defense.”
“Now 18-4 on the season, USC has a signature win for it’s NCAA Tournament resume and bragging rights in the LA basketball scene with their fourth-consecutive win over the crosstown rival.”
“For USC, it marked a résumé-padding victory, its first of the season over a ranked team, as it improved to 18-4 overall and 5-4 in the Pac-12 Conference.”
