USC was supposed to beat UCLA tonight at the Galen Central. Instead, the Trojans lost, 83-72, and are back on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament. USC was swept by UCLA for the first time since 2014-15. Thanks, Enfield!
So it looks like USC might need to win one-or-two two games in the Pac-12 Tournament to be safely in the NCAA Tournament. USC will play the Oregon State-Washington winner on Thursday at 6 p.m. The Trojans would likely face Oregon or Utah after that.
Here is Andy Enfield after the UCLA loss: “We’re extremely proud of our players. They’ve had a terrific season. We’ve had significant injuries in the out-of-conference. We’ve had one of our best players not play all season. We had our leading scorer from two years ago now out for the season.”
