USC Trojans Basketball Schedule in 2014-15
The USC Trojans are ready to embark on their reign over their opponents
on the basketball court this season as they play host to some of the best teams in the nation. The Trojans always have a roster
brimming with talented student athletes that are prepared to compete in the name of school pride, and this season is no different.
The Trojans call the Pac-12 Conference home, a league that boasts some of the top college basketball programs in the entire
country. The Trojans have their sights set on finishing atop the conference standings this season, but that's no easy task.
With so many competitive teams up and down the Pac-12 ranks, the Trojans are going to have to beat a lot of good teams to
put together a good enough win-loss record to contend for the top spot in the conference Pac-12 standings in 2014-15. The
team had a 2013-14 season in which they struggled in and out of the conference. The Trojans are not satisfied with that kind
of season, so they're looking to improve this time around. With some tough teams coming into the Galen Center in 2014-15,
the Trojans will have plenty of opportunities to show their fans and the rest of the Pac-12 that they means business.
Trojans have a big game coming their way this season when the Arizona Wildcats hit the court at the Galen Center. The Wildcats
could very well be the best team in the Pac-12 this season, as they were last year, and giving them a run for their money
will be a significant challenge for this Trojans squad. However, if the Trojans can find a way to score enough points against
Arizona's suffocating defense, they could be in for one of their biggest victories of the year. USC fans would love to see
the Trojans take down one of the top teams in the Pac-12, and that's why this game is sure to see USC supporters come out
in big numbers to cheer on their favorite hoopsters.
Another big game is coming to the Galen Center when the Oregon
Ducks hit the court in Los Angeles to try to take away a victory from the Trojans. The Ducks are a quality team that will
be gunning for one of the top spots in the Pac-12 standings this season. They were able to finish third in the conference
ranks last season, and the squad could be much improved in 2014-15. Slowing down the Oregon offense will be priority number
one of the Trojans, and that could be enough to keep this game close until the end. If the USC team can pull out the victory
in this one, it could be just the kind of win they need to gain some momentum. There will be plenty of other tough games coming
the Trojans' way this season, as they host conference foes like the UCLA Bruins, Stanford Cardinal and more. Make sure to
check out the schedule to see when each program visits USC this season.
