The Trojans can still clinch a share of the Pac-10 regular season title with three games remaining on the Pac-10 Calendar. USC will need to win out, while Arizona State must beat first-place Cal on February 27th, followed by Stanford knocking off Cal in their rivalry game on March 6th. Arizona State then must lose to UCLA in their last game of conference play on March 6th. This will then force a three-way tie for the Conference Championship.

O'Neill: 'We have to be men about it'

| No Comments
Here's what Coach Kevin O'Neill had to say to the media following USC's 54-44 loss to Oregon on Thursday night:

  • "We didn't have it tonight. It's a shame to play that poorly in the second half."
  • "We had a general lack of energy and didn't play how we needed to play. It's unfortunate."
  • "If you score 12 points [in a half] at this level, you're not going to beat anybody."
  • "We didn't play too well in the first half, honestly. We didn't come out with any oomph at all."
  • "In my estimation, our team has started to wear down."
  • "We have three games left to play. We've got to play our butts off each game. We have to be men about it."
