What to Know
The Stanford Cardinal lost both of their matches to the #7 Southern California Trojans last season on scores of 66-72 and 42-79, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season. The Cardinal and USC will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Maples Pavilion. Both teams come into the matchup bolstered by wins in their previous games.
Stanford ultimately received the gift of a 79-76 win from a begrudging Liberty squad three weeks ago. Having forecasted a close victory for them, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Stanford’s forward Spencer Jones looked sharp as he shot 5-for-8 from beyond the arc and finished with 25 points and six boards.
Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the contest between USC and the California Golden Bears this past Thursday was still a pretty decisive one as USC wrapped it up with a 77-63 win on the road. Four players on the Trojans scored in the double digits: forward Isaiah Mobley (19), guard Drew Peterson (17), guard Boogie Ellis (14), and forward Chevez Goodwin (12).
The Cardinal are now 8-4 while USC sits at 13-0. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Stanford is stumbling into the game with the 20th most turnovers per game in college basketball, having accrued 15.4 on average. USC has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 352nd worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 9.8 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
