Tally It Up

USC men's basketball announced the final addition to the 2012-13 roster last week as Tennessee transfer Renaldo Woolridge joins the team for a year as a graduate exception.

Woolridge-Headshot.jpegWoolridge (pictured) averaged 4.3 points per game in 13 minutes per contest for the Vols, but he did break out for 17 points at eventual national champion Kentucky.  He will be yet another new boost to Kevin O'Neill's offensive overhaul after last year's struggles.

Here is what the USC rotation looks like now:

G Jio Fontan - 10.5 ppg for USC in 2010-11
G Maurice Jones - 13 ppg as last year's leading scorer
G J.T. Terrell - 11.1 ppg for Wake Forest in 2010-11
G Greg Allen - 4.7 ppg for USC last year
F Renaldo Woolridge - 4.3 ppg for Tennessee last year
F Ari Stewart - 8.5 ppg for Wake Forest in 2010-11
F Byron Wesley - 9.6 ppg for USC last year
F Aaron Fuller - 10.6 ppg for USC last year
F Eric Wise - 16.3 ppg for UCI in 2010-11
C Dewayne Dedmon - 7.6 ppg for USC last year
C James Blasczyk - 3.2 ppg for USC last year

If you add it up, the Trojans bring 99.4 points per game of Division 1 scoring into this season.  Plus, USC will add two true freshman in G Brendyn Taylor and F Strahinja Gavrilovic.

The Trojans averaged a Pac-12 low 52.6 points per game last season, but the talent has arrived to get the Galen Center scoreboard working again.
