What to Know
After a six-game homestand, the Oregon State Beavers will be on the road. The Beavers and the #5 Southern California Trojans will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 11 p.m. ET on Thursday at Galen Center. The teams split their matchups last year, with Oregon State winning the first 58-56 at home and USC taking the second 75-62.
Oregon State was close but no cigar on Monday as they fell 78-76 to the Oregon Ducks. Guard Jarod Lucas had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only eight points on 4-for-14 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, USC was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap on Tuesday as they fell 75-69 to the Stanford Cardinal. A silver lining for USC was the play of forward Isaiah Mobley, who had 16 points and five assists along with seven rebounds.
The Beavers are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. They hadn't treated bettors all too well in the past (they are 4-10), but they might be worth taking a chance on now after beating the spread three games in a row.
With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. If the Trojans want to win, they will need to focus on stopping Oregon State's center Roman Silva, who had 12 points in addition to nine boards, and forward Warith Alatishe, who had 16 points in addition to seven rebounds. We'll see whether or not they are up to the challenge.
