USC basketball is back in action today at home against the Washington Huskies in the Galen Center. You can also watch on the Pac-12 Network, live stream it on Pac-12 Live or listen on Tune In. It is also Fan Appreciation Day, Senior Day, and the final home game of the season.
USC Men’s basketball is in playoff mode right now:
This is the final regular season game left on the USC Trojans basketball schedule. It is a must win game for the Trojans to have any hopes of a playing in the NCAA Tournament. If the Trojans drop this last game to a sub par team then only a Pac-12 championship or a very deep run in the tournament may get them a slot in the NCAA Tournament. Quite frankly, even if they do complete the sweep of the Washington schools this week they may still need a deep Pac-12 Conference tournament run to keep their postseason hopes alive. Currently Lunardi at ESPN has USC among the last 4 in. Losing to a 20-loss team, at home, would probably kill their chances.

“BREAKING DOWN WASHINGTON -- Washington is coming off a 98-66 loss at UCLA on March 1 and has lost 11 consecutive games since winning in overtime vs. Coloardo on Jan. 18. The Huskies are led by freshman and Pac-12 leading scorer Markelle Fultz who is averaging 23.2 points, nearly five points more than the conference's second-leading scorer. USC won 82-74 at Washington on Feb. 1 and trails 71-70 in the all-time series, which reflects two USC wins vacated due to NCAA penalty.”
