The Galen Center’s hoops sizzle and swish as the USC Trojans try to ride their hard-nosed brand of basketball to a victory over Nebraska on their road to a fifth consecutive appearance at the NCAA tournament. Despite losing star forward Nikola Vucevic to the NBA draft, Head Coach Kevin O’Neill dodges the dreaded rebuilding period with a roster built around the dynamic guard tandem of Jio Fontan and Pac-10 all-freshman honoree Maurice Jones. Nebraska’s usual tactics of planting seven-foot corn stalks in front of their basket will prove all for naught as the Trojan’s athletic squad harvests a bountiful feast of points from vicious dunks and high-arced three-point shots. Iowa transfer and All-Big Ten honorable mention Aaron Fuller will be on the lookout for backdoor cuts and suspicious wooden horses as he patrols the paint. In its fifth year as the home of USC basketball, the raucous 10,258-seat Galen Center maintains its reputation as a hostile environment for opposing squads and off-the-clock librarians.
University of Southern California Trojans
USC's student athletes have a proud history of winning, and not just in collegiate sports. They also dominate in international competition at the highest level. Since the Trojans sent their first athlete to the Summer Games in 1904, they've won 587 medals, including at least one gold medal in every Games since 1912. If USC were its own country, it would have the 16th-most medals of any nation, but still no standing army to defend the podium from jealous fourth-place finishers.
Trojans' accolades at home are just as impressive. The football team commands an all-time record above .700, winning more than 30 bowl games and as many conference championships. All in all, USC teams have won 97 men's national titles and 25 women's, more than all but two other schools in the country.
