  2. Basketball: A look at the 2012-13 depth chart

    Pedro Moura

    USC basketball's offseason won't compare to UCLA's, with the Bruins adding on big-time recruits Kyle Anderson, Shabazz Muhammad and Tony Parker, but the Trojans will also be a heck of a lot better in 2012-13 than they were in 2011-2012. Of course,...

  3. Basketball: Washington 80, USC 58

    Pedro Moura

    LOS ANGELES -- Almost everything about the USC basketball team's 2011-2012 season has been a full-fledged disappointment, from the Trojans' 6-24 record to the injuries that have ravaged the squad to downright embarrassing attendance numbers at the Ga...

  4. Basketball: Stanford 59, USC 47

    Pedro Moura

    LOS ANGELES -- It's getting to the point now where it's near-impossible to expect the USC Trojans to beat any opponent. They'll compete the whole game and they'll stay within reach -- at least for the first half -- but they just won't win. There's...

  5. Basketball: Cal 75, USC 49

    Pedro Moura

    LOS ANGELES -- For most of one half of Thursday night's game against Cal, lowly USC looked like it could actually compete against the class of the Pac-12 conference. Buoyed by superb play from sophomore point guard Maurice Jones, the Trojans actua...

  6. For Jackson, a chance to show what he can do

    Pedro Moura

    LOS ANGELES -- As far back as he can recall, USC forward Garrett Jackson has never lost more games than he's won in a single season. Not at any level, and not at any sport, either -- and he played four growing up. But that much is a virtual gua...

  7. Basketball: UCLA 66, USC 47

    Pedro Moura

    LOS ANGELES -- A rivalry game would bring out the energy, right? 5-12 USC's chance to redeem itself a bit against crosstown UCLA would mean the Trojans would play with more focus than they had been exhibiting of late, right? Wrong. The Troja...

  8. USC vs. UCLA and the story of Noah's Ark

    Pedro Moura

    Leave it to USC Trojans coach Kevin O'Neill to call on the Bible to try to reach his team in advance of Sunday's home game against UCLA. O'Neill, the Trojans' third-year coach finding himself under pressure to win now because of his team's disappo...

  9. Basketball: Arizona 57, USC 46

    Pedro Moura

    LOS ANGELES -- They don't make shots, they don't defend well enough to win, and their free-throw shooting is abysmal. You can combine those factors to come to a fairly easy conclusion about this year's USC Trojans basketball team. Or, if you're he...

  10. Basketball: Arizona State 62, USC 53

    Pedro Moura

    LOS ANGELES -- This one was bad. Bad, in that it was against a 4-9 Arizona State team with just one previous win over a major-conference squad. Bad, in that the Sun Devils played the game with just six scholarship players and managed to post their...

  11. Basketball: Kansas 63, USC 47

    Pedro Moura

    LOS ANGELES -- USC's defense is legitimately great. The Trojans consistently hold teams far below their per-game point averages and force them to alter their offensive gameplans. It's unfortunate, then, that they're also incredibly inept on the...

  12. Basketball: New Mexico 44, USC 41

    Pedro Moura

    LOS ANGELES -- If only they could start how they finished, the USC Trojans might actually have a pretty good record at this point. Instead, they're 4-6 now on the season and need to sweep their remaining three non-conference games to avoid beginni...

  13. Basketball: Nebraska 64, USC 61 (2OT)

    Pedro Moura

    LOS ANGELES -- At some point, certain things become a tradition. There's usually a time element involved -- as in, do something enough times over a relatively short amount of time, and it's officially tradition. For USC, giving up a late lead a...

  14. Basketball: USC 66, CSUN 59

    Pedro Moura

    LOS ANGELES -- He looked around the arena, soaking it all in, and gave his one of wide-mouthed smiles. He had the look of a man ready to start off a season. But, inside, Dewayne Dedmon was freaking out. Just before tip-off of USC's 2011-2012 se...

  15. Basketball: 2011-2012 season preview

    Pedro Moura

    Let's get this out of the way, first off: 22-year-old USC forward Dewayne Dedmon is like nothing you've ever seen before. Not necessarily better than anything you've ever seen, just different - significantly different. He's 7 feet tall, having ...
