USC will not host Oregon and Oregon State at the Galen Center next season or travel to Cal and Stanford as part of its 18-game Pac-12 schedule.
Missing Cal is probably the easiest road game in the conference next season so that’s not a plus.
- The Pac-12 announced it will go to a 20-game conference schedule for the 2020-21 season.
- Boogie Ellis, a point guard who signed with Duke last November, has asked to be released from his letter of intent. USC was one of his final five choices last fall but Memphis is probably considered a frontrunner. USC still has a scholarship available if Ellis wants to sign with the Trojans.
