USC Reaches Pac-12 Finals Vs. Arizona

USC routed Oregon, 74-54, as Jonah Mathews scored 27 points and the Trojans advanced to the championship game of the Pac-12 Tournament for the first time since 2009.

USC coach Andy Enfield: “Well, it’s really amazing what our players have done and our coaching staff to stay together. Without De’Anthony Melton, who will be a high draft pick in the NBA Draft, not playing a single game for us, without Bennie Boatwright who was our leading scorer last year, with him being out three different times and out for the season.

“With Derryck Thornton missing 11 games now and Jonah Mathews missing a few games, it’s amazing that we’re here because our players have stepped up. When we have 40 percent of our starting lineup out with Melton and Boatwright, that being said, we’re now 7-1 without Bennie in the Pac-12.
“And Bennie has meant so much to our program the last three years. He’s just a terrific basketball player. But
that means we have a pretty deep roster and our guys have played excellent basketball. Our defense right now is the best it’s been. And we have to rely on that as we go forward here.”

    1. Whatever happens from here, Deric, I guess it IS time to say a belated thanks to Coach Enfield (and the Trojan basketball team) for being able to overcome all the challenges he (and they) faced this year.

      1. Hey Mike,

        My name is SAS and I’m new here (wink). I agree. Enfield needs some people at USC to take notice on what he’s done.

      2. What, are you 100% certain Steve that Little Snarky Scottie didn’t thank Enfield? LOL — what a silly little troll the Wolf is.
