Go Trojans!

Last Practice at Galen

| No Comments

The Trojans hit the practice floor for the final time this season at the Galen Center in preparation for their last road trip to Arizona to take on the Sun Devils tomorrow night, before heading to Tuscon to play the Wildcats on Saturday.

"We aren't going to to play this road trip like its the last road trip," said Head Coach Kevin O'Neill. "We are going to finish it out right."

These last two games in the Desert will be the last for seniors, Mike Gerrity, Dwight Lewis, and Marcus Johnson.

Gerrity, who joined the team during the December recess due to NCAA transfer rules, will only dawn the cardinal and gold uniform for twenty-two games. The former California Southern Section player of the year, made an immediate impact for the Trojans leading them to a championship at the Diamond Head Classic, while earning the tournament MVP award along the way.

Dwight Lewis will leave USC as the all-time leader in games played, and a four year starter. For him, this last weekend in the desert represents one last chance to showcase his abilities on the collegiate level in preparation for a shot at the NBA.

Marcus Johnson has showcased glimpses of greatness throughout the season. His 39" vertical leap is only one dimension of his playing arsenal that he hopes will land him in a professional basketball role.

For them, and the rest of the Trojans, this final road trip presents the opportunity to showcase their full potential, with nothing to lose and only everything to gain.

Here are a few pictures from today's action.
