Sept. 10, 2015
LOS ANGELES – Once again nearly every USC men’s basketball game during the 2015-16 season will be broadcast, it was announced by the Pac-12 Conference today (Sept. 10). As of now, 30 of USC’s 31 regular season games will be available on the Pac-12 Network, one of the ESPN family of networks or Fox Sports 1, with all games being available on the USC radio flagship station ESPNLA 710, one of its affiliates or on the TuneIn Radio app.
Andy Enfield’s young and improving men’s team had a very successful trip to Italy in the summer and can’t wait for the season to begin. The Trojans return their top nine scorers from last season’s team, including guard Katin Reinhardt (12.5 ppg), forward Nikola Jovanovic (12.3 ppg) and Pac-12 All-Freshman selection guard Jordan McLaughlin (12.1 ppg) who all scored in double figures. In addition, USC has added two top 60 recruits in freshman forwards Bennie Boatwright and Chimezie Metu.
USC has 22 games scheduled on the Pac-12 Network, beginning with the home opener vs. San Diego on Nov. 13 at 5 p.m. That game will be part of a doubleheader with the women’s team which hosts Hope International on that same day. USC’s next three games will also be carried by the Pac-12 Network: Nov. 16 vs. Monmouth (7 p.m.), Nov. 21 vs. New Mexico (TBD) and Nov. 23 vs. CSUN (6 p.m.).
USC then will travel to Orlando, Fla. to face a tough AdvoCare Invitational field from Nov. 26-29, with all the games carried on one of the ESPN family of networks. USC’s first game will be against Wichita State on Nov. 26 on ESPN2 (11 a.m.). If USC wins, it will face the winner of Alabama/Xavier on Nov. 27 (11:30 a.m.) on ESPNU.

USC’s final game in Orlando will be against one of four teams (Dayton, Iowa, Monmouth or Notre Dame) on one of the three ESPN networks at a time to be determined.
