Washington State at USC

DavOn Jefferson was DavOff Jefferson as Roger Walters suspended him for the game for "undisclosed reasons". That hurt USC as the experienced Cougars sliced and diced them (or rather picked and popped them). Hold the Mayo, OJ is not the USC savior people were expecting!

This was a classic neo-Bennett game, with threes, select runs, and Baynes space-eating inside, although most of the first half was more of a classic Dick Bennett slugfest. Perhaps the emergence of Baynes inside is what could be the difference for the Cougars between a second round NCAA exit and an Elite 8 run. You heard it here! You heard me! Not that I am Chief Payne of the House of Payne ;-)

Pink Floyd has his work cut out for him. The team looks much better on paper than on the court and that's not something a coach wants to see happening. Especially when you have a super dooper freshman playing and your team is playing worse than it did before. I'm sure they'll figure it out eventually, but will it be enough, or will they square off with Kentucky in the post-season NIT Final Four? :)
