USC upsets UCLA at UCLA! 

Post#1 » by WadeKnicks2010 » Sat Jan 19, 2008 11:11 pm

And Mayo played like crap. Is USC a serious team to consider now? They've got so little on the frontcourt but they're making things happening anyway. Jefferson, Gibson, and Hackett are all underrated. Hackett can be a legit NBA point guard right now in my opinion as a backup on some teams. If they can beat UCLA with Mayo being a non factor, what would happen if Mayo started playing like the guy we've been hearing that he'd play like since he was in middle school?

just cuz mayo only had 16pts and 4 ast doesnt mean he played like crap.
USC has been a good defense team all year, its just a matter of if they can score enough to win

remember, they almost beat Kansas AND Memphis

They couldn't stop Davon Jefferson that was the problem. And UCLA had trouble against USC's Triangle & 2 defense, outside of Shipp they don't have decent perimeter shooting to beat that defense.

I don't know why more teams don't use the T2 defense it keeps teams off balance and you can't penetrate the middle if you got shot blockers like SC does.

USC is going to be just like last years team, capable of making a run and knocking off a good team like Texas or being a first round exit. They are like dr. jeckell and my hyde.
