USC Trojans prospects
The Trojans are coming off a very successful season, and are looking for their first deep tournament run in quite some time. The Mobley brothers have given them a dynamic big man duo, and Evan is averaging a whopping three blocks per game while protecting the rim. That interior defense will be an invaluable asset in a tournament setting where outside shots often stop falling. The Trojans have plenty of length outside of the 7’0 freshman, and should be able to matchup defensively against just about anybody. They aren’t great free throw shooters (64.7 percent), which could come back to haunt them. A matchup with Kansas in the Round of 32 would be very interesting.
