Jimoke Wedding

| No Comments
Former USC head football manager Brian Wagner married his Trojan sweetheart Annie Faulkner over the weekend at Troy.  Wagner, who now works for the University of Washington athletic department, received a groom's cake recognizing his split Pac-12 allegiances, but otherwise, the wedding was all Cardinal and Gold.

USC baseball alum Grant Green delivered the first walk-off hit of his young career for the Angels ending a dramatic Sunday in Anaheim. 

Click here for his post-game interview and Gatorade bath.

Green, who serves a utility role for Mike Scioscia, started at his natural shortstop position for the first time in the major leagues.  He saved the game ball from his first recorded out at shortstop, and then presumably from his game-winning single up the middle.

Leslie Love

USC women's basketball great Lisa Leslie will be inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame as part of the 2015 class.  The selection is inarguable given Leslie's legendary resume including four Olympic gold medals, three WNBA MVP awards, two WNBA championships and the 1994 Naismith National Player of the Year honor.

Click here for more on the 2015 class.

As an iconic leader of the Women of Troy, Leslie was a three-time All-American and left the program as the conference's all-time leading scorer (now third) and rebounder (now fourth).  She remains USC's career scoring, rebounding and shot blocking leader.

More symbolically, Leslie threw down the first dunk in WNBA history and continues to serve as one of women's basketball's greatest pioneers and ambassadors.

USA Men's Volley at Galen

| 1 Comment
Team USA Men's Volleyball will take on Iran at the Galen Center (Saturday, August 9 at 7 p.m.) as part of a four-match swing through Southern California, including stops in Anaheim (August 13), San Diego (August 15) and UCLA (August 16).

Click here for more info.

The Americans are ranked No. 4 in the world thanks in large part to the contribution of two Trojans, setter Micah Christenson and outside hitter Murphy Troy (pictured).  Christenson is going into his senior year at USC, so Team USA is just a summer gig, while Troy is a former National Player of the Year for the Trojans.
