The USC Trojans are linked to UCLA at the top of the Pac-12 rating (both are 12-3 in the conference) but only 1½ games ahead of an Oregon team (9-3 in the Conference), which she will attend on Monday.
The Oregon defense was less efficient on the road than Eugene, allowing 14.2 points more per 100 possessions to defend in street games versus home games. </ P To make matters worse, the Ducks will have to attempt to close down a USC interior that ranks 17th in the nation in terms of rebound rate and 6th in the nation in blocks per game. The planned top 5 NBA draft pick Evan Mobley ranks fourth among all Division I players. 3.1 blocks per game.
USC ranks third in the country in the opponent’s 2-point shooting percentage and has allowed more than 73 points in only two of the last 21 games.
After Oregon allowed at least 70 points in five of their seven games on a street or neutral field, USC should get the upper hand and stay at the conference .
