I want to start off today’s notes with an appreciation of Paul Westphal.
Westphal was on the 1971 USC men’s basketball team that had a 24-2 record. He was a first-team All-American the following season. He averaged 16.9 points a game in his career with a high of 20.3 in 1971-72. Westphal scored 12,397 points during his 12-year NBA career and averaged 15.6 points and 4.4 assists per game in his career.
- USC defeated Utah, 64-46, at the Galen Center. Evan Mobley did not take a shot in 30 minutes. Mobley is the first player at USC in the past 25 years to play 30 minutes and not have a field-goal attempt. Perhaps it’s a top-secret Enfield strategy.
- As previously reported, defensive end Korey Foreman signed a letter of intent with USC and officially announced it today. Defensive back Ceyair Wright of Loyola also committed to USC. The Trojans’ class is ranked No. 8 by 247 and No. 12 by Rivals.
