Jacki Gemelos : Women's Basketball: USC guard Jacki Gemelos was named a finalist for the 11th annual V Foundation Comeback Award earlier this week after seeing her first full year of action with the team sice missing more than three seasons due to multiple knee injuries. She helped lead the Women of Troy to two crucial wins over Washington State and Washington to end the Pac-10 season last weekend. Against Washington she had 15 points and made four 3-pointers including one from about 28 feet to force overtime as the Trojans pulled out the 65-61 victory.
Murphy Troy : Men's Volleyball: USC senior Murphy Troy led No. 1 USC to a pair of dramatic 5-set home wins over No. 2 BYU. In the first match, he had a team-best 22 kills while hitting a blistering .526 and he served 3 aces. In the second match, he had a team-high 18 kills (hitting .438) and added 8 digs and 3 blocks. His ace in the second set was the 125th of his career, a new USC rally scoring era career record.
