Current Records: Oregon 10-6; Southern California 14-1
What to Know
The Oregon Ducks lost both of their matches to the #5 Southern California Trojans last season on scores of 58-72 and 68-82, so they're hoping to turn the tables this season. Oregon is on the road again this past Saturday and plays against the Trojans at 11 p.m. ET Jan. 15 at Galen Center. These two teams come into the matchup bolstered by wins in their previous games.
This past Thursday, Oregon narrowly escaped with a win as the squad sidled past the UCLA Bruins 84-81. Six players on Oregon scored in the double digits: guard Jacob Young (23), guard Will Richardson (16), center N'Faly Dante (12), forward Quincy Guerrier (11), forward Eric Williams Jr. (10), and guard De'Vion Harmon (10).
Speaking of close games: USC was able to grind out a solid victory over the Oregon State Beavers this past Thursday, winning 81-71. USC can attribute much of their success to forward Chevez Goodwin, who dropped a double-double on 20 points and 12 boards, and guard Drew Peterson, who had 17 points in addition to seven rebounds. Peterson's performance made up for a slower contest against the Stanford Cardinal last week.
The Ducks are expected to lose this next one by 6. Those who got lucky with them against the spread this past Thursday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
The wins brought Oregon up to 10-6 and the Trojans to 14-1. Oregon is 5-4 after wins this year, USC 12-1.
