What you need to know about USC
USC was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Tuesday, falling 75-69 to the Stanford Cardinal. Southern California’s loss came about despite a quality game from forward Isaiah Mobley, who had 16 points and five assists in addition to seven boards.
Mobley has been outstanding for the Trojans in 2021-22. The junior forward is averaging 15.4 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game this year. He will undoubtedly be a matchup problem for Oregon State. USC is 8-6 against the spread in 2021-22.
What you need to know about Oregon State
Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Oregon State as they fell 78-76 to the Oregon Ducks on Monday. Guard Jarod Lucas just could not get things rolling his way, playing for 33 minutes but putting up just eight points on 4-for-14 shooting.
With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. If USC want to win Thursday, they will need to focus on stopping Oregon State’s center Roman Silva, who had 12 points along with nine rebounds, and forward Warith Alatishe, who had 16 points in addition to seven boards against Oregon. The Beavers are 4-10 against the spread this season.
