An extended 1-3-1 defense by the Beavers has been plaguing USC's offensive attack. The Trojans have only four points on the half. Head Coach Kevin O'Neill has switched to a two-point-guard front with both Mike Gerrity and Donte Smith on the floor. The added speed he hopes will allow the Trojans to get into the middle of the zone and break it from there.
